1 min read

There are many reasons why visitors to the show should make a beeline for the Starrag UK stand at Southern Manufacturing next month.

Visitors can not only to learn about the company’s latest cost-effective Heckert horizontal machining centres, but also how Starrag’s ‘Engineering precisely what you value’ slogan helps companies of every size achieve significant bottom-line rewards with machines from Starrag’s product ranges of Berthiez, Bumotec, Dörries, Droop+Rein, Ecospeed, Heckert, Scharmann, SIP and Starrag.

These include the lower cost Heckert H65 compact machining centre that adds a new dimension to heavy-duty four-axis machining with an unprecedented specification and unrivalled performance for a machine of its class.

Occupying just 24 square metres, the H65 offers machining speeds up to 30% faster than comparable models and can increase output levels by a staggering 80%!

With X, Y and Z axes of 850mm x 1,020mm x 1,000mm and 630mm x 500mm twin pallets each able to accommodate loads of 1.5 tonnes, the machine boasts traverse rates up to 80 m/min and a standard spindle speed of up to 10,000 revs/min from its 60 kW/450 Nm hollow shaft HSK-A100 spindle – a torque rating that will push carbide tooling to the limit on hard metals.

Aerospace, medical and luxury goods are core industries for Starrag machines – but so, too, are energy, transport and industrial components and “visitors to Southern Manufacturing from all these sectors will be surprised – and pleased – at how affordable and available many Starrag machines are”.
