Grob G550 available from DiPaolo Machine ToolsClick image to enlarge

The G series five axis universal machining centre from Grob encompasses three models: G350, G550 and G750 (there are also two turning versions G550T and G750T). 

The machines typically travel at 2,560, 1.650 and 3,540 ipm in the X, Y and Z axes respectively. The horizontal five axis concept means that even with the longest tool in the spindle, the maximum component size can be swung and processed collison free, according to the company.

Three linear and two rotary axes allow for five sided and five axis simultaneous machining. The machine is designed with a large swivel range in teh Ax axis of 225° of rotation. It has an axis speed of 80 m/min and an acceleration of 8 m/s2.
