Show Highlight

This year many companies exhibit their premieres.  

Lipetsk Machine Tool Plant presents a new LSHK80150 knee-type surface grinding machine. This unique machine is designed for grinding of large workpieces with high precision which was previously possible only using piano-type surface grinding machines.

Delta-Test presents the ARTA C63 machine having the design of a piercing machine with application of a precision spherical bench developed by the company which provides the opportunities of processing previously unavailable shapes of products and an advanced technology of micro erosion 3D milling.

Dmitrov Milling Machine Plant puts on display the 6DM80SHF1 universal milling machine with a rotatable head and DRO. The machine can be used for milling, drilling, hole enlarging and boring of parts made of all metals and alloys as well as of different plastics in single-unit, small-scale, and large-scale production.

Sasta shows a new CNC lathe NT 500 designed for turning of complex-shaped components, processing of smooth and thread holes (end out-of-line and radial), milling of radial, end, straight-line and cam slots and patches.  Note that parts can be made of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and high alloy steels.

Balt-System shows its flagship model NC-400 which is a modern device with a convenient updated window-based interface and intended to address all tasks in machine building or automation of new production.
