Contract manufacturing

In contract manufacturing, high-precision single parts, large and heavy parts, small and large series or complete components are machined. Whether it be parts made of cast-iron, aluminium, plastics or stainless steel – a wide range of workpieces made from different materials reliably must be produced with highest accuracy and surface quality, often even with special geometries. High-performance milling machines such as the HEDELIUS machining centres fulfil the demands of contract manufacturing companies. They include both three-axis machining of long workpieces and highly accurate five-axis simultaneous machining of workpieces without multiple clampingg. Great flexibility and short tooling times by working in shuttle mode result in excellent cost effectiveness.
