Process: 5-Axis


The VARIAXIS i-800 N Vertical Machining Center has advanced multiple-surface, simultaneous machining capabilities with even more room for accurately processing large, heavy parts with complex profiled surfaces in single setups. For further part-production efficiency, this machine also features improved rapid traverse rates and reduced chip-to-chip tool change times, resulting in overall faster cycles and greater throughput.

Designed for easy integration with automation, the VARIAXIS i-800 N is available with an optional 2-pallet changer for unattended operations and off-cycle part setup. This simple, efficient form of automation allows operators to load, unload and inspect parts on one pallet while the machine works on the other undisturbed. The machine also easily integrates with our exclusive PALLETECH System, which can keep it running 24/7 without adding night or weekend shifts.


  • Handles parts up to 39.37" in diameter and 19.69" high.
  • Handles parts up to 31.5" in diameter and 19.69" high (with 2-pallet changer).
  • Advanced multiple-surface, simultaneous 5-axis capabilities.
  • 50-taper spindle with compact nose design increases Z-axis stroke.
  • Expanded axis strokes and rapid traverse rates for greater production efficiency.
  • Rotary/tilt table with roller gear cam technology eliminates backlash.
  • Tool storage capacities from 30 to 120 tools offer high flexibility.
  • Optional 2-pallet changer facilitates unattended machining.
  • Integrates with optional PALLETECH System for lights-out operations.
