A CNC machine tool that combines the best qualities of the CNC Router and the CNC Mill, deserves it's own unique classification.  So, what's a suitable name for this group of machines?  Since it's More than a mill, certainly not just a router, and doesn't fit into any existing machine categories or descriptions; the Hybrid Mill creates a class all it's own.    

It would be understating the Hybrid Mill to classify it as just an Elite CNC Router.  To start with, the Hybrid Mill boasts a much larger frame, wider bearing spacing, heavier components, and tighter tolerances than are found on even the most "elite" CNC Routers.  Unlike Routers, the Hybrid Mill also comes fully enclosed and ready for wet, dry, mist, or MQL machining with options for flood coolant either around the tool, or through the tool.  Like the Hybrid Mill, Routers boast flexible and innovative universal vacuum part holding methods, quick set-ups & tear-downs, and very attractive pricing.  A Hybrid Mill also has options for t-slot tables, custom bolt patterns, or steel tables.  So, it delivers the part holding flexibility as a router, but with the increased table load-bearing capability required for larger and heavier work-pieces & tooling.  With up to twin 33HP spindles, twin 24 position HSK-63A dual arm rapid changers available, and a frame engineered to be large enough & rigid enough to handle it all; a Hybrid Mill far exceeds the capabilities of routers.

But, just calling this machine a Mill, doesn't give you an accurate expectation of its flexibility & capabilities.  Mills typically have many limitations that by design, a Hybrid Mill doesn't.  Hybrid Mills aren't limited by small table sizes & restricted work envelopes.  Twin tables with pendulum processing for 100% spindle utilization are standard.  Plus, the smallest table sizes offered on a Hybrid Mill are over 5 feet by 8 feet with over 3 feet of Z clearance.  This provides a standard work envelope that's larger than what would be optional on all but the most expensive of high end milling machines.  Mills are often characterized by their high torque, low RPM spindles and their highly accurate but sometimes slow feed rates.  Hybrid Mills provide the High Torque necessary for machining all non-ferrous materials, advanced composites, & many ferrous metals, but without sacrificing the high RPM that are sometimes necessary for High Speed machining of aluminums, fiber reinforced plastics, PVC, carbon fiber, graphite, a-cell, phenolic, and many more materials.  Wet or dry machining of composites, ferrous, and non-ferrous materials has never been easier, faster, or more cost effective.
