Supermill

The Kira SuperMill 2M is designed specifically for single part and small series production milling of steel, non-ferrous, plastics and ceramics. The system provides the capability for true simultaneous 3-dimensional interpretation of structures.

It is part of the Nanoscale Machining Centre and provides 10nm precision on its dual spindles, a 50,000rpm main spindle and a 120,000rpm finishing spindle in a +/- 1 degree celsius temperature controlled environment.
