    Hello

    As far I know, tool changer is the fundamental difference!

    Correct me if I’m wrong.

    The “W” has a “sliding” head from vertical to horizontal machining.
    The “S” has an automatic “swivel” head, often together with a C-axis in vertical circular table construction.

    Information is to the best of my knowledge!

    I’ve never seen 1600th with a sliding head. I believe it’s not ergonomic because of head weight and encapsulation…

    For this reason:
    1600 W = fixed table + swivel head
    1600 S = circular table + swivel head

    I saw 1600W in November 08 in Austria. Any more questions?
    And the sliding head is even automatic, if not program-controlled. I hope picture attachment works.

    No questions. Because it’s not a sliding head in the picture, but a swivel head. The vertical head rotates automatically up with its turning axis sitting on 45°, so that the horizontal head is uncovered. In case of machines with tool change it’s changed in both axes.
    A covering cup is set on the spindle during head rotation.
    Why do I know this? Because we have three of those machines
