*Availability of machines is based on region. Contact your local Methods office to learn more.

Ideal for Turbine Blades and More. Finish complicated undercut root work piece in one holding with the swivel B-axis. The VM-X53R/250B has no Backlash due to a B-axis swivel spindle head driven by a roller gear and A-axis direct drive rotary table.

The VM/R series increased rigidity of the main body and the spindle to provide even higher cutting performance. Its feed axes utilize highly rigid and accurate box-ways like conventional machines. This enables machining of not only general parts but also parts made of difficult-to-cut materials such as titanium. The main body design delivers heavy and accurate machining in an ergonomic friendly design.
