A large-capacity ZAYER machine tool is one of the biggest machines Mills CNC has ever showcased at a MACH Show, and is set to stun visitors with its size, power, speed and versatility. 

Company is confident that the ZAYER XIOS G MT, a 6-axis multi-tasking machine with integrated turning capabilities, will pull in visitors looking for an innovative and exceptional large component machining solution at this year’s event.

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of DN Solutions’ and Zayer machine tools in the UK and Ireland, is exhibiting an advanced Zayer XIOS G MT 6-axis multi-tasking machine on its stand at MACH 2024 (HALL 19 – Stand 110).

The machine, one of 16 being showcased by Mills CNC, is making its UK debut at the event and will, according to company sources “not only prove to be a highlight of Mills’ stand but of the whole show itself.”

“The XIOS G MT is a big mill-turn machine. To appreciate its size – simply visit the Mills stand: you literally can’t miss it.”

Tony Dale, CEO of Mills CNC

The XIOS G MT is one in a range of Zayer multi-tasking bed mills now available from Mills CNC.

The machine on show at MACH 2024 has large X-, Y- and Z-axis travels (4000mm x 1600mm x 2000mm), and a sizeable worktable (2000mm x 2000mm) with a 12,000kg maximum table load that makes it ideal for machining big and heavy components for the aerospace, automotive, rail, energy, oil and gas sectors, as well as for large mould tool applications.

Machining flexibility is also ensured by the integration of a 1500mm x 1500mm built-in rotary table, a powerful 40kW/6000rpm spindle, a 5-axis/45-degree milling head and a generous -sized tool changer (up to 80 tools).

Despite its size, the XIOS G MT is fast and accurate boasting 35m/min rapids on its X-, Y- and Z-axes, and positional and repeatable accuracies of 0.008mm and 0.005mm respectively.

Although being showcased with a 45-degree head (360,000 positions), the machine can be supplied with different head configurations (i.e. 30-degree head or an electro-spindle 33kW/18,000rpm option) and a range of software apps (developed in-house by Zayer) to increase the machine’s potential and appeal.

“The Zayer XIOS G MT will, I am certain, prove popular with MACH show visitors and substantiates our out-of-this-world stand theme and concept.”
