The highlights of this year’s Open House included the debut of the new Generation 2 models, showcasing extensive automation solutions, and captivating machining demonstrations featuring integrated technology solutions for cost-effective production. The launch of the first three new Generation 2 models – C 650, C 32, and C 42 – marks the beginning of a comprehensive product update at HERMLE. Over the next 18 months, all machine models will transition to the GEN2 architecture as part of a defined development process.

The automation sector, which has been increasingly pivotal at HERMLE for years – with over 50 percent of the company’s products now equipped with automation solutions – showcased its prowess with various robot systems. Alongside extensive storage solutions, the event demonstrated various options for gripping and clamping workpieces, highlighting the flexibility available in machining parts.

The focus remained on components spanning diverse industries, packed with technology solutions. For instance, a wide array of technologies such as power skiving, grinding/dressing, contour smoothing, reverse countersinking, diamond smoothing, simultaneous deburring, interpolation turning, ultrasonic and temperature probes, ACM, and process optimization, were all integrated and demonstrated on one component.

The dedicated stand for these technologies, overseen by the company’s application engineering team, garnered significant interest, emphasizing the importance of integrating new technologies with existing processes. The HERMLE show set-ups, featuring milling and turning of two halves of a globe measuring 800 mm in diameter, and a stainless steel/aluminum spaetzle press, were a hit with visitors. The lineup also featured structural parts for the aerospace industry, numerous dies for tool and mold making, engine parts for the mechanical engineering sector, and implants for medical technology.

As part of a special show featuring over 40 exhibitors, visitors had the opportunity to explore clamping technology, CAD/CAM solutions, and hardware and software for HERMLE machining centers. The company’s Service department, Additive Manufacturing division, and User College effectively showcased the wealth of services provided by HERMLE employees to the visitors.
