HPM – Mortise and Pilot Drilling Machine

The HPM machine has CNC controlled spindles for mortising and drilling. This machine is equipped with multiple heads on individual carriages, which allows for a wider range of machining on a single part without re-positioning or changing the tooling. The HPM machine is ideally suited for machining face frames, style & rail components, slot mortising and routing. With the two zone independent programming you can simultaneously run two different jobs at the same time.
