Investment in machine inventory

High precision horizontal boring mill from UnionChemnitz in Siegen

Machine tools, which work to within a few microns, must also be made with precision. To ensure that all machine components meet the most stringent requirements, Herkules has made in-house production its hallmark. All key components of the machines are manufactured in-house and machined with utmost precision.

Herkules regularly invests in state of the art production machinery to stay at the cutting edge of technology. A new UnionChemnitz KC 130 horizontal boring mill was put into operation at Herkules Siegen in summer 2014.

The KC 130 features an automatic tool changer, automatic work piece measurement, a 3D radio touch probe, compact precision roller guides in all linear axes and longitudinal compensation of the boring spindle. The resulting high precision and production efficiency are put to good use in the machining of steady rests, thrust bearings, headstocks and tailstocks for Herkules machines.

The KC 130 is the second UnionChemnitz boring mill at Herkules. Another table type boring mill from Chemnitz has been in operation in Siegen since 2009.
