WaldrichSiegen received the order for a large portal milling machine in gantry design from Dongfang Heavy Machinery in Guangzhou, China.
Now, the time has come: A giant comes to life at the WaldrichSiegen assembly hall in Burbach, Germany. The portal milling machine is one of the largest machines ever built by WaldrichSiegen. It has the impressive size of 8,5 m distance between the columns and a passage height of 7,5 m. Machine bed, columns and crossbar have already been assembled. Hydraulics, hydrostatics and electrics are currently being installed. The heart of the machine, a milling and boring unit with an impressive traverse of 3,5 m in the Z axis and 120 kW performance has also already been assembled.
As soon as the assembly in Burbach is completed, the commissioning of the machine will start. The machining units and the machine equipment will be completed at the same time. After handing over the gantry machine to Dongfang, the ProfiMill will be the centerpiece for the production of turbine housings and other complex components for power plants.
