Equipped With

Northwood MC-158 Iron Horse CNC Machining Center with One (1) Spindle and Thirty Two (32) Static Tool Pockets

FEA (Finite Element Analysis) Design engineering process utilized in entire machine design insuring maximum reliability.
The machine construction consists of a tubular steel weldment skirted with steel plating and cast- iron drive components for maximum rigidity allowing for superior machining performance.
All machine components are heat-treated (normalizing) or vibratory stress relieved.
One-piece heavy steel, moving bridge is reinforced by vertical and horizontal 4” diameter stiffeners. The bridge spans the machining centers fixed worktable.
The “Iron Horse” series Northwood Machining Centers with their extremely heavy-duty construction throughout insure machine stability, accuracy and superior longevity.

Head Configuration
One (1) Fanuc Alpha-18, 25HP - S1 Motor “Air Cooled” Programmable Spindle Drive unit, 8,000 RPM, 4 Pole, Spindle with ISO #40 Taper Chuck, “three front and two back bearings, a safety device for automatic fault detection, and a maximum tool shank diameter of 1 1/8". Internal components all cronidur 30 stainless steel that have been inductive heat treated.
One (1) Through the Tool Spindle 10 Micron Filtering Required. Rigged Tapping (Standard)
• One (1) through the spindle coolant “80 PSI” capacity with programmable splash guarding.
• ISO #40 Taper “Thirty-Two (32) Station” Tool Rack.
