Modern aircraft construction places special demands on machine tools, particularly in the field of dynamics and material removal rates. Schiess points out that it has been developing machines for the aerospace industry for 25 years. The Verti-Master Aero 25 is a CNC vertical milling machine based on a modular design, which can be combined in various working areas with different milling heads and control systems. The standardized widths of 2, 2.5 and 3 meters can reportedly be combined with any length in steps of 1 meter. The direct-driven two-axis UB-MS 20 head achieves 60 kW (S1) or 80 kW (S6) with a speed of 24,000 rpm and a weight of only 560 kg. Together with an acceleration of 5 m/s2 in all axes, the result is said to be the kind of machine required for aerospace engineering with high dynamics and a high material removal rate.
