MIKRON NRG-50 / Transfer machining system


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Mikron Machining Technology stands for technological innovation, extreme precision with large quantities and high flexibility. The machining of parts is carried out on unique circular tables. The parts to be machined are transferred from one processing station to the other where it is possible to perform numerous operations at the same time, such as drilling, milling, turning, etc. Carrying out the machining of parts simultaneously and not sequentially, as is the case with most processing-centres, results in an enormous increase in the machining efficiency. The design of the machine and the transfer-function visualises Mikron’s technological competitive edge in this field. Due to the optimised ergonomics and operating concepts a maximum level of safety, dependability and productivity has been reached.
