Machining center / BA W08

For machining of workpieces made of Aluminium and non-magnetic raw material.

Brand new, extremely fast, and future-oriented. Do you still produce large, light metal workpieces such as 8-speed gearbox housings on single-spindle machines? That era is over. The market is progressing and SW is thinking ahead. How about doubling your production in the same amount of time? The twin horizontal spindle BA W08-22 makes it possible. The expanded working area (800 x 900 x 650 mm) provides more space – ideal for even the largest of workpieces.

Direct drive technology in all axes provides optimum acceleration and speed (up to 2 g and 120 m/min). Two independent X- and Z-axes increase flexibility and accuracy. The monobloc design, the double swivel carrier, and in-cycle workpiece loading are proven SW standards also implemented into the W08. 4- and 5-axis machining can both be performed with ease. It is unlike anything seen before; an unparalleled unit on the market. The new BA W08-22 – a machining center that takes you further.
