The XS gantry mill can machine parts up to 20M long and has a wide range of tools and attachments. It has the capability of interchanging high speed and high torque spindle cartridges which offer maximum flexibility for processing heavy and complex components.

There is presence in the U.K. of two XS gantry machines in a Birmingham based company manufacturing automotive mould and die components.

We are pleased to announce the arrival of the ROLLER 5-axis high-speed portal-type machining centre at a local engineering company. The machining centre has a 1M x 1M square rotary table fitted and is capable of carrying up to 3,000kg. To control thermal growth of the spindle carried and maintain absolute accuracy at the tool point, the linear motor assembly is cooled by four separate chilling circuits.
