    High precision 5-axis machining of components up to 2.3m long can now be carried out productively on the new DMF 200|8 travelling-column machining centre from DMG MORI.

    Having a rigid table measuring 2,300 by 850mm and travels of 2,000 by 800 by 850mm, the DMF 200|8 offers users in the aerospace and mould-making industries scope to machine long components up to the maximum table load of 2,000kg. Rapid traverse in the linear axes is 50m/min as standard, but with an optional linear drive in the X-axis, it reaches 80m/min. The B-axis milling head with 6,000Nm maximum clamping torque offers a swivel range of ±120 degrees for flexible 5-axis machining.

    The 15,000rpm speedMASTER spindle is standard, while an extensive choice of other modular spindles is offered including a 200Nm high-torque version and a 20,000rpm high-speed version. The machine is equipped with a Siemens control and the latest version of DMG MORI’s proprietary APP-based user interface, CELOS.

    During the development of the DMF 200|8, the working area was optimised by the innovative tool change, which takes place behind the table for fast, safe, collision-free cutter exchange, so the entire clamping surface is available for use.

    Compared to the predecessor model, the working volume is over 50% larger, creating new possibilities for machining complex components. The ability to employ 400mm long tools is said to be a unique selling point in this machine class.
