Flexible drilling/milling center for steel beam processing

Until now, steel beams were processed inconsecutively-arranged machining stations. HERCULES – in the development of which tech-solute® had significant involvement – enables an increase in productivity of up to 80% and requires a fraction of the area needed for conventional systems. Starting with the generation of ideas about how the vision of a flexible machining center could be realized, the task package included the development of numerous mechanical sub-assemblies and actively supporting the construction and commissioning of the machine.
