Hydrostatic guideways explained with Starrag

How does removing metal-to-metal contact help improve machining productivity? Lee Scott of Starrag shares some great insight into advanced hydrostatic guideways that allow for complete control of the displacements of the machine where weight is applied. Standing on the massive 11m table of a vertical mill-turn multi-tasking machine at Starrag’s factory in Bielefeld, Lee describes the working of the metal-oil-metal system that prevents a catastrophic instance of two metallic surfaces binding each other. Watch the video to find out more about hydrostatic guideways around a system that pumps as much oil as there is in over 300 average-sized cars!
