Manufactured by Litz Hitech Corp., the MV 1600H 3-axis vertical machining center (VMC) combines durable construction, a rigid boxway Z-axis, and linear guideways on the X- and Y-axis.

Rapid rates are 36m/min on the X- and Y-axis and 24m/min on the Z-axis.

The work area spans 63.0" x 31.5" while the table has a capacity of 3,300 lb and measures 66.9" x 33.5". Weighing 41,800 lb, the VMC has a heavy-cast construction, dampening reverberations to deliver greater precision and improve surface finishing.

Standard features include a 40-tool automatic tool changer (ATC) that handles large tools. Comprehensive chip management includes an external chip conveyor, chip flush in the bed, spindle flush, and an extra coolant gun.

The Fanuc 0i-MF control comes with a 200-block look-ahead and Manual Guide i software preinstalled.
