Cast iron machine tool bodies have been around since the beginning, however, due to environmental concerns the world over, foundries are being closed leaving a gap in the supply chain. Each casting would also need to undergo natural and assisted stress relief adding extra costs and lead times. Rapid improvements to these are also virtually impossible, hence the castings have not evolved since they were initially released 18 years ago.
In line with some of the most prestigious machine tool builders around the globe Syil is introducing their first ever Mineral Casting range of machines! Beginning 2020 we will start shipping high spec Epoxy granite machines with the regional partners receiving X7 Combo demo machines. By March 2020 the first units will be arriving in customer sites the world over.
