Building 6 – machining before removing the old ‘skeleton’ of the building (August 2017)


  • The new facility contains three Heller universal machining centres with a 14-pallet storage system and a setup station.
  • A new Burkhardt + Weber universal machining centre combined with a 4-level, high-bay pallet storage system for up to 32 pallets.
  • Two Hermle C 60 UP MT dynamic 5-axis machining centres with mill/turn function and a PW 3000 pallet changer and a ZM 192 additional magazine.

Energy management
The process heat (specific heat) from the production machines is transferred to a storage system and distributed via a heat/cold convector or converted into cold air in the summer.
New transformer station for building 6. At low voltage, our cable lengths result in an up to 2% capacity loss. However, power is saved by installing the transformer station directly at the consumer.
