The C 400 is a dynamic and economical machining center designed for 5-axis / 5-side machining. This is where Hermle’s well-known core competence in 5-axis technology comes into its own. The mineral cast machine bed provides for the C 400’s stable, vibration-free machining. You will find some application examples below from the areas of toolmaking and mould construction as well as machine construction.

High-tech tool spindles with collision protection

Like the swivelling rotary tables, the tool spindles are also completely manufactured in-house at the Gosheim site. The slimline tool spindles are constructed in two parts and can be replaced easily and quickly during servicing. Thanks to low interfering edges and collision protection by compression sleeves, safety is given primary importance by maximum collision avoidance. Damage can be prevented in  50 % of collisions.

Flexible machine state monitoring

The HIMS control tool (‘Hermle Information Management System’) allows for flexible machine state monitoring for the C 400, including a ‘Live Messenger’ amongst other features. The Hermle High-Performance Line models can also be automated to a considerably greater degree, including the addition of pallet changers, handling, rotary loading and robot systems and pneumatic arbour holders
