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.
