Hermle becomes Tier One member of Nuclear AMRC
Hermle has been appointed a Tier One member of the Nuclear AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre) at The University of Sheffield’s Rotherham facility. As a consequence, a major addition to the machining resources there is a Hermle C60 U MT. It was delivered in October 2012 by the German manufacturer’s agent in the UK and Ireland, Kingsbury Machine Tools.
The machine is an agile, 5-axis machining centre with turning capability and 150-bar through spindle coolant, capable of working on parts up to 1,200 mm diameter by 900 mm high and 1,400 kg in weight. Applications centre on high-performance machining of large, complex components to high accuracy.
As with all the Nuclear AMRC’s resources, the Hermle centre will be available for collaborative research with members and other companies.
