2D CNC Machinery now offers the Swiss-built Reiden range of universal head, 5-axis machining centre, with these complementing the Toyoda Mitsui Seiki and MAP ranges of machines.

Says 2D CNC Machinery director David Holden: "The A- and B-axis universal head, rotary table design of the Swiss-built Reiden machine range extends our solution, providing capability in milling and boring with the flexibility provided by a multi-face approach to a component. "The universal head combines the advantage of a horizontal and vertical machining centre with totally simultaneous and integrated operational techniques that provide the most viable production method for certain applications." The Reiden range, available in three different styles of machine, has not been available in the UK before, but has seen many applications in aerospace, mould and die and specialist machining operations throughout Europe. The range comprises the RX10, the RX18 launched at EMO in Hanover, and the BFR, which has three variants the 22, 23 and 24. According to the machine type, working capacities are up to 4,000 mm in X, 1,200 mm in Y and 1,500 mm in Z. Table loads can be up to 11 tonnes, spindle power up to 187 kW, with speeds up to 24,000 rpm, and a torque is up to 1,576 Nm. All machines can be specified with either Heidenhain or Siemens controls.
