Though the T500 has kept the same specifications as the earlier models -- including the ability to process convex, concave and random-shaped pieces -- its cosmetics were enhanced through the addition of a well-designed head enclosure.
The main characteristics of the T500 are a new cast iron bridge and framework, a simplified spindle head, increased vertical stroke (300 mm vs. 250 mm on preceding models), a new user-friendly console, substitution of linear rails instead of the former sleeve bearings and a width of 2220 mm, which allows for 5 type BS6 heads (instead of 4) in the magazine.
Options available include 3170 mm width, which allows for a 6-head magazine, plus 3 magazines of 5 heads each.
