Introduction of Hermle HS Flex C400 automated machining cell boosts FGP response time to customer request.
This machine has been specified to best support our customers and our continuous drive to improve the service we provide.
The latest Heidenhain TNC640 touch screen control, 18,000rpm HSK63 spindle, 126 tool pockets, Renishaw spindle touch probe, laser tool set and break detect, mist extraction.
With the above married to the Hermle HS Flex system with 16 pallet storage (10 pallets at 500 x 500 and 6 pallets at 400 x 400), each pallet capable of 450kg loading capacity, it is proving to be a great investment in the continued development of FGP Systems capabilities now and looking to the future.
With a machine commission finish date of mid December 2018 the challenge was to have this machine operational for the Christmas period.
With the great support given from Kingsbury’s with both commissioning and machine operator training we are pleased to say that the machine performed faultlessly over the Christmas period.
