CNC Turning Centre - ACE Supper JOBBER

CNC turning centers replace certain conventional machine tools. They replace a lathe. You probably know what a lathe is and/or have seen one in use. If so, you know that the primary function is to remove material from a rotating work piece with a relatively stationary cutting tool.
The cost of this CNC Turning Centre is Rs.26, 00,000/-

 

 

CNC Vertical Machining Centre (VMC) - YCM EV1020A

 

A Vertical Machining Center (VMC) is a machining center with its spindle in a vertical orientation. High-end VMCs are high-precision machines often used for tight-tolerance milling, such as fine die and mold work. In particular, we have

 

  • Injection Mold
  • Plastic Mold
  • Rubber Mold
  • 3D Mold
  • Press Tools
  • Fixtures
  • Pattern Mold
