Company Profile

Handtmann CNC Technologies, Inc. is an affiliate company of the German machine tool manufacturer Handtmann A-Punkt Automation GmbH. With its principal office located in East Dundee, Illinois, Handtmann CNC Technologies has been the Handtmann subsidiary for the North American market since 2001.

Machining centers for all your applications:
Handtmann has been one on the world's leading manufacturers of 5-axis HSC/HPC machining centers for almost 30 years. Our machines are as different as the requirements of our customers. Thanks to modular machine concepts, we do not just cover a wide range of different applications, but we are also able to meet the specific needs of individual applications and we can find the ideal solution for your machining requirements. Handtmann machining centers are used in a wide range of different industries (aerospace, curtain wall, mold and die, automotive, metal construction, energy and many more) and offer unique versatility for many different applications in terms of type, form, size, complexity and machining strategy when cutting materials such as composites, aluminum, steel and titanium. We cover the whole workpiece spectrum from small parts with a size from approx. 50 mm (approx. 2 in) diameter up to large parts with dimensions of approx. 47,000 x 7,000 mm (approx. 1,850 x 276 in). 5-axis HSC/HPC machining centers from Handtmann are the perfect solution for cutting applications that demand productivity, precision and reliability. 5-axis simultaneous machining and complete machining of parts in as few set-ups as necessary provide for significantly reduced cycle times. Additional automation for even less non-productive time are further major factors to increase productivity.

Handtmann is offering four product lines with different machine series within each line:

  • Horizontal machining centers HBZ (HBZ Trunnion, HBZ CompactCell, HBZ AeroCell)
  • Profile machining centers PBZ (PBZ SC, PBZ NT, PBZ HD)
  • High moving portal machining centers GANTRY (GANTRY HD, GANTRY SD)
  • Universal machining centers UBZ (UBZ HD, UBZ SD)

Member of a strong group with global presence:
As a member of the family-run Handtmann Group with over 3,600 employees worldwide, Handtmann interacts closely with its own branches (USA, Russia, China) as well as sales and service centers worldwide. The technological know-how with development, design, programming and assembly of the 5-axis machining centers is located in Baienfurt in Upper Swabia, Germany in order to guarantee the high quality standard "made in Germany".

Lived values, close cooperation:
Cooperation is one of the main guiding principles at Handtmann A-Punkt. Whether between customers, technical departments or suppliers: lived values promote good and reliable collaboration based on trust. In this way, we produce the best possible solution for you and realize "ideas for the future".

A Message from Handtmann CNC Technologies, Inc.

HBZ AeroCell: Maximum material removal rates in large aluminium structural parts

High speed cutting Production of large aluminium structural parts demands one thing above all: high-performance machining with high material removal rates.

HBZ CompactCell: Compact and powerful for aluminium workpieces up to 4,000 x 1,000 mm

Powerful and dynamic High cutting power in aluminium with compact machine footprint: the HBZ CompactCell horizontal machining centre is the perfect solution for meeting these demands.

HBZ Trunnion: Powerful 5-axis machining of a wide range of materials with an interference contour up to 1,700 mm

Flexibility and high performance Today, modern production demands machining centres that are not just precise and productive but also flexible.

PBZ HD: High-performance profile machining for demanding applications with highest chip removal rates

Stable and powerful profile machining The PBZ HD profile machining centre offers high material removal rates up to 6.5 l/min when cutting aluminium profiles and solid material as well as stable and precise machining.

PBZ NT: Profile machining centre for flexible and powerful 6-side HSC complete machining

High precision and performance 6-side profile machining with high accuracy as well as outstanding flexibility?

PBZ SC: Profile machining centre with dynamic pendulum operation for maximum productivity

Loading and unloading parallel to production Do you want to reduce expensive non-productive times without installing additional automation?

GANTRY SD: Stable and powerful 5-axis machining of large and heavy workpieces

Stability for powerful machining Vertical high performance cutting (HPC) of aluminium and particularly heavy-duty cutting of steel and titanium mean that a rigid and stable machine design is essential.

GANTRY HD: Highly dynamic 5-axis machining of large, light workpieces

Highly dynamic and precise The machine design of the GANTRY HD is clearly tailored for highly-dynamic 5-axis simultaneous machining of composites and high-speed cutting (HSC) of light alloys such as aluminium.

UBZ SD: Powerful high-performance aluminium machining and heavy-duty cutting up to 12,000 x 2,000 mm

High performance in aluminium, steel and titanium Heavy-duty cutting of steel and titanium with high torque and HPC machining of aluminium with high power and maximum speeds ensure benchmark performance for 5-axis simultaneous machining with the UBZ SD, depending on spindle configuration.

UBZ HD: Dynamic 5-axis machining of light workpieces up to 12,000 x 2,000 mm

Highly dynamic machining of composites and aluminium The UBZ HD universal machining centre offers optimum performance for machining tasks in composites and high-speed cutting (HSC) in aluminium.
