Production

  • Cutting-edge production processes and facilities in two independent plants for machine beds made of mineral casting
  • Precision grinding center for high-precision grinding of machine beds, including hard stone beds
  • Complete finishing: The high level of functional integration of the integrally cast components as early as the casting blank stage – e.g. fastening screw threads, media inlets, high casting accuracy – considerably reduces the outlay for subsequent mechanical finishing
  • Temperature-controlled production halls for creating highly accurate precision surfaces using replication technology
  • Cutting-edge PPS system for planning production and logistics processes
  • Efficient use of capacities

System solution

  • Precision assembly of profile rail guides and drive technology
  • Finishing with carriages, table systems, mounting elements, and machine cladding
  • Full wiring, control system, and control cabinet
  • Rump machines
  • Temperature-controlled machine beds
  • Complete, customer-specific, multi-axis positioning and moving systems   

Precision

  • Replication and coating of high-precision assembly surfaces
  • Precision bonding
  • Under casting; Rear casting
  • Filling, integral casting
  • Precision grinding

Material and technology

We manufacture our products using three different materials. We select the most suitable material for you, and the ideal manufacturing technology for your application.

Mineral casting (EPUMENT)

  • High-performance machine bed and construction material based on selected mineral fillers and a high-quality epoxy resin-based binding agent
  • Basis for machine components with impressive properties, diverse range of design possibilities, and clear economic benefits
  • Also available as radiation-absorbing material (EPURAM)

Added value

  • Superior damping
  • Outstanding thermal stability
  • High level of precision
  • High degree of functional integration
  • Attractive and design-oriented
  • Environmentally friendly with outstanding green credentials
  • Excellent availability and short time-to-market

Areas of application

  • Machine beds for all industries
  • Machine components (e.g. traveling columns, gantries, traverses)
  • Radiation protection components (filling with EPURAM)
  • Suitable for small, medium, and large quantities

Ultra-high performance concrete (EPUDUR)

  • Innovative machine bed and construction material based on premium cement with nano-fillers
  • Foundation for machine components with impressive properties, a diverse range of design possibilities, and clear economic benefits

Added value

  • Superior damping
  • Outstanding thermal stability
  • High degree of functional integration
  • High level of precision
  • Attractive and design-oriented
  • Environmentally friendly with outstanding green credentials
  • Excellent availability and short time-to-market

Areas of application

  • Machine beds for all industries
  • Machine components (e.g. traveling columns, gantries, traverses)
  • Suitable for small, medium, and large quantities

Composite constructions (EPUFILL)

  • Steel, welded, metal shell, and cast structures are filled with a vibration-reducing epoxy resin-bonded mineral casting
  • This creates composite structures with long-term stability that also offer an excellent level of static and dynamic rigidity
  • Also available with radiation-absorbing filling material (EPURAM)

Added value

  • Increased dynamic rigidity (damping) in steel, welded, metal shell, and cast constructions
  • Increased static rigidity in steel, welded, metal shell, and cast constructions
  • High level of functional integration
  • Excellent availability and short time-to-market

Areas of application

  • Machine beds for all industries
  • Machine components (e.g. traveling columns, gantries, traverses)
  • Radiation protection components (EPURAM filling)
  • Vibration-damping substructures, e.g. for turbines, combustion engines, test beds, centrifuges
  • Suitable for individual pieces or special parts, and for small to medium quantities
