Hermle Machine Company has released a new machine to the North American market. The C 650 is an extension to the Hermle Performance Line Series, and Hermle now provides three machine models for economical five-axis machining. The Performance Line now consists of the C 250, C 400 and the new C 650. Like the C 250 and the C 400, the C 650 uses a modification of Hermle's gantry-type design. The swiveling rotary table can accommodate workpieces up to 1500 kg (Ø 900 x 600 mm), enabling highly precise machining.

The traverse path in the stainless-steel-clad working area comprises 1050 x 900 x 600 mm with a vertical table clearance of 775 mm and a door aperture of 1050 mm. Hermle says these parameters are ideal for simple and safe crane charging. The C 650 has an integrated tool magazine for 42 tools, and additional magazines are available. The C 650 is equipped with the Heidenhain TNC 640 control system as standard, providing access to the full programming capacity of the system. Hermle representatives are on hand at the show to answer questions about the new C 650 and other Hermle machining centers.
