Machining Competence Centre


Innovation is generated at HEDELIUS through intensive dialogue with customers and prospective customers: listening, understanding the needs of managers and operators, and developing technical improvements and new machine designs based on that. We are convinced that this is the only way to generate real customer value.

The modern machining competence centre at the HEDELIUS site in Meppen offers optimum conditions for this dialogue and also for transferring know-how on the current technical developments in milling.

All the essential modules and machine elements, from the machine bed to the rotary/tilt table, are mechanically processed in our own 1,800 m² machining plant. It is equipped with the latest 5-axis machining centres which are capable of machining workpieces up to 30 metric tons in weight and up to 12 metres in length. The level of in-house manufacturing at the Meppen site has been increased gradually in recent years.

CELOX-integral motor spindles
CELOX-integral motor spindles
Powerful, high-torque CELOX®-integral motor spindles (as option) with hybrid bearing technology ensure the technological superiority of HEDELIUS machining centres. The hydro mechanical tool holding system in combination with the HSK interface guarantees the highest standards of rotational accuracy and system stability. The advantages of CELOX® motor spindle technology are most apparent in fiveaxis simultaneous machining.
ECO mode
ECO mode
All HEDELIUS machining centres are equipped as standard with the ECO MODE energy saving function. This means: all standby consumers not required when the machine is idling are optionally switched off either automatically or at the touch of a button. It is enough to simply press the button for the full capacity of the machining centre to be available again within seconds. What sounds simple minimizes the share of the energy needed to be on standby and adds up to many hundreds of kilowatt hours a year.
FORMINGSTAR 3D feed technology
FORMINGSTAR 3D feed technology
The performance of HEDELIUS moving column machining centres is substantially enhanced due to the innovative FORMINGSTAR® 3D feed technology. High-end servomotors with obliquely grooved ring magnets combined with liquid-cooled CELOX® motor spindles ensure even quieter running. Perfect tool quality is achieved due to the scalable path behaviour (toolmaking coordination) and direct measuring systems (with glass scales on all axes).
