SuperSeries launch

Cincinnati Milacron is launching the Dart, Hawk, Lancer and Viking SuperSeries ranges at the EMO ’97 show in Hanover (10-17 September).

The Dart is a low-cost vertical CNC machining centre, said by Cincinnati to be at a price comparable to manual milling machines or secondhand CNC verticals, while the Hawk is a CNC lathe offering increased rigidity, minimal vibration and better management of swarf. Both machines are operated through the PC-based A1200 Acramatic or the Fanuc 21I controllers.

The Lancer vertical milling machine is for the heavy-duty market, with a three-tonne capacity and the capability to machine tough ferrous and alloyed components.

The Viking SuperSeries is a centreless CNC grinder, compatible with the full range of grinding wheel media. Cincinnati claims the Viking maximises productivity through its fast setup and changeover times and range of applications.
