A composite steel machine bed provides maximum damping characteristics, in conjunction with a patent-pending guiding principle, says Gleason, give the Titan 1200H new levels of overall system stiffness. The machine's operator interface and software are based on a Siemens 840D SolutionLine control system for ease of use. The Titan 1200H's designers have also built in efficiency advantages by using the latest drive and motor technology and software that closely monitors and manages power consumption.
