Climax Portable Machine Tools has a new on-site milling machine, the LM6000, which is the largest machine of its type the company has developed. The new machine is aimed at repair applications involving milling of critical mounting surfaces. The new tool’s rigid bed is designed to minimize sag and twisting, and it can work under both conventional conditions and in overhead operations. A heavy-duty spindle allows metal removal rates of up to 7 cubic inches per minute with an 8-inch-diameter cutter and a 25-hp hydraulic power unit.
