Machining centre C 22

As the C 12’s bigger brother, the C 22 High-Performance Line machining centre has the same collision circle with longer traverse paths and larger component dimensions – and that means a huge degree of flexibility.

This equipment impresses with a large number of features. This makes the C 22 ideal for a particularly wide range of applications. Short process cycles, quick workflows and the highest possible machine dynamics: The flexible C 22 machining centre is ideal for machining high-quality parts with excellent accuracy and small tolerances. As with most HERMLE machining centres, the height-adjustable control panel can be adjusted to suit the operator’s working height.

Cooling units, fluid cabinet and switch cabinet are fully integrated into the compact machine enclosure. The space-saving deployment of the chip conveyor helps both in daily operation and for maintenance and servicing. The especially flexible machining centre can be transported without dismantling and set up without a foundation.

Energy efficiency in manufacturing and operation

HERMLE manufactures many components using lightweight construction and mineral casting technology. The high degree of own production, local suppliers and components with high efficiency factors also promote energy efficiency. Energy recuperation, high-quality servo drives and the legendary long service lives are all proof of the same high standards during actual operation.

HERMLE machining centre C 22 completely individual.

HERMLE offers you a wide range of options so that you can adapt the equipment of your HERMLE machining centre to your individual requirements.

It goes without saying that you will receive perfectly integrated systems and additions in which all elements are dovetailed, without friction or interface losses. Here are a few highlights:


Robot system and pallet changer

The C 22 ensures full flexibility, not least in terms of automation. In addition to the HS flex and the PW 150 pallet changer, the RS 05-2, RS1 and RS 2/combi robot systems can be combined with the flexible machining centre. Up to three peripheral devices can be connected to the C 22 in this way.

If required, the control tools HACS (“HERMLE Automation Control System”) and HIMS (“HERMLE Information Management System”) can be used to facilitate operation.

  • Handling system HS flex
  • Robot system RS 1
  • Pallet changer PW 150 with 15x pallet storage

  • C 22 - Steuerung: Bedienpult

Heidenhain or Siemens

Heidenhain TNC 640 / TNC7 and Siemens S 840 D – these are the three control systems which can be used with the C 22. They feature a variety of configurations and functionalities – including tools for improving precision for rotary and swivel operations, shell transformation and transparent tool management.

Options such as Dynamic Efficiency, Dynamic Precision or the Kinematic Opt. software also serve to widen the range of functions.
