Aluminium Plate Milling Machine for Constellium
Market with future potential: GEORG sells an additional Aluminium Plate Milling Machine
Kreuztal Mai 2018. Company Heinrich Georg signed the order for another project in the field of aluminium-plate machining.
The new milling machine type GEORG ultramill 2600 T will be delivered to leading Swiss aluminium producer Constellium during summer next year.
The main reason for the investment is the increase in production capacities due to rising demands in the market says Constellium.
For machining of the large aluminium plates GEORG is using a milling carriage with a maximum main drive power of 200 kW and a milling head of 2.500 mm diameter.
Process reliability, quality and flexibility were the main issues for the decision and were without compromise for Constellium.
Beside the tremendous accuracy requirements which were set to the milling machine type ultramill, additionally GEORG owes the order to the high level of references in this market segment. With this order GEORG delivers since 2014 already the fifth machine into the area of aluminium-plate manufacturing.
„Obviously we could convince the leading manufacturers with our machine and service concept about the productivity of the GEORG design” says Jan Ebener Head of Sales at GEORG´s machine tool division. “Especially the high precision Z-axis gives us an enormous advantage compared to our competitors” added Jan Ebener.
LTC relies on Georg robotline technology.
This year Georg comissioned two GEORG precisioncut TBA 400 robotlines at LTC in Italy successfully. The lines produce fully automatically complete transformer cores up to 1700mm lamination length and up to 440mm lamination width.
First Coil: Decomecc starts slitting operation on new GEORG slitting line
Last year we reported on the investment decision of our long-time customer Decomecc NV from Genk/Belgium in a slitting line from GEORG, which was to be designed for the specific needs of the automotive industry. Now the Belgian company successfully announces the first strip cuts.
Hitachi Energy has ordered two new GEORG precisioncut TBA400 lines for two of their plants.
The first one is a machine type GEORG precisioncut TBA400 ecoline L with a full sequence in-line stacker for up to 1200 mm lamination length. The machine is now starting operation in the plant in Lodz, Poland.
Successful commission of TBA400 at Lemi
TBA400 with high-speed configuration at our long-standing customer Lemi Trafo JSC.
Together with one slitting line which was put into operation a few weeks ago, the new TBA400 expands Lemi's machine park and supports their growth strategy.
The benefits of pin stacker technology for the distribution transformer production can also be gained from a Transformer Magazine article 'Demand driven core production' we published recently.
Finally, a special congratulations to our technicians and also to our customer’s employees for carrying out the commissioning in record time.
Remote Service in Vietnam
Travel restrictions during the pandemic made it often impossible to visit our customers on site. This also applied to the installation and commissioning of our machines. However, we successfully supported our customers remotely, through our online service.
