The AMERICAN BRIDGEMILL is the most versatile cnc milling machine combined with a cnc lathe in one compact package.  The BRIDGEMILL can operate in a wide variety of environments, from CNC engraving or as a CNC router to much heavier jobs such as milling aluminum, steel and many other materials. With the CNC rotary table you can cut gears, splines and other complex 4 axis projects.

The mill can do CNC tapping and thread milling as well as all the standard milling functions and has full manual functions along with CNC controls.  The lathe can do boring, turning and taper turning as well as threading of all inch, metric right or left hand.  The CNC toolpost in conjunction with the standard AXA quickchange toolpost gives you a full range of gang tooling options.
