Its DMC 1450 VMC has a travelling column design with a top-mounted carriage unit, 28% bigger linear guides and 25% bigger ball-screw spindles, which are said to create maximum process stability. Thermal management with cooling of the ball-thread nuts and guides in all three linear axes provides component accuracy, the company said.

The DMC 1450 V has travels of 1450 x 700 x 550mm. The table features a clamping surface of 1700 x 750 mm and a capacity of 2000kg. The standard DMC 1450 V uses a 14,000 rpm spindle with 121 Nm of torque, rapid traverse speeds up to 36 m/min and a tool magazine with 20 pockets.

The Lasertec 45 Shape 3D uses a laser for cutting and texturing. The unit has up to five axes, and depending on the technology and material, wall angles can be as low as 5 degrees.

Laser removal occurs horizontally at thicknesses of 0.3-10µm. The unit is priced at just below €110,000 for the 3-axis version, the company said. The company offers a swivel/round table with torque technology for 5-axis operations.

The final world premiere, the DMU 125 P Duo-Block UMC, has 30% higher component accuracy thanks to temperature management, the supplier said. The unit suits applications ranging from aerospace to tool and mould construction.
