Machining centre C 250

Within the model range, the C 250 is the entry-level model into the world of 5-axis milling – and into the HERMLE Performance Line.

Thanks to the wide-reaching swivelling range of the workpieces in the working area, the exploitation of the full traverse range and the large collision circle between the table sections, the C 250 has the largest working area in relation to the installation area. And it is constructed for everyday use: The application video shows the HERMLE C 250 U in the 5-axis version machining a Rockerbox in Toolox33 for vehicle technology. Maximum precision thanks to the HERMLE swivelling rotary table concept. The machining table has a generously dimensioned worm drive. With the A axis, the gearwheel on the table housing is accessed directly.

Comprehensive fluid technology, optimised chip management, variety of cooling lubricant units: Even as an entry-level model, the C 250 has a number of highlights to offer, e.g. the right chip disposal equipment for removing all types of chips from the working area. The machining centre with 5-axis milling capability can be transported without being dismantled 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 250 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:


Flexible machine state monitoring

The HIMS control tool (‘HERMLE Information Management System’) allows for flexible machine state monitoring even for the C 250 entry-level model, including a Live Messenger amongst other features.

The HERMLE High-Performance Line models can also be automated to a considerably greater degree, including the addition of pallet changers, handling, rotary loading and robot systems and pneumatic arbour holders.

  • Handling system HS flex
  • Robot system RS 05-2


  • C 250 - Steuerung: Bedienfeld

Heidenhain TNC 640 / TNC7

The control provides free contour programming and functions for fast 3D machining as well as a trackball, USB and Ethernet interfaces. Options such as Dynamic Efficiency, Dynamic Precision or the Kinematic Opt. software also serve to widen the range of functions.

Customised setups and control tools from HERMLE simplify and improve operation.

"Hermle makes no distinction between large and small customers. As a rule, the service technicians are on site within 24 hours and always have a solution ready," praises Silber. The issue of competence is particularly important to him. If it is missing, there are consequences, as he sees in other companies: "Without the appropriate know-how, the best machine is of no use.
