DMG Mori's NXT 3000Click image to enlargeThe NTX 3000 compact turning-milling machine from DMG Mori now has the compactMASTER Turn & Mill spindle, providing maximum productivity when machining large workpieces with a footprint of just 16.5 square metres.


Designed for bar diameters of 102 mm, it’s capable of machining the most complex of components with a torque of up to 1,194 Nm. The decisive core component here is the B-axis with the company's in-house compactMASTER spindle for demanding 5-axis machining with up to 122 Nm. The main spindle extends the performance into the realm of 6-sided heavy-duty machining in the aerospace industry, the automotive sector and medical engineering.


A robust machine bed combined with stable roller guides and cooling systems in the spindles and ball screw drives optimize performance while maintaining stable temperatures for continuous 5 axis machining.


A the second BMT turret with driven tools also has a Y-axis (+/-40 mm). The toolSTAR tool magazine has 38 stations, but can be expanded to up to 114 pockets for short setup times.Its integral tool measurement and tool breakage monitoring system and tool measurement in the work area ensure efficient machining.


Equipped with the Celos app-based control and user interface and a 21-in. multi-touch display, consistent management, documentation and planning of job orders in production engineering and in the workshop is possible.
