The material being processed remains stationary on the cutting table while the cutting head moves along the X, Y and Z axes. This high-precision three-axis drive system consists of a recirculating bearing screw on the Z axis with two helical rack and pinion drives, high-speed pinion on the X and Y axes. The result is faster workpiece machining with a quieter and smoother drive system. In combination with the guideways, the accuracy of movement and positioning speeds offer outstanding performance.
