Full-feature VMC is ideal for die and mold makers.

Fadal 2216FX is a full-feature machine that addresses rigidity, speed, and control standardization and capability in a rigid boxway-constructed CNC vertical machining center. Featuring Steinmeyer ERA+ dual-mounted ball screws for high accuracy, the 2216FX also has an industry-standard GE Fanuc Fadal 0i-MC control with over 200 advanced programming, operations, and troubleshooting features. Optional A1 Contour Control adds look-ahead capability to optimize acceleration and deceleration of the cutting speed.

A standard 10,000rpm 15hp spindle with automatic mechanical Hi/Lo shifting delivers a wide range of metal-cutting power. The shift point from Lo to Hi is at 2,5000rpm. X, Y, and Z axis travel on the 2216FX is 22"x16"x20" and it includes a 21-tool automatic changer. Additional standard features are chain hoist access, cool power thermal stability, remote manual pulse generator, rigid tapping, top splash cover, and full headstock enclosure.
