Five-axis machining center works light metal parts.

The AL 204 multi-spindle five-axis machining center produces complex light metal parts such as brake calipers, main brake cylinders, and valve housings. It features four individually-driven box spindles for HSK 63 tooling with separate anti-friction ways. The machine's standard control is a Fanuc 160 iMB. The AL 204 is part of the AL-series machines with a working area of 200x400x450 mm. Multi-axis, swiveling trunnions reduce changeover times and D- and A-axes bring parts into position. Alfing Corp.
