    Machine Tool Division
    Machinery, Equipment & Infrastructure

    High value-added machining of large workpieces, e.g., higher-efficiency production and higher-accuracy machining, has become increasingly needed in recent years in many industrial fields where large pieces of machinery such as power generation equipment, industrial machines and construction machines are produced. This paper presents the MAF-C series of floor-type horizontal boring mills with the world's highest-in-class performance. To meet these customer needs, the MAF-C series realizes high productivity through the improvement of its machining capacity and rapid traverse speed, while attaining higher accuracy due to the new perfect balancing system that was developed.
