Get an amazing deal on a new Mikron HEM 500U machining centre

“Although Renault Sport Formula One Team regularly invest in our latest Mikron HPM (High-Performance) 5-axis machines - and have done for some time, a situation arose back in October 2016 that saw the Team invest in a new Mikron HEM 700U…one of our entry level 5-axis machines.

A reliability issue affecting one of the Team’s older machines, from a different supplier, was compromising its ability to machine and supply performance-critical suspension components. 

They needed a quick and reliable solution so, naturally, they turned to us.

Although we didn’t have a HPM machine in stock at that time…we were confident that a 5-axis machine from our ‘HEM’ standard entry range would be ideal. The machining tests we did at our facility (and theirs) backed up our claims.

So, in a race against time, we delivered and installed a Mikron HEM 700U machining centre equipped with a large working envelope (700 x 600 x 500mm - X,Y, Z travels), a 20,000rpm spindle and a direct-drive rotary table.

Since being installed the machine hasn’t missed a beat.

You too can experience the same performance benefits as Renault Sport Formula One Team, for a lot less than you think!

Check-out the deal below.”
