Large product? Build the machine around the workpiece!

If you want a milling, turning or grinding product - or a whole range of them - you logically look for the most suitable machine. Geometry, dimensions, tolerances, ... play a role in this. The Swiss company Suhner, however, has a different approach to this problem.

The company offers modules that can be assembled into a machine. Drilling, milling and grinding heads can be fitted to a frame around the product. They can work in parallel or sequentially. This is an especially attractive approach for large and bulky products such as those found in the aerospace industry.

The modules are equipped as standard with a pneumatic drive. They can also be fitted with internal cooling, servo motors, ... If desired by the customer, it can be completely covered so that it becomes a closed machine.
