Makino Inc. featured its a61nx-5E horizontal machining center at IMTS 2014. Designed with an innovative pallet-change system, the a61nx-5E provides enhanced rigidity through a three-point bed casting and tiered column structure. It has X-, Y- and Z-axis travels of 730 mm (28.7 inches), 730 mm and 680 mm (26.8 inches), respectively. Linear acceleration is 1G on the X- and Y-axes, and 0.8 in the Z-axis. The twin-direct-drive rotary tables are said to offer improved access to all sides of a part, especially when using shorter tools.
