Tool spindles

HIGH-TECH TOOL SPINDLES WITH COLLISION PROTECTION

The slimline tool spindles are constructed in two parts and can be replaced easily and quickly during servicing. Thanks to low interfering edges and collision protection by compression sleeves, safety is given primary importance by maximum collision avoidance. Damage can be prevented in 50 % of collisions.

Automatic cabin door, automation packages, BDE-signal, emulsion mist extraction system, precision packages, height-adjustable control panel, chip conveyor, coolant nozzle and chip cart, tool breakage monitoring and measurement, additional magazines …

Energy Efficiency

IN MANUFACTURING AND OPERATION

Hermle manufactures many components using lightweight construction and mineral casting technology. The high degree of own production, local suppliers and components with high efficiency factors also promote energy efficiency. Energy recuperation, high-quality servo drives and the legendary long service lives are all proof of the same high standards during actual operation.

Control

HEIDENHAIN TNC 640

The control unit provides for free contour programming and functions for fast 3D work as well as a trackball, USB and Ethernet interfaces. Options such as Dynamic Efficiency, Dynamic Precision or the Kinematic Opt. software also serve to widen the range of functions. Exact setup and control elements from Hermle simplify and improve operation.

Tool changer

TOOL CHANGER

The pick-up tool magazine of the C 12 is integrated into the machine bed, making for very good accessibility. There are 36 pockets in the ring magazine, as well as the option for 35 more on a second level in the ZM 35 additional magazine. The maximum tool weight is 8 kg and the maximum tool length is 200 mm.

Automation

ROBOT SYSTEM, PALLET CHANGER AND HANDLING SYSTEM

The C 12 compact machining centre, entry-level model in the Hermle High-Performance Line, already comes with a high level of automation. For instance, the RS 05 robot system, the HS flex and the PW 100 pallet changer can all be connected to it. If required, the HACS (‘Hermle Automation Control System’) and the HIMS (‘Hermle Information Management System’) can be used for easier operation.

Details

EVERYTHING WELL THOUGHT-THROUGH

From the comprehensive fluid technology to the optimized chip management system and a range of cooling lubricant units: The entry-level model of the High-Performance Line has a number of highlights to offer, e.g. the right chip disposal equipment for removing all types of chip from the working area. The especially compact and space-saving machining centre can be transported without being dismantled and set up without a foundation.
