August 25, 2011—

GF AgieCharmilles’ machines, automation solutions and services will be showcased in a brand new booth designed specifically to allow visitors to experience the value GF AgieCharmilles adds to manufacturers in growing industrial areas. Hall 27, Booth D44 at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds is the place to see the Group’s first-in-class products – many with Energy Care features – in action, as GF AgieCharmilles’ experts demonstrate a variety of demanding applications for manufacturing segments like automotive, aerospace and aeronautics, medical and dental technologies, electronic components, and Information and Communication Technology.

On the Milling side, GF AgieCharmilles will debut two new high-speed and high-performance machining centers. The Mikron HSM 600U LP is a high-speed milling solution for prototype production, die making and fully automated, low-volume series production where accuracy and surface finish are key success factors. The Mikron HPM 450U is a high-performance machine that boasts a new torque rotary tilting table for unlimited five-axis machining, and a cleverly conceived working spindle variation that could only come from a partner with deep application expertise from micro to macro. Besides these all-new solutions, GF AgieCharmilles will present the Mikron HPM 800U HD, a fully automated five-axis, high-output compact machining center with various pallet magazines.

GF AgieCharmilles will also demonstrate its Mikron HSM 400 LP Precision, which takes automated production of micro components for the die and mold sector to new heights in accuracy and surface finish; and the Mikron VCE 1000 Pro-X, featuring linear scales, a reliable and powerful 16,000 rpm inline spindle, as a cost-effective answer for increased machining demand in mold and die and for the accurate production of parts.

Four all-new EDM products will be unveiled by GF AgieCharmilles at EMO Hannover 2011: the Form 300 vP with S3R WPT1+, a highly versatile die-sinking machining solution representing new dimensions in autonomy and flexibility; the innovative Form 200 mS with RTC die-sinking EDM solution equipped with the Rotary Tool Changer; the Cut 2000 OilTech which uses oil as a dielectric to make surface protection an absolute priority; and the Drill 300, a quick, fine, reliable and powerful hole-drilling EDM machine.

GF AgieCharmilles will also demonstrate its  Cut 1000, an accurate wire-cutting EDM machine, especially designed for micro applications and equipped with the new Integrated Vision Unit (IVU), to deliver optical access to details that a 3-D probe does not; the Cut 200 wire-cutting EDM machine that accelerates productivity while offering greater autonomy over production costs and quality; and the die-sinking FORM 1000 with the new S3R WPT1+ offering exceptional accuracy and best efficiency in erosion.
