Anything is possible with StarragHeckert

StarragHeckert is a pioneer in 4 and 5 axis milling technology for the manufacture of complex components such as cylinder crank housing, gearbox housings, cylinder heads, impellers, blisks, aircraft structures and blades. Through our own research and development efforts we have acquired vast experience in the machining of exotic, i.e. difficult-to-cut materials such as titanium, Inconel, Nimonic, high alloy steels and aluminum, whilst reducing cycle times by applying the latest high speed milling techniques. Our sophisticated machining centers are installed as stand-alone units or can be integrated in Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS). StarragHeckert has become a leading supplier of manufacturing systems to the Automotive, Aerospace and Power generation industries.

Reducing Production Costs Keeps Processes In-House
When the Fendt Component production department identified the need to reduce the production costs associated with the development of transmission housings by 50 percent, it realized that failure to meet this target would require outsourcing, resulting in the loss of a considerable number of jobs. A team consisting of a tool manufacturer, a machine supplier and component production specialists met this challenge, with tooling playing an instrumental role.

On The Cusp--Faster Machining Or Finer Surfaces?
According to developers, the main feature of this new milling method is the ability to calculate a cutter location that optimizes the orientation of a milling cutter on the surface to be machined.
