Simple and effective: DirectDiscTechnology

DirectDiscTechnology ensures that blanks can be clamped quickly and without tools – allowing them to be processed directly.

Just clear water required

For wet machining, the R5 grinds and mills with clear water which you just have to fill into the integrated water tank. For all materials, except titanium, without any additives – better for your materials and without annoying disposal.

Maximum freedom regarding materials and sizes

Another highlight is the ability to process milling blanks up to 40 mm thick. Perhaps even more important is the generous tilt angle of ± 35 degrees for the spindle axis. The R5 thereby guarantees a maximum of indication variety and provides high freedom of design.
