Ann Arbor, Michigan – Provided by German Machine Tools of America (GMTA), Samag multi-spindle horizontal machining centers are used primarily for high-volume parts, now offered to the automotive powertrain, truck, off-highway, and other markets.

Samag, based in Saalfeld, Germany, engineers and builds a variety of multi-spindle machines, the MFZ Series for high volume cubic work pieces.

The company supplies complete turnkey solution, including tooling, workholding, robotic articulation, parts handlers, and transfer mechanisms for high-production work such as knuckles, engine blocks, gear boxes, valves, and connecting rods.

The X Y Z axes of the 2-spindle machine can be corrected independently of one another. Four sizes and two types of drive offer options for high-speed machining and heavy-duty cutting. The number of spindles, the variable distance between them, and the extendable tool magazine allow the machining of diverse workpiece dimensions and capacities.

All models are available with a linear or ball screw drive and up to 4 working spindles. 5-axis simultaneous machining, and a workpiece feed during primary processing time is possible. The rock-solid machine bed, filled with Hydropol, is thermally stable and impresses with its excellent damping abilities. Users benefit from productivity increase, flexibility, precision and energy-efficiency.
