|New press release in Manufacturing News about Fryer's update to our MB Series line of Toolroom bed mills
Designed by toolmakers for tool makers, the MB mill is by far the easiest mill to use in its class. Full manual operation allows anyone in the shop to use the machine with little to no training. In addition, the machine features Do One cycles that allow you to automatically mill, pocket, drill and tap, one step at a time. Manual operations and semi-automatic operations can be mixed to speed through one-piece production.
