Hermle Machine Co.’s C 42 machining center will feature the company’s HS Flex work handling system. The handling system is said to be a powerful and compact automation tool that fits both the company’s Performance-Line machining centers and High-Performance-Line models. A flat mineral casting bed holds three axes of the handling unit and offers ergonomically convenient access for the operator.

The system also functions as a storage module, with one module installed as standard and an optional second module available. The modules are structured as a rack, offering customization in the pallet/workpiece arrangement. Up to four rack shelves can be ordered with a total ranging to 20 pallet storage spaces per module, providing up to 40 pallet storage spaces when two modules are installed.

Also on display is the C 650 machine model, the largest machine on the company’s Performance-Line series.
