Ideal for machining multi-sided parts and those with complex geometry, Horizontal Machining Centers reduce labor cost-per-part by decreasing setup time and operator touches eliminating the need 
to move parts from one machine to another, and reducing the number of fixtures required. Giddings and Lewis HMCs also increase spindle availability so you can take on more work
