HEIDENHAIN iTNC 530 being used on challenging materials
“Most people would be afraid to do this,” says Patrick Meyer, founder of Carbomill AG. But he is not afraid of machining complex workpieces, including those made from carbon-fiber reinforced plastics. In order to deliver perfect results from the start, the young entrepreneur invested in a Fooke ENDURA 711 gantry-type milling machine, equipped with an iTNC 530 from HEIDENHAIN. His customers are very demanding, and come from motorsports and the automobile and aerospace industries.
Deep-hole gun drill machine for hydraulic press manufacturing
Two HEIDENHAIN controls are an integral part of an unusual deep-hole gun drill machine now in place at Dieffenbacher North America hydraulic press manufacturer. This deep-hole drilling machine has three spindles that can operate simultaneously over a 12000 mm table, enabling not only the manufacture of deep holes up to 2500 mm in very large press plates but to also machine the necessary pockets all at the same time.
