July 30, 2013

MAG has introduced the new twin-spindle Specht 450 Duo for small-engine and parts production applications.

The machining center, requiring 120.56 sq. ft. of floor space and featuring a spindle distance of 21.26 in., is the smallest twin-spindle machine manufactured by the company. It is designed for machining of midsized workpieces such as cylinder heads and gear housings.

Features include precise glass scales, integrated tool monitoring, cone cleaning, and a zero-point clamping system. It delivers a chip-to-chip time of less than 2.5 sec. and a tool change time of less than 1 sec. It uses a combination of a chain magazine and two disc magazines. Proprietary tool management software helps minimize idle times.
