Dugard turns up productivity

Dugard Machine Tools (Hall 20, Stand 640) will be introducing a number of new machine tools on its stand. For instance, the company will unveil the Kitamura MedCenter5AX five-axis vertical machining centre for fast precise machining, as well as the larger Dugard GTX-620 five-axis machining centre.

Another MACH premiere will be given to the Hanwha brand of sliding-head turning centres. Here, the Hanwha XD38R incorporates the facility to rapidly switch from guide bush to non-guide bush operation. Also on the stand will be the SMEC SL2000ASY turning centre (pictured). Built upon the foundation of a single-piece Meehanite casting ribbed with a torque tube design, box slide-ways are present throughout the SMEC range, resulting in good vibration dampening and thermal displacement characteristics.
