IMTS 2016: Hermle's New Series to Offer Precision, Reliability and Affordability

May 25, 2016
Hermle has introduced the C 250 as a complement to their existing C 400 unit (introduced in 2012), and offers yet another affordable way for customers to enter the 5­axis category while still delivering the exceptional precision required at the most demanding level of machining. The C 250 shares the C 400’s modified gantry design and mineral­cast machine bed. The high precision machining of workpieces weighing up to 300kg is possible on the NC swiveling rotary table of the 5­axis version. The traverse path inside the working area is 600 x 550 x 450 mm for a vertical table clearance of 550 mm and a 688 mm door opening, creating optimal conditions for safe and simple crane loading. To enhance its range of application, Hermle offers additional features for customized and cost­efficient utilization of the C 250 such as additional magazines, various cooling and chip systems, extractors, tool breakage monitoring/measuring, and touch probes. The C 250 provides an integrated tool magazine for 30 tools with the option to incorporate two additional magazines with 50 or 88 additional pockets. The control panel of the C250 is also pivotable from the working area to the tool loading point, thus allowing the operator to directly enter tool data information into the tool table control. The C 250 comes standard with the Heidenhain TNC 640 and offers the entire scope of programming features provided by this proven high­ end control unit. The control panel has a full color 19-in. TFT flat­ panel monitor and can be optionally equipped with an ergonomically designed control panel for greater operator comfort. A Hermle integrated control unit provides the operator with optimum support for complex milling tasks and the HIMS technology (Hermle Information ­Monitoring Software) is also standard with C 250 along with the Maintenance ­Diagnostic System to facilitate efficient diagnostics and status ­oriented maintenance in the unlikely event of malfunctioning.
