This heavy-duty machine was designed for small to large capacity machine work. The spindle diameter is 3.25" (82.5mm) for extra heavy duty machining up to 9" (230mm) bore size. Large sleeve cuts can be taken at high spindle RPMs, and in many blocks, one pass sleeve cuts are possible to increase productivity. Programmable counterboring operations eliminate guesswork and provides added timesaving. The massive one piece meehanite, stress relieved, precision machined base casting allows the fixturing of large diesel blocks such as Cummins 855, Detroit 12V71, Mercedes 444V12 and odd jobs such as gear cases and connecting rods. The FA machines can also handle small jobs down to 1.5" (38mm) bore diameter with optional cutterheads.
