Three models have been introduced in the BM-35 series of milling machines, which have been redesigned with the milling rotors in the rear. The lineup includes models BM 1000-35, 1200-35 and 1300-35. Cutting tool life has been extended by minimizing tool replacement labor (see video). The cutting system uses a single bolt for holder retention and requires 75 lb.-ft. of tightening torque. Low front face position increases efficiency and overall milling power, the company says, while allowing full-tooth rotation.
The series also has a remodeled operator station, which has a vibration-isolated stand with swivel seat that allows all work to be done while seated. Straight forward switches, levers and clear read out displays enhance ergonomics.
