  • Product overview


  • Top speed! With 2.5 t in 5 axes for all sectors.

    Milling at its best: Hermle machines are often at the forefront when it comes to optimized results. The proverbial Hermle precision in combination with process consulting and project management has made us the most important machine partner in nearly all key sectors – ranging from large-sized complex components to microcomponents in the high-tech field. Versatile use, uncompromising results – simply Hermle.

    Hermle machining centers have a very large round component diameter thanks to their axis design and the way that the NC swivelling rotary table is integrated into the machine.

    They can process very large workpieces relative to the installation area. Some models can even considerably exceed the 0° to 90° swivelling range.

    The C axes use either worm gears or torque drives, depending on the machining process. The A axes can be fitted with one-sided or tandem drives, depending on workpiece weight and the required dynamics. Our MT models can even mill or turn in 5 axes simultaneously.

    • MT-technology (MT – Mill/Turn)

    • Milling and turning in one clamping. The MT series with models C 42 U MT dynamic, C 50 U MT dynamic and C 60 U MT dynamic. Fully integrated rotary table that does not interfere with demanding milling processes and 5 axes simultaneously.

      The "other" MT concept
      All rotational machining operations can be performed even with the table swivelled. This opens up entirely new machining options and provides more flexibility in usage.

      Fully integrated rotary technology
      The combination of an integrated swivelling axis (A-axis) with the rotary table axis (C-axis) plus high-performance torque motors in the C-axis make it possible to perform challenging rotational machining tasks and combined milling and rotational machining.
        • Maximum safety through integrated balancing system

        • Larger workpieces can be machined in one clamping with combined turning/milling. To prevent problems or damage from occurring due to moments of inertia that occur, a manually operated balancing system is integrated into the rotary table.
        • Technical features for complete, reliable machining of precision parts

        • Tool measuring and tool breakage monitoring system for measuring turning tools by laser and scanning turning tools with a 3D probe. Modular, ergonomically accessible additional magazines for other milling/ turning tools can also optionally be adapted.
        • The following types of machining can be performed with the MT series:

        • Milling processes: 5-sided machining with up to 5-axis simultaneous machining
          Rotational machining: Horizontal/vertical milling up to 5-axis simultaneous machining
      • Automation

      • Outright efficiency! Universal automation.
        We can only succeed in the long run if we operate on the market with foresight. For this reason, we founded our automation subsidiary in the middle of the nineteen-nineties. This subsidiary rigorously pursues the further development of our solutions – from simple automation components to turnkey projects.
        Everybody talks about automation, but it’s much more than just a trendy word. We ourselves have changed from being a machine manufacturer to a process provider because we believe that the decisive criterion for automated efficiency is integration of the entire environment and periphery.

        In keeping with this philosophy, we are continuing what began with economical pallet changing and intelligent handling systems with highly advanced robot solutions. We have been capable of converting machines into flexible manufacturing cells for over 15 years now.

        Double or triple productivity. The RS 2 and 3 robot systems can naturally be adapted to encompass multiple machining centers with a wide variety of machining tasks. The storage systems are also completely and flexibly adjustable.
        • Additive Manufacturing

        • The Hermle MPA technology
          Additive manufacturing using MPA technology

          For more than 10 years now we investigate in the development of new additive manufacturing techniques and processes. The MPA technology developed by Hermle Maschinenbau GmbH is a versatile tool for generative creation of large-volume components offering a widespread field of applications. It is especially in the field of injection moulding and die casting tools where the MPA technology can play to its strength. One of its prominent features is the possibility to complement precast blanks with additively applied components. The results are hybrid-manufactured components entering new dimensions in additive manufacturing with weights up to several hundred kilos and dimensions larger than 500mm in diameter.

                  • Precision

                  • Dead-on!  Precision knows no limits.
                    Precision in every dimension: Hermle has a thorough understanding of the requirements for manufacturing high-precision machining centers for processing smaller and larger workpieces of up to 2.5 t in weight. For this reason, "The Original" only uses German machines for production and materials from European suppliers. Furthermore, the entire machining production department is fully air conditioned and kept clean by a central swarf disposal system.

                    Hermle machining centers are thoroughly tested by means of intensive endurance tests and in manufacture-oriented machining processes in our own machining manufacturing department. Our meticulous manufacturing processes allow Hermle to set new precision standards which undercut those demanded by the DIN/ISO 10791 standard in every way.
                    • Control units

                    • The art of control!  User-friendly programming.
                      No demanding milling can do without control units from HEIDENHAIN and SIEMENS. They offer many benefits and have user-friendly, large flat screens, user-defined softkeys and many additional software functions. They always come only with very high-specification equipment as standard.

                      In addition, angle encoders, rotary encoders, position displays and numeric control units are specially developed and produced for us to handle demanding positioning tasks.
                      And yet, that is still not all. Additional tools programmed in our company ensure that mechanical, control and software interfaces are perfectly matched.
