CNC Machining - Our Competences in Brief

CNC milling

Our 3-axis and 5-axis CNC milling machines form the core of the department. Their high level of precision and flexibility allow us to handle complex components in aluminium and magnesium where the customers have very high demands for tolerances, surface finish, etc.

Our primary production consists of small to medium-sized quantities. Our machines are connected to MasterCam where all programs are made. The most recent investments have been made in automation, such as pallet exchanger, robot solutions and large tool hoppers. This allows us to run many unmanned hours.


CNC turning

This department consists of 3 Gildemeister lathes with Heidenhein Plus IT control and 1 Mazak multitasking machine. Jobs can be moved fluently between the machines as they are all connected to MasterCam where all programs are made. This minimises the risk of errors and reduces setup times for new and repeat orders.

The 3 Gildemeister machines have rotating tools and one machine also has a Y-axis. Mazak Integrex has a full 5-axis head and a large tool hopper. The machines allow items up to Ø650mm in all materials.


CNC Post-Machining of Castings

We have many years of experience in Post-Machining of cast components in aluminium and magnesium. We mainly finish prototypes and small series. Our setup for finishing cast items has been optimised for this.

To ensure the best possible result, all of our precision machines are fitted with probes to allow probing of all cast items to find the best fit before initiating the CNC machining process.


Measuring and documentation

After CNC machining, we can measure and document the components to ensure they meet the highest quality standards
