Its’ experience in the mould and die industry has helped it develop its range of gantry type machines and these are mostly manufactured by one subsidiary, Parpas Spa. These, as well as the large horizontal boring machines, are equipped with 5-axis capability, automatic attachment changers and several patents specific to controlling accuracy and thermal growth.

The Diamond Linear 30 is a gantry machining centre with 3, 4 or 5 axes for high speed mould/die machining. It features a monobloc structure using a moving gantry spindle carrier and a stationary workpiece. The Diamond 30 is available also in configuration "Linear", with linear motors three axes and torque motors on the rotary axes.

The Diamond is a gantry style 5-axis machining centre for the manufacture of moulds, dies and complex aerospace components. The fixed table and moving gantry design allows loads of up to 20 tons to be processed. High speed movement is achieved by the use of linear motor drives.
