Owen Industries

In today’s world of manufacturing, establishing a niche and maximizing processes are invaluable advantages. Having the right equipment to do so, that’s a challenge Owen’s Industries tackled head on – most recently purchasing two additional HERMLE Performance Line C 400 milling machines.

5-axis technology for etching, washing, drying

Supplier industry

According to World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS), the European market was projected to experience growth of 6.3% in 2023. This fact also has a direct impact on suppliers like Ramgraber: Microchip manufacturers utilise its equipment to etch, structure, strip, plate, wash and dry their wafers – often based on silicon, silicon carbide, gallium arsenide, glass or ceramics. The company places a significant emphasis on vertical integration, a principle to which the HERMLE C 400 U also contributes.

Success through machine clones

Tool technology

Precupa combines high-precision tool making with plastic injection moulding and develops injection moulding solutions for the world of tomorrow at its technical centre. One of the core competences in production is milling. This is where the precision tool maker relies on HERMLE, making full use of its entire Performance Line.

Contract manufacturing

Medical engineers take things very seriously. To ensure the timely delivery and top quality of orthopaedic implants, hg medical relies on nearly two dozen HERMLE 5-axis machining centres. The contract manufacturer recently ventured into the world of robot automation for the first time and stands to gain from numerous benefits.

Copper cools constantly

Tool technology
Alhorn views the MPA technology from the HERMLE subsidiary HMG as advantageous in every respect, offering shorter cycles and more stable processes and, in some cases, even serving as the enabler. The precision tool maker always turns to generative services when traditional cooling technologies become inadequate.

Wiegelmann is an expert in aluminium and steel mould making and plastic injection moulding. The mould maker is a stickler for deadlines and perfection, even when the parts have complex geometries. When it comes to machining, Wiegelmann relies on Hermle. HS flex automation arrived at the German company in the shape of the new C 42 U, making sure its range of machinery is even more flexible and versatile.

Flexibility thanks to robot automation

Medical technology

SWACRIT systems GmbH specialises in the production of top-quality composite parts, mechatronic assemblies and high-precision mechanical components. To enhance productivity and efficiency, the high-tech company based in Tyrol, Austria, has invested in HERMLE's RS 1 robot automation solution, which enables the flexible and continuous manufacture of individual parts and components on pallets.

Cooler thanks to copper in the core

S&S Werkzeugbau GmbH
Tool and mold making

S&S Werkzeugbau manufactures complete injection moulds entirely in-house – from design through to the initial moulding. However, the mould makers make an exception in the case of a reliable cooling solution for narrow cross-sections: Hermle Maschinenbau uses metal-powder application technology (MPA) to integrate copper into mould cores, thereby optimising heat outflow in the injection moulding process.

Huarui Precision Cutting Tools' mission is to be one of the best suppliers of cutting tools in China. It has therefore been looking for the best machines for production – and has finally invested in thirteen 5-axis machining centres from Hermle in 2022. Hermle China not only convinced with the hardware.

Digitalisation: the foundation for automation

Contract manufacturing

High variance and different batch sizes can cause many a contract manufacturer to panic – but not microart. The manufacturer of complex precision parts creates digital structures, which it combines with automated 5-axis machining centres from Hermle. The result: efficient milling with flexible capacity.

SK TECHNOLOGY is formidable when it comes to precision. That’s the result of an awareness that minute subtleties are the difference between acceptance and rejection – and a stock of machinery that can withstand critical inspection down to the micrometre range. This is where Hermle succeeds. Six automated 5-axis machining centres allow the cutting expert to be really picky.

Tool & mold making

Cafmeyer manufactures press moulds. The more complex the part, the more parts needed for the mould. In the past, the Belgian mould maker was sometimes pushed to the limits of its capabilities – both in terms of dimension and capacity. The company therefore decided to invest in a Hermle C 650 U 5-axis machining centre with HS flex heavy automation.

Managing Director Theo Zegers describes the fact that SAM Precision ordered a new 5-axis machining centre from Hermle at the beginning of 2021 as a stroke of luck. Because the demand for precision machining rose unpredictably shortly afterwards. By letting the new C 32 U with RS 1 robot system work autonomously overnight and at weekends, he can respond more flexibly and quickly to customer wishes.

A component for the automotive industry is currently manufactured 24/7 on the second machine. On this machine, we now produce the same number of parts in one week with two people as we did before with two machines and four people. It's beyond our wildest hopes," Aigner says proudly.

We profit considerably from the productivity, the tolerance fidelity and the quality," adds the CEO. The same applies to the service. "The Hermle technicians are always available and they produce solutions and replacement parts in no time." Especially for a small family-owned company, this is an absolute must. "If the machine is standing still, we are losing orders."
