In their milling functions, the DMU FD machines are similar to the DMU P-series. They master simultaneous 5-sided- and up to 5-axis machining due to a universal swivel-head, which is infinitely adjustable between horizontal and vertical positions and functions as an NC-controlled B-axis (optional: A-axis). The turning features of the DMU 160 FD duoBLOCK® pay off especially during complete machining (milling and turning in a single setup!) for heavy and bulky parts. The NC-rotary table with direct-drive technology, a torque of 3,068.3 ft./lbs., a holding torque of 7,375.6 ft./lbs, and speeds of up to 250 rpm. permit a wide range of milling- and turning applications for large work pieces weighing up to 6,613.9 lbs.
