DCA invests in new high speed 5-axis machining centre

Published on: 23rd June 2016

We are pleased to announce the arrival of our new Mikron HSM 200u 5-axis machining centre, with its integrated 20 station pallet changer. This extremely fast and precise machining centre was selected after a lengthy benchmarking and assessment process involving both DCA’s engineering and workshop staff.  

The Mikron HSM 200u has a 50,000 rpm temperature controlled spindle and linear feed rates of up to 42,000mm/min, direct motor drives on all 5 axes, polymer concrete base and cast iron sliding carriages.

It will allow us to produce precision machined parts even more quickly and to a very high surface finish that in almost all cases will be ready to use straight from the machine without further processing.
