The Hermle company has developed the C 650 to extend its Performance Line series with a major step upwards, and now provides three machine models for economical 3 and 5 axis machining. The Performance Line is positioned below the High Performance Line consisting of models C 12, C 22, C 32, C 42, C 52 and C 62, and it very nearly matches their performance capabilities. The only differences are to be found in the accessory diversity, the price and of course the naming.
The HS flex handling system marks the continuation of Hermle AG’s commitment, lasting almost 20 years, to the automation of its machining centres, with the company introducing a powerful, compact and extremely attractively priced automation tool onto the market. Despite not yet being marketed or presented, several units have already been sold, which clearly emphasises the economic benefits that automation represents.

“The Hermle C 22 U machining centre is so precise that it prompted us to question the results we were getting from our existing shopfloor co-ordinate measuring machines. It led to the purchase of two new Zeiss Duramax CMMs – one for milled components and another for turned parts.” (Kenny Marsden, Reliance Precision)
