Multifunctional horizontal machining center

The MultiCenter presents itself as multifunctional machining center with different options. Beside the option as pure turning machine it can also be configured as turning-milling center. Due to its remarkable flexibility the MultiCenter is used in different industrial sectors. Amongst others in precision technology, aerospace, mechanical engineering, medical engineering and many other industrial sectors. The basic machine of the MultiCenter impresses with a horizontal spindle arrangement and a compact design. The machine column made of high-quality grey cast iron, strongly ribbed and with extraordinary stiffness, offers optimum damping characteristics. The design of the working area walls guarantees an efficient removal of chips. The spacious working area door enables a simple scaffolding and resetting, as well as quick changes of chucks and tools.

The MultiCenter-machine is characterized by outstanding quality and generates surfaces of highest excellence. It guarantees maximum precision and process reliability. In addition it disposes of excellent vibration damping and extraordinary flexibility to meet the requirements of sophisticated tasks. The option of the integrated loading- and unloading handling function in the MultiCenter enables the approaching of both spindle noses by means of NC-axes. Workpieces can be picked-up from the main spindle as well as from the counter spindle by means of individual grippers.

  • Small depth of engagement and easy setting-up: With a depth of engagement of only 455 mm between machine front and spindle axis the setting-up is simplified.
  • Big field of tool application: the MultiCenter is designed for big tools up to max. 330 mm.
  • Efficient automation: The seamless integration of loading-and unloading handling in the machine area is optional and creates a high degree of automation at low cost.
  • Ergonomic operation: The optional swivel-type operator panel which is height-adjustable up to 240 mm offers a comfortable and ergonomic operation.
  • Customizable chip removal: The flexible option of the chip conveyor arrangement (right or left) optimizes the space requirement and the work environment.
  • Easy maintenance: The chip conveyor can be pulled laterally and from the front, this facilitates maintenance and cleaning and reduces downtimes.
  • Efficient tool changer: Available with tool capacities of either 47 or 102 tools.
  • Main spindle: optionally available with A6- or A8-flange.
  • Flexible options: You can choose between LMD-head, turret or milling spindle.
  • Counter spindle: Decide on a counter spindle with A6- or A8-flange or a NC-tailstock with MIK5.
  • Customizable turret equipment: You can choose optionally between tool direct drive, rotational turning function or steadyrest for the turret.

Bar loader: Optimum bar loading by minimum distance between main spindle and machine guard.

Gantry loading: Optimally suitable for the seamless interlinking with other machines.

Robot cells: Efficient loading of offcuts by use of pallets or magazines.

Internal loading- / unloading handling: Different deposit-resp. pick-up possibilities as prism chain conveyor or drawer possible.

Chip conveyor: Customizable chip discharge to the right or left to adapt optimally to the automation solutions or local conditions.

Rotational turning
With the rotation turning process developed and patented by WEISSER, precisely machined surfaces can be generated with twist-free finishing precision and thus replace the expensive grinding operations. The simultaneous rotation of workpiece and tool cutting edge reduces the machining time by up to 77 % compared with hard turning.


Gear cutting (hobbing)
Integration of a hobbing module, being the only method to manufacture internal and external gearings with different helix angles and directions in a single machining center. This manufacturing process combines hobbing and slotting by continuous hobbing with maximum feed rate.
