The family-owned company Fill Gesellschaft m.b.H., headquartered in Gurten, Austria, develops and produces machinery and equipment for the metal, plastics and wood industries. For the production of machine column beds for the machining centers of its SYNCROMILL series, the new customer has purchased a KCR II 150 boring mill in cross-bed design of the UNION brand.
In order to be able to meet the enormously high accuracy requirements of the machining process, so that the tight tolerances in the manufacturing process as well as a comprehensive manufacturing depth can be maintained, Fill deliberately decided on the latest technology from WaldrichSiegen.
The DV 45 hydrostatic rotary and positioning table with a size of 2,500 x 2,500 mm and a maximum load of 45 t, as well as the use of the UC-U 45 universal milling head, provide additional stability and precision during the entire machining process.
The separate tool changing unit with 100 positions for a horizontal and vertical tool change as well as the pick-up shuttle with two stations and lateral storage for six special tools enable parallel, highly efficient machining of two workpieces.
The K series in cross-bed design is the ideal solution when it comes to complete machining of large, heavy workpieces with particularly demanding requirements in the area of highest accuracies.
