The large-frame VM-6 is a high-performance VMC that provides the accuracy, rigidity, and thermal stability required for high-precision work. It has 64 x 32 x 30 in. travels, a 12,000-rpm spindle driven by a 30-hp vector dual-drive system, a 24-pocket side-mount tool changer, and a high-speed control with full look-ahead capability. It features massive cast-iron construction, with extensive internal ribbing on the castings to increase rigidity and damp vibrations. High-precision linear guides on all axes further increase rigidity, while offering low-friction and long-term reliability.
