C 52 / C 52 U MT Machining centre

The C 52 machining centre is a flexible multi-talent with an especially large working area and a very small footprint.

With the C 52, workpieces weighing up to 2000 kg can be machined in 5 axes simultaneously – with unbeatable precision and accuracy. The C 52 sets new standards: These are particularly valued in demanding industries such as machine construction, the automotive sector and aerospace. In short: wherever the highest precision and maximum efficiency are required. Ample dimensions, high-performance spindle drives and many useful innovations for practical work turn the C 52 / C 52 U MT machining centre into a top performer.

From the comprehensive fluid technology to the optimised chip management system and a range of cooling lubricant units to the hinged belt conveyor: This High-Performance Line model has a number of highlights to offer, e.g. the right chip disposal equipment for removing all types of chip from the working area. This high-performance machining centre 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 52 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:


Large pallet changer and complex robotics

With dimensions of 800 x 800 / Ø 1000 mm or 1000 x 800 / Ø 1166 mm, the PW 3000 pallet changer is no lightweight – just what the high-performance C 52 / C 52 U MT like. In addition, RS 2 and RS 3 robot systems can also be connected to the machining centre, up to three peripheral devices simultaneously. If required, the control tools HACS (“HERMLE Automation Control System”) and HIMS (“HERMLE Information Management System”) can be used to facilitate operation.

Heidenhain oder Siemens

Heidenhain TNC 640 / TNC7 and Siemens S 840 D – these are the two control types which can be used with the C 52 and C 52 U MT. 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.

When taking a risk achieves positive outcomes

Contract manufacturing

Bravotech is now a successful contractor based in the Belgian town of Oudenaarde. The company mills, deburrs and polishes moulds for hard-top cases, blades and turbine wheels for compressors and pumps, as well as engine components such as camshafts and crankshafts.

Artur Scheiermann an der C 52 U

Open and honest, but without the show

Contract manufacturing

Zerspanungstechnik Mangner chooses quality over loud marketing. The company owner now provides us with a rare glimpse inside the production facility. Nine 5-axis machining centres from Gosheim make up the bulk of the machinery. With them on its side, Mangner is sure it can live up to its delivery promises.

In future: even more complex

Toolcraft AG

Anyone who dares to combine additive manufacturing with precise machining clearly loves complexity. toolcraft uses both technologies and has been able to astonish its customers with hitherto unknown quality levels. Hermle's thought-through machine design plays an important role here.
