This axis is programmable independently from the other axis in its" Z path. It allows the 5 axis machine to perform heavy 3 axis machining, for example in tool making to use the machine for the machining of models or to clamp a sawblade for the milling of bath tubs.
A trimming spindle GEISS ER 16 is fitted to the axis. Alternatively, all spindles and cutting knives can be fitted as stated under Option 5).
When fitting this additional vertical axis, the working path of the X axis is reduced by 500mm as the additional axis requires this space. If necessary, request a machine Quotation No. with an increased X-axis size by 500 mm.
