The factory, built in 2004, was especially designed for the machining of large series of complex parts. 60 members of staff are running the production 24 hours a day 365 days a year on approx. 3600 m2 of floor space.
TURNING: The turning-department includes both vertical and horizontal turning machines. These machines are all equipped with robots and joined together to form complex turning cells, able to machine up to three different parts simultaneously.
MILLING: The milling-department includes 27 five-axis-milling machines each equipped with a 6-axis robot for the machining and handling of complex milled products.
BALANCING: Our fully automated balancing cell is capable of balancing impellers as required to the highest attainable quality standards up to a diameter of approximately 100mm.
TOOLING: Five five-axis grinding machines are used to develop and manufacture in house the cutting tools for PRAE-TURBO.
PROTOTYPE CENTER: For short lead-times for your prototypes and to guarantee 100% confidentiality of our customers information, a specialised prototype cell has been built. The prototype cell is only accessible to those employees working on the prototype. The parts can be turned, milled, and measured in this sealed prototype-center where we are also able to perform a 3-dimensional blade measurement, balancing and PPAP.
In 2010 more than 1,000,000 milled impellers and other complex parts were milled in our factory and a wide range of different forgings are available in our stock.
