Mouldmaker chooses bridge-type machining centre

Mouldmaker chooses bridge-type machining centre
As precision mould manufacturer and injection moulding specialist BM Injection was looking to replace an ageing, 3-axis, vertical-spindle machining centre of C-frame design back in the autumn of 2016, the company had three main requirements for the new machine. It needed to be of bridge construction for improved rigidity and have a nominal one-metre X-axis to provide extra capacity. It also had to be able to compensate for fluctuations in temperature on the shop floor.
