Makino DA300: The precise 5-axis vertical machining centre delivering the same productivity as a horizontal machining centre.

Kirchheim unter Teck, September 2016. – Makino launches DA300 – the latest 5-axis vertical machining centre. The DA300 provides an ideal blend of speed, precision and flexibility for multi-axis complex workpieces in the smallest of machine footprints. Inspired by the best design characteristics from both vertical and horizontal machining centres, the DA300 combines the structural rigidity and accuracy of a vertical centre with the high produc-tivity and reliability of a horizontal centre, offering the best-of-both-worlds. It significantly reduces the part cycle times while achieving very accurate per-formance.
