World premiere: In the 5-axis machining of long workpieces up to 2,300 mm, the DMF 200|8 continues its success story among travelling column machines
“With the DMF 200|8, DMG MORI has succeeded in continuing the success story of travelling column machines in the 5-axis range, with over 2,700 machines installed in the market to date,” Markus Rehm, Managing Director DECKEL MAHO Seebach, says. Thus, the world premiere also stands for absolute precision machining performance, which takes the travelling column series to a level never seen before.
“With a rigid table measuring 2,300 x 850 mm and traverse paths of 2,000 x 800 x 850 mm, the DMF 200|8 offers users in die & mold and aerospace sufficient scope to flexibly machine even long structural components or mold inserts”, Markus Rehm explains. The table load is 2,000 kg. During the development of the new machine concept, the working area of the machine was optimized by the innovative tool change. This takes place behind the work table – fast, collision-free and process-safe, so that the entire clamping surface can be used. Compared to the predecessor model, the working area of the DMF 200|8 is over 50 percent larger, creating new possibilities for machining complex components. Equipping the DMF 200|8 with 400 mm long tools is a unique selling point in this machine class.
