Milling on a large scale –
CNC machining centres in the transport and logistics industries

CNC machining centres from HG GRIMME SysTech are now an integral part of the transport and logistics industries. Our customers really value having the ability to mill, cut and water-jet quickly, precisely and on a large scale. Our CNC milling machines are used to manufacture the entire fronts of ICE trains – but our all-round equipment can also machine smaller individual parts. For each of our high-tech milling machines can be used in versatile ways for components of all different sizes.

CNC machines in a modular design with individual features

Our CNC machining centres can be configured specifically to suit your needs because they have a modular system and lots of additional options. This provides you with a CNC machining centres that is tailored specifically to the material you wish to process and will thus operate much more efficiently than would be the case with a standard CNC machine. Before we start developing your milling centre, we discuss the details with you to establish requirements such as the amount of space needed, the workpiece size and the properties of the material. We then work with our engineers and use our many different modules and options to configure a customised CNC machining centre that is perfect for your requirements.

Application example: CNC milling centre for the fibreglass front of an ICE high-speed train made from CFRP and GFRP materials

Our HG 5-axis CNC portal tandem milling machine/model making P-T-F/M is used to mill all the required grooves into the component with the best possible milling speed and a perfect feed. The large-scale component is also cut completely to the contour – this gives it a perfect surface finish and it then does not require any more finishing.

The CNC milling centre operates in tandem – this means it has two tables which can be alternately fed with new components. While one component is being machined on the closed and secured table side, the finished milled component can be safely removed and a new component placed on the other table which has been moved out of the machine. As soon as the operator of the machine confirms it has been prepared, the equipped table moves back, the axes with the milling spindle move up to the workpiece and start milling the new component there.

CNC machines in the transport
and logistics industries –
your benefits at a glance

• Shuttle machining with two tables operating in tandem minimises unproductive loading times

• Large components can be machined alternately on the left or right without any downtime

• If tables are linked together, components measuring up to 2,500 x 5,000 x 1,000 mm can be machined on five sides

• Protection from GFRP and CFRP dusts thanks to an enclosed cabin

• To provide a high level of safety for the operators, it is possible to prepare the work tables alternately outside the CNC machining centre
