174 MMS November 2017 MODERN EQUIPMENT REVIEW axis travels measuring 1,100 × 900 × 1,100 mm, is suited for stand-alone machining needs and linked production lines. It fits most machining applications and materials, and addresses four- and five-axis needs. The five-axis MCC features a rigid, dynamic A-a xis concept with a 100 percent duty rated 30-kW motor spindle. It has a large swivel range for maximum flexibility, offering 10,000 rpm and a low-end torque of 300 Nm. An easy-access twin pallet makes it ideal for loading via overhead crane or gantry for payloads as heavy as 1,500 kg. It integrates all benefits of the company's larger machines, such as accuracy, high stiffness and reliability. The geared-spindle four-axis machine, with 41 kW and 1,300 Nm of power, addresses high- torque machining needs. Central data systems can use the machines' networked status informa- tion to predictively organize production and maintenance to reduce downtime and ultimately increase machine availability. The MCC series is ready for digital networking in self-organizing production processes and can be fully integrated into the customer's manufacturing execution system infrastructure.
