Ultra High Precision Machining Centre Nanoform 250 Ultragrind

Model: 
Nanoform 250 Ultragrind

The equipment is a machining centre that is specifically designed to facilitate the ultra-precision fabrication of free-form surfaces of complex components with ultra-fine surface finish. The inclusion of a servo tool for diamond turning and incorporation of high speed grinding spindle provide a unique feature for this machining centre. This provides a cutting edge technology for the production of high precision and complex components for various types of industries: aerospace, automotive, electro-optical systems, ophthalmic market, medical implants and bio-sensors. The integration of high-speed air-bearing spindles and hydrostatic oil slideways with an ultra-accurate control system having very fine control resolution makes this machine one of the most accurate machining centre in the world.
