The Specht 500/630 horizontal machining center from Mag provides linear-motor or ballscrew drives, CAT-40 through HSK-100 tool interfaces, six spindle options, four control options, and three five-axis configurations to suit needs ranging from one-off work in job shops to agile machining lines. Engineered around a box-in-box, moving-table design for low-inertia responsiveness, the U.S.-built machine delivers accuracies up to 4 µm (157 µin) with 260-N·m (192-ft·lb) full-torque cuts. It has a 1.8-m (6-ft) wide footprint and conserves energy with no warm-up, multistep sleep mode, regenerative drives, half the normal coolant requirements, and one-third the air-extraction needs. Its maintenance-friendly design shows Specht’s automotive industry lineage with front or rear spindle removal and a one-cabinet fluid-management center for grease, pneumatics, coolant, and hydraulics. The machine builds on five basic configurations with more than 100 options.
