Cincinnati Machine (Hebron, Ky.) announced that it has expanded its HyperMach Series of High Rail Linear Motor Profilers by adding a drilling and trimming router platform. The new machine reportedly meets the accuracy and high-speed processing demands of composites and is suitable for use on other materials, including metallic and nonmetallic honeycomb and aluminum. The company currently offers two platforms, a single 5-axis head plate mill for aggressive cutting of large aluminum and a twin, independent 5-axis head with a dual-work-zone machining system, which offers the same cutting capability with the added flexibility of large-capacity automatic tool changers.
