Turning the machine world upside down with inverted machining

As the world’s first inverted machining centers, MODIG’s IM machine series sets new standards in productivity, precision, and speed by processing from below. This inspired innovation delivers outstanding machining performance by addressing two key areas: chip handling and stability.

It’s an eternal issue in machining – when chips aren’t efficiently cleared from the working area, productivity is impacted, surface quality is compromised, and safety risks can arise. By flipping the geometry, the IM range lets gravity take care of chip clearing, drastically reducing the need for production stoppages, and ultimately boosting throughput and productivity.

Through years of simulation and development, MODIG’s engineers have devised a stable inverted machining center with a cast iron base: this rigidity lets the tools work with absolute precision.

It’s a machining solution for industries that work with large volumes, quick lead times, and high complexity, so it’s especially well-suited to the aerospace, automotive, and firearms industries, as well as any other operation that demands optimal productivity and accuracy.
