Hermle sets date for open house

Over 30 machining centres, mainly 5-axis models and some with various types of automation, will be displayed at an open house to be held on 8-11 May in Gosheim, Germany, where the headquarters and factory of machine tool builder Hermle AG can be found. Manufacturers in the UK and Ireland interested in attending the event should contact sole agent, Kingsbury.

Hermle's complete range will be in evidence, including the 'Performance Line', which has recently been expanded to include mill-turn variants and the C650 model. Guided tours of the production and assembly areas will give visitors an insight into Hermle's manufacturing processes.

A special area will be set aside for partner companies to exhibit their latest developments in associated technology segments such as tooling, inspection, CADCAM and control systems. Other highlights will include Hermle's proprietary MPA additive manufacturing system, work-holding technology and software innovations.
