It's exactly ten years since GROB Werke, based in Mindelheim, Germany, exhibited a G350 with horizontal spindle position at EMO in Hannover. Since then, not only has the 5-axis universal machining center established itself on the market, but it has also made 5-axis technology a key player in mechanical engineering throughout the world. The company is now at EMO Hannover 2017 to present the latest developments in universal machines - market-tested, next-generation machine concepts - live in action.
GROB is also using its presentation in Hannover to unveil to the international visitors its expansion plans for its electromobility portfolio. By taking over Italian-based DMG meccanica - one of the leading mechanical and plant engineering companies for electric motors - GROB has comprehensively expanded its electromobility know-how. In Hannover, the company will be setting out, among other things, the next steps it will be taking as it seeks to become an expert service provider and point of contact for the automotive industry.
