GERMAN MACHINE TOOLS of AMERICA (GMTA) has begun to offer the full line of Samag machining centers in North America, including multi-spindle, horizontal machining centers, deep-hole drilling machines and combination milling/drilling machines. Samag, based in Saalfeld, Germany, engineers and builds a variety of multi-spindle machines, including the MFZ Series for large workpieces; the smaller, modular WBM Series for up to six spindle deep drilling; and the combination TFZ Series, which offers users the ability to bore and mill complex cubical workpieces on four sides with a single clamping.
On the largest standard machine, large-scale moldmaking is possible, with a maximum drilling depth of 2,300 mm (over 90 in.), 65 mm (over 2.5 in.) bore, and a 50-ton capacity work table.
Samag also supplies complete turnkey operations, including robotic articulation, parts handlers and transfer mechanisms for high-production work such as connecting rods and complete machining of differential housings.
“This new partner dramatically expands our capability in the large block milling market,” explained GMTA Vice President Scott Knoy. “Plus, with deep drilling technology and the combination machine concepts, we will be able to offer significant advantages to our current and potential customer base.” Learn more at www.gmtamerica.com
