The Variaxis i-300 simultaneous 5-axis vertical machining center, designed for automated small- to medium-size part-processing operations, offers more flexibility and efficiency with the high- capacity auto work changer (AWC).

The machine comes standard with a multiple drum tool storage system for up to 145 tools, while the 32 position AWC accommodates workpieces up to 13.779" in diameter, 12.401" high, and weighing up to 135 lb. This combination permits continuous unmanned operation and single-setup processing. Shops can expand the AWC and tool storage capacities to 40 positions and 505 tools.

While boosting this large capacity, the machine has a significantly smaller footprint due to its stacking 30-tool drum magazines.
