Okay, originally I thought it was one of those systems that can be easily expanded like the Makino DA300. The sales wasn’t sure, made a few calls and said in theory it’s doable but will cost more at later date.
Point taken, if it wasn’t designed to be integrated in such a manner, would be folly for me to insist. I’ll ask the sales to quote the rotary tool matrix.
Any insight on 120,170,215 tools? Any pitfalls that come to mind I should be aware off?
I also noticed on paper the machine looks decent in terms of floor space. But it does seem to sprawl a little bit with the various chillers, TSC units and what not. Are the position of these slightly flexible or pre-determined? Real estate is insane where I’m located and everything counts. For context the floor space the Mazak HMC sits on is worth half the price of the machine itself.

yeah the base machine normally comes with 60 tool carousel which has to be removed for the tool tower to work, hence why integration after the fact is cost prohibitive. no pitfalls that i'm aware of on the towers, just depends on how many tools you think you'll need.
chillers and other accessories come with pretty long hoses so you can configure them however suits your shop space best.
