At Fehlmann's booth are the company's two production cell machines, namely, the Versa 645 linear 5-axis machining centre with a portal design and the 3/4 and 5-axis machining centre Picomax 75 with the workpiece loading system Erowa Robot Compact 80. The Erowa Robot Compact 80 is a compact, high-performance, flexible automation system to increase productivity in the automated machining of single parts and small series.

According to Fehlmann, the well-thought and compact design of its production machines provide a basis for them to be easily automated. Their basic equipment provide necessary features for precision machining, which can be adapted for a wide range of automation concepts. Depending on the number of pallets and the variety of the parts, the system may be controlled and monitored by a pallet management integrated in the control unit or through a flexible Fehlmann MCM (Milling Center Manager).

The Versa 645 linear machines simple or complex precision parts dynamically. Be it 5-axis machining with positioning or 5-axis simultaneous milling, Versa 645 achieves precision and enables short machining times, thanks to its direct drives, the company explains. It adds that the weight and stiffly-optimised moving parts made of high-strength, spheroidal cast iron allow for high precision.

Complex parts of titanium and aluminium, for e.g., for the aerospace industry, form part of the application range, as do hardened tool steels in mould and die-making. Stainless steels in medical technology and demanding workpieces in general, mechanical engineering as well as vehicle construction are other application fields. Standardised or even customised automation with robots may be retrofitted at any time on the right side of the machine, which remains accessible, Fehlmann notes.

Other innovations include the Picomax 75 machining centre with an automatic dividing and swiveling unit ATS 200 CNC, the Picomax 56 L precision milling machine and the Picomax 21-M drilling/milling machine with a feed table.

At AMB, Fehlmann will be in Hall 7, Booth C30.
