Starrag Takes Multi-Million Orders During Mach Week

In addition to receiving orders valued at multi millions of Euros, Starrag UK reports a hugely successful MACH week “with many positive comments by visitors who in particular were very surprised – and pleased – at how affordable and available the new range of Heckert machining centres are”.

Lee Scott, Starrag UK Director for Sales and Applications, also added: “Visitors also commented favourably on our extensive experience of Industry 4.0 and automation, aspects of modern production that are proving increasingly important to companies of every size across all industry sectors.”

The Heckert X40 has X, Y and Z axes travels of 700 mm by 750 mm by 750 mm and can accommodate workpiece heights of 500 mm and loads of 400 kgs

The stand promoted all product ranges marketed under the Starrag brand – Berthiez, Bumotec, Dörries, Droop+Rein, Ecospeed, Heckert, Scharmann, SIP and Starrag – though the focus was on the Heckert range of affordable yet highly productive and high-speed four-/five-axis horizontal machining centres.

Heckert’s recently-announced new machine series has been designed to cost-effectively meet the needs of a wide range of companies of any size within supply chains across multiple industries.

Boasting traverse rates up to a staggering 80 m/min, the machines – H45, H50 and H55, L40, L50, L55 and X40 – not only have a smaller footprint of up to 30% less than traditional horizontal machines, which results in an estimated 15% increase in productivity per unit area, but they also boast:

– Acceleration rates of 1.2 g,

– Tool change (chip-to-chip) times down to 2.2 secs, and

– Pallet change times down to 8.5 secs.
