ETHOS K: the new entry in Cms' mobile gantry range


With over 50 years of business and thousands of CNC machines working in the Advanced Materials division (Marine Industry, Aeronautics, Automotive, F1&Motor sports, Defence…), CMS’ CNC machining centers with mobile Gantry, account for the widest choice of modular configurations available on the market.

Conceptualized from CMS’ experience and collaboration with our most demanding customers, the ETHOS K was designed for percision removal of aluminium and composites, that requires very high accuracy.
