Super Heavy-duty Construction
Major structural components have been combined into one solid platform. The low center of gravity 45° slant bed design provides the most rigid foundation possible for the headstock, turret, and tailstock.
By using Finite Element Methods ( FEM ), optimal reinforce ribbings are directly cast into the one-piece bed structure. Mechanical rigidity has been increased by more than 40% when compared to conventional designs. The GS-6000 series is capable of performing super heavy-duty turning and maintain long-term super high-precision accuracy. More rigidity also means extended tool life.
Built to endure years and years of rigorous high production turning, the heavily ribbed, one-piece thermally balanced bed and casting components are of FC35-Meehanite casting ( industry standard is FC25 ~ 30 ). FC35 grade cast iron is capable of withstanding much greater stress without deforming and provides maximum vibration damping, which result in a machine that will outlast and outperform the competition.
