Heavy-duty milling of structural parts in tough materials

Jobs TARKUS 2.0 is a double-column milling centre with moving table specifically designed to offer end-users in aerospace, heavy engineering and mould and die sectors excellent productivity in all machining stages from 3- to 5-axis roughing to finishing operations on structural components made of particularly tough materials such as titanium, Inconel, stainless steel and HRSA alloys.

TARKUS 2.0 is therefore able to ensure high quality machining at very competitive operating costs for a quick return on investment. All machine structures are made of cast iron in order to enhance their dampening characteristics. In particular, the machine crossbeam moves entirely vertically with the acceleration and speed of a conventional axis but with much greater rigidity than machines with a vertical ram and providing constant accuracy throughout the whole working volume.

TARKUS 2.0 features a full compact and ergonomic safety cabin with large windows that provide an easy view of cutting operations. The top cover fitted with vapor suction units, permits to contain chips during machining and facilitates deflection into the chip evacuation system, while its automatic opening allows part loading/unloading.
