There are many reasons why MACH visitors should make a beeline for the Starrag UK stand.
Not least to learn about the company’s latest machines – particularly Bumotec’s new cost-effective 191neo mill-turn centre for small, complex parts – and at how Starrag’s ‘Engineering precisely what you value’ slogan continues to help companies of every size achieve significant bottom-line rewards when using machines of Starrag’s product ranges Berthiez, Bumotec, Dörries, Droop+Rein, Ecospeed, Heckert, Scharmann, SIP and Starrag.
Targeted particularly at users in the medical, luxury goods and micro-mechanics industries, the new 7-axis Bumotec 191neo can accommodate bar of 42mm, 50mm and 65mm diameter, and with up to 90 tools and intuitive HMI control system the machine will enable users to achieve impressive results in terms of cost-per-part for high added-value small components produced in a single set-up.
Indeed, another recent example of how Starrag’s success has been built on providing machining solutions for specific market demands is the affordable Heckert H65 machining centre.
Launched last summer, Starrag’s new lower cost Heckert H65 compact horizontal machining centre adds a new dimension to heavy-duty 4-axis machining with a high-end specification and exemplary performance for a machine of its class. Occupying just 24m², the H65 offers machining speeds up to 30% faster than comparable models and can increase output levels by a staggering 80% according to the manufacturer
With X-, Y- and Z-axes of 850mm x 1,020mm x 1,000mm and 630mm x 500mm twin pallets each able to accommodate loads of 1.5 tonnes (with a pallet-change time of 13 seconds), this latest addition to Heckert’s compact H range of cost-competitive machining centres provides traverse rates up to 80m/minute and a standard spindle speed of up to 10,000rpm from its 60kW/450Nm hollow shaft HSK-A100 spindle – a torque rating that will push carbide tooling to the limit on hard metals.
Visitors to the company’s MACH stand will also learn how an Ecospeed machining centre is the latest in a line of machines now featured in Starrag’s new Aerospace Competence Center in Switzerland.
With traverse rates of 50m/minute, the Ecospeed is renowned for its high aluminium removal rates of up to 12 litres/minute and is globally acknowledged as one of the most productive ways to produce complex aluminium structural parts.
Starrag’s Aerospace Competence Center has been enhanced to showcase a selection of machines and their capabilities, as well as the accompanying technologies required for the machining of all manner of aerospace/aircraft workpieces.
Aerospace, medical and luxury goods are, of course, core industries for Starrag – but so too, are energy, transport and industrial components: “Visitors to MACH from all these sectors may well be surprised – and pleased – at how affordable and available many Starrag machines are,” enthuses Lee Scott, Starrag UK director for sales and applications.”
