New concepts in high-speed machining offer drastic improvements in speed, rigidity and durability over competing machines. Our HM series offers the fastest and most powerful machines in their class, while providing easy access, maintenance and operation. The HMC500 comes fully loaded with features for incredibly fast cycle times. Achieving 20% faster rapid and acceleration than our phenomenally fast HM500S machine, the HMC500 is constructed with a lightweight column featuring a rigid stepped X axis rail design. This column enables a rapid feed rate of 63 meters per minute, 2480 inches per minute, with acceleration of 1G.
