Short description

Heavy CNC-machining centre with edgebanding aggregate, built by HOMAG in standing portal design.

Since the demand on processing ever smaller batch sizes also increased in industry in the late 1990s, HOMAG reacted by introducing a new series of machining centers. These were no longer designed as cantilever machines like the former machines of the BAZ series, but were standing portals with two movable tables each.


The BAZ 120 could be equipped with up to 2 independent aggregates supports (the BAZ 220 with up to 4). Since the aggregates supports each had their own drive in X, it was possible to use them in different modes:

  • Alternating processing with parallel production of two workpieces on one table
  • Completely separate production of 2 different parts on the two tables
  • Simultaneous processing of two large parts on the two tables
  • Processing of a large workpiece with coupled tables and alternating use of the aggregates support.

The BAZ 120 was available in two basic configurations: Power line and Genius, whereas the Powerline, with a maximum axis speed of 160 m/min and an acceleration of 10 m/s², had the double moving speed and even the triple axis acceleration in X. Instead of using the then common classifications

  • Power line
  • Profi line
  • Optimat

here, the term Genius for a CNC machining center was used, which had been used before in the 1990s.

2 machine table sizes were available:

  • 2.550 x 1.800 mm
  • 2.550 x 2.400 mm (dimensions for one table)

HOMAG offered the machine with 3 different tables:

  • Smooth table made of aluminum with freely positionable, tubeless suction cups
  • Smooth table with freely positionable suction cups with common tube connections for the vacuum
  • K-table

Furthermore, HOMAG offered customized production.
