HELLER WerkTage 2016:
New Perspectives with Lifetime Productivity
As in the years before, Gebr. HELLER Maschinenfabrik GmbH invited customers, partners and providers to the Nürtingen site to present the latest developments and news. We look back on a successful event with many interested participants.
Solutions for the efficient 5 axis machining of structural components were on display at the “Marketplace TechnologyCenter”. Under the title “Open for innovations: CFRP in mechanical engineering”, August Wenzler Maschinenbau GmbH presented the new hybrid construction design of the vertical slide used as a part of the vertical chamber machine (VKM).
The new material mix of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) and steel inlays allows to reduce the weight of the component from 170 kg to 83 kg. Thereby, higher productivity can be achieved at an equivalent level of rigidity and with improved damping.
Within the next step, the hybrid component will be installed in a customer’s machine in order to demonstrate the direct benefit. The application of the CFRP material in machine construction aroused strong interest among the expert visitors.
Should you have any further questions on the topics mentioned above, we will be glad to assist you. We would like to thank all visitors of HALLER WerkTage 2016!
