Cycle time reduction is generally 40% over multi spindle machines – per part


Vertical machining centre with moving gantry RigiMill MG by MODIG

RigiMill Moving Gantry (MG) was developed to produce the fastest chip removal rates in the world.

Most-rigid compact gantry. Single spindle high speed gantry.

“RigiMill MG is the best manufacturing platform in the world for long part production machining!”


In 2019 Gardner Aerospace invested in the RigiMill long-bed machine tool to increase the speed, accuracy and automation of its aluminium and titanium long-bed processes, reducing cycle times by up to 50 percent. 

The Modig RigiMill is equipped with the world’s largest pallet system (three pallets) and also holds the world record in chip removal (1,001 cubic inch/min.)

In Aviation Pros magazine Dominic Cartwright, CEO, Gardner Aerospace, was quoted as saying: “Investing in industry-leading equipment like the Modig RigiMill enables us to provide aerospace OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers with high-quality, best-cost materials and parts, with maximum efficiency."
