Mikron MILL E 500 U and Mikron MILL E 700 U: Productivity and flexibility are hallmarks of GF Machining Solutions’ latest five-axis, high-efficiency Milling solutions

11-jul-2017 16:45

Efficient production and fast return on investment reach a new level with the Mikron MILL E 500 U and Mikron MILL E 700 U, the latest five-axis, high-efficiency Milling solutions from GF Machining Solutions. GF Machining Solutions’ International Solution Days, April 24–28, 2017 in Losone, Switzerland, is the place for manufacturers of small to medium batches of parts to see at first-hand how these machines deliver the best price- performance ratio essential to achieving competitive cost per part.

Manufacturers benefit from additional working hours at lowest cost, thanks to the Mikron MILL E machines’ integrated Automation. Indeed, these solutions allow users to leverage an additional unmanned shift. By ramping up productivity and setting the stage for lowest operational costs, the machines provide the most competitive cost per part. Moreover, the integrated Automation can be substituted by larger Automation systems, with GF Machining Solutions as the sole partner, thanks to its System 3R Tooling, Automation, and software competencies.

Scaling up customers’ businesses

Parts manufacturers can scale up their businesses by increasing their capacity and capabilities, too. The Mikron MILL E range, the successor to the HEM U range, offers greater machining capacity and better machining performance on a more robust machine base. With their large swivel range of -120 degrees to 60 degrees and ability to load heavy parts up to 450 kg onto the tilting swiveling table, the Mikron MILL E 500 U and Mikron MILL E 700 U allow users to manufacture a wider range of parts and tools than any other machine on the market today. The machines are based on a stiff, stable C-frame construction made out of cast iron. Quality of parts produced and reliable operations are ensured by the solutions’ large guideways, double side-supported rotary table, and an optimum chip removal rate. The Mikron MILL E range is the right solution for job shops and part manufacturers facing the many different requirements of the automotive, energy and power generation as well as general mechanics industries.

Secure processes, reduced costs

Beyond increasing productivity, ensuring process stability and reducing operational costs are key. That is why the Mikron MILL E range focuses on increasing quality on parts and enhancing tool life span, thanks to a well-supported, solid Step-Tec Spindle head and a rigid, flexible rotary table. The power of the 20,000 rpm Spindle in combination with the state-of-the-art machine design allows rough Milling and drilling operations. Plus, the Mikron MILL E range’s 20 percent higher chip removal rate compared to the previous generation reduces manufacturing costs by 15 percent.

Avoid unplanned downtime

Every company strives to plan its machine downtime and keep unplanned maintenance close to zero while delivering high quality parts right on time. To help manufacturers avoid the headaches of machine downtime, the Mikron MILL E uses high-quality, built-in components. GF Machining Solutions Customer Services offers regular maintenance that can be planned. Maximum uptime is further ensured by GF Machining Solutions’ established, high-quality process management and intensive testing throughout the machine assembly process.
