Part of the Swiss Mikron Group, Mikron Machining is a leading supplier of customer-specific, high-performance machining systems for manufacturing complex, high-precision metal components such as turbocharger housings, injection nozzles and ballpoint pen tips. To date, Mikron Machining has developed and commissioned over 7,000 machining systems. Its international customers include companies from the automotive, electronics, telecommunications, medtech, consumer goods, construction, pneumatics and hydraulics industries. One of the latest and already highly successful developments by Mikron Machining is the new Mikron 6x6 modular machine tool building platform, which the company is premiering at EMO Hannover 2019.
The Mikron 6x6 modular machine tool building platform offers no fewer than 102 different combinations. These result from six different workpiece tables, six automation variants, single- and dual-spindle machine versions and multi-clamping options. As each of the two spindles can reach all workpieces in the system, single-spindle CNC-corrected finishing can also be carried out in multiple clamping scenarios, in addition to dual-spindle rough and finish machining. According to the manufacturer, the Mikron 6x6 is one of the best machine tools in its class thanks to its compact design and versatility. The company sees its machining center as ideal for a whole range of sectors when it comes to efficiently machining high-end components made from steel, cast iron or light metal with first-class precision and within the tightest of tolerances.
