The Fryer TC-V Series features a fixed table and traveling column for flexibility with large parts and fixturing. You can use the machine as a multi-pallet design by using the table dividers to create work zones. The fixed table allows table loads of more than 10,000 lbs. and is available with a built in rotary table. The high torque 40 and 50 taper spindles feature available CTS and gearbox. Available Y axis travel of 24″ or 32″ and in sizes ranging from 40″ X travel all the way to a huge 320″ travel machine.

The Fryer – Siemens Touch 2200 CNC provides world class technology and ultra-advanced features in an intuitive user interface. This state of the art platform provides the ultimate for 5 axis, high speed machining, horizontal machine and turning applications alike. Fast set-up cycles, one button hot keys and built in probe cycles speed the set-up process. Shop floor programming, G code programming, large program storage and Ethernet connectivity speed the programming process. 3D solid model graphic verification, handwheel run and easy interrupt speed the first article process.

  • One touch set-up cycles
  • Shop floor programming system
  • G code programming editor
  • Advanced graphic simulation


  • Advanced Digital Control System
  • Regenerative drive technology (saves 40% electric)
  • Absolute encoders – no homing needed
  • High accuracy contouring and surfacing

Tool Management
The tool management page stores your tool information in a graphical format. In addition, tools can be given tool numbers or actual names like .500 drill or .375 CBD end mill. Each tool can be managed for wear and switched automatically when the tool run time is reached.

Probe Cycles
The standard part probe cycles use a simple GUI to make part set-up simple. The cycles include edge find, part skew, pocket, boss and many more. The cycles can also be used to measure the part and display dimensions on the screen, much like a CMM.

High Speed Machining Options
The High-Speed Machining option lets you select 3 settings for the velocity, accuracy or surface quality to produce the work-piece at extremely high speed. Includes 500 block look ahead and 1 millisecond block processing.

3D Graphic Simulation
After the part is programmed it can be simulated to show the operations and tool paths. Simulation will also work with programs brought in from a CAM system that were output in G code. Cycle time is displayed also.
