The newly developed horizontal machining centres prove the versatile and proven duoBLOCK®-concept once and again. The 4th generation DMC 80 H duoBLOCK® is made for powerful heavy machining as well as highly productive series production. The feed drive’s intensive cooling measures provide 30% increased accuracy. Another advantage of the duoBLOCK®-concept is the comprehensive kit of tailored complete solutions for a wide range of applications. For instance, there are many optimum spindle options available for heavy machining tasks – among those the powerMASTER 1000 motor spindle with a maximum torque of 736.6 ft./lbs. at 9,000 rpm., as well as a gear spindle with 1,050.3 ft./lbs. at 8,000 rpm. Corresponding to the DMC 80 FD duoBLOCK® the DMC 80 H duoBLOCK® also features a wheel magazine with short tool change times of 0.5 seconds.
