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.
Strengthening the long & trustful Partnership with Decomecc
We are very proud of our long and trustful partnership with Decomecc and look forward to strengthening it with this new project!
"The GEORG ultrablock was very beneficial to us", says Herbert Geier from AMAG
One of our first roll grinding machines with our new GEORG ultrablock machine bed design, the GEORG ultragrind SG 2 has now been commissioned at AMAG in Ranshofen (Austria).
Herbert Geier, Project Manager at AMAG: "The GEORG ultrablock concept was very beneficial to us, as the cost of the foundation is significantly lower than for other machines. Since no modifications whatsoever were required to the standard machine, we also benefited from the short delivery time".
Delivery of the first five machines with the GEORG smartcontrol
We are now pleased to be able to deliver the GEORG smartcontrol to a customer for the first time.
The control is based on the #SINUMERIK_ONE, and as a digital native control, is ideally equipped for the future.
With the #digitaltwin of our machine, we were able to carry out some tests beforehand. This helps us to shorten the commissioning time.
Our confidence in the new technology is so high that we will deliver not just one but five machines.
