MX5 Linear: Quality has just become more affordable

Designed with volume producers in mind, the MX5 Linear has the flexibility to manufacture mixed batches. The MX5 Linear includes the most important features of the premium MX platform, such as the bi-symmetrical gantry which supports the grinding wheel and spindle. Evenly straddling the tool centre line, the gantry provides extra rigidity for consistently accurate tools.

MX Linear

  • Product Details
    The MX Linear range is specifically designed to meet the needs of tool production facilities seeking maximum output while remaining flexible to customer requirements. The machines include new technology linear motors that enable them to achieve even higher levels of accuracy and performance.
    Small machine footprint with a large working envelope. It has minimal axis movements during grinding which reduces cycle times.
    RoboMate for high volume tool production or FastLoad-MX for low-volume.
    2-station wheel changer included as standard for MX5 and a 6-station for MX7. Loads wheel packs and coolant manifolds for maximum productivity.
