The current situation is an enormous challenge for all companies and industries. In phases of economic uncertainty, reliability and performance are therefore all the more important for strategic investment decisions for the future. The Chinese company Dongfang Electric Wuhan relies on this reliable WaldrichSiegen quality and orders another ProfiMill portal milling machine.
Dongfang Electric Wuhan (DFWH) is a long-standing customer of WaldrichSiegen and part of the Dongfang Electric Corporation (DEC), one of the world's leading manufacturers of plants and products for electrical power generation. DFWH products require the highest degree of machining precision, for which WaldrichSiegen machines are well known. The decision was consequently made in favor of a machine of the ProfiMill series, which was specially designed for high-precision workpiece machining. The technical specifications of the new ProfiMill for DFWH are convincing with 68 kW spindle power, a table size of 6,000 x 4,000 mm, a clearance width of 5,000 mm and machine components like milling heads that are optimally adapted to the customer's requirements.
The group of companies already has several WaldrichSiegen horizontal lathes of the ProfiTurn H series in operation and knows the reliable quality and long-term accuracy of WaldrichSiegen machines. For another company of the group, Dongfang Heavy Machinery Co. Ltd., WaldrichSiegen already delivered a ProfiMill in 2012, which is one of the largest gantry type portal milling machines in the world. With 135 kW spindle power at the main spindle, torques of more than 10,000 Nm and a clearance width of 8,500 mm, WaldrichSiegen has set standards in regards of quality and precision for the machine for Dongfang Heavy Machinery.
The convincing performance of the new ProfiMill compared to the competition in combination with the positive experiences of the WaldrichSiegen machines already received were the most important factors for the decision to invest in the new machine.
The performance of the WaldrichSiegen machines is convincing - and this quality creates confidence, which is also noticeable in the current situation. Dongfang Electric has decided for a ProfiMill from WaldrichSiegen and thus for a significant increase in performance, efficiency and quality of the end product.
