Material and technology

[Translate to English international (en):]

Mineral casting (EPUMENT)

EPUMENT® mineral casting is a high-tech material that is perfect for the primary machine bed functions, such as precisely securing the geometric position of the individual machine elements, and the static, dynamic, thermal, and acoustic absorption of forces and moments.

Ultra-high performance concrete (EPUDUR)

EPUDUR is an ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) based on the latest generation of premium cements. It has been further developed from Mikrodur technology using nano-structured synthetic silica.

[Translate to English international (en):]

Hard stone (EPUSTONE)

Industrially mined hard stone (commonly known as granite) has been used for several decades for measuring plates, straightness and angle standards, and machine bed components for measuring and high-precision production machinery. Hard stone is an isotropic, homogeneous material that follows Hooke’s law and can be analyzed using linear-elastic FEM modeling.

Composite constructions (EPUFILL)

For four decades, cavities in steel or cast iron machine beds and machine bed components have been filled with epoxy resin-bonded mineral casting. Initially often used to subsequently improve dynamic performance, this has since become a process in its own right.

Services

Engineering

  • Consulting and project design
  • 3D mineral casting (EPUMENT) construction suitable for replication or bonding
  • 3D construction of machine beds as composite structures (EPUFILL)  and from hard stone (EPUSTONE)
  • 3D constructions and dynamic design of moving systems and drives (EPUTRONIC)
  • FEM calculation (static, dynamic, thermal)
  • Optimization of weight, rigidity, and natural frequency

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
