"We built several custom engineered machines with similar configurations and attributes; it made sense for us to add the HU100XLL to our standard product line," said Thomas Dolan, Mitsui's vice president of marketing and sales. "The custom engineered machines were supplied to primarily aerospace, power generation, refrigeration, and mould and die parts manufacturers as all of these industries have fundamental common requirements for machine rigidity and stiffness for low frequency machining and high accuracy.”

The HU100A-5XLL offers an X, Y, Z working envelope of 2500 mm x 1750 mm x 1400 mm (98.4 in x 68.9 in x 55.1 in). The A and B tilting and rotating trunnion table axes represent the 4th and 5th axes of motion. The standard spindle offering is a 50 taper, although many manufacturers taking extra heavy roughing cuts in titanium and tough steels could opt for the HSK 100 or HSK 125 spindle with extra high torque - 3332Nm (2457 lb.-ft.). The FMS-ready machine has a pallet size of 1700mm x 1000mm (66.9 in x 39.4 in) and accommodates weight up to 3000kg (6600 lbs). The automatic toolchanger accommodates 360 tools with lengths up to 500mm (19.6 in), diameters to 305mm (12 in), and weights of 30kg (66 lbs).
