Multistation is now selling machines from the german manufacturer METROM offering multi-optional and mobile machining systems based on parallel kinematics.
The german manufacturer whose factory is located near Chemnitz is building machines fitted with 5 axis parallel kinematics for more than eighteen years. More than fifty multi-optional machines are used by industries or research institutes for a very wide variety of applications that reach from milling to turning, laser welding and friction stir welding as well as 3D-printing. There are plenty of different applications: turbine elements machining, complex shapes for foundry or injection molds, large composite or steel structures… These systems are able to machine a whole part with only one clamping with a very high productivity rate because of accelerations up to 1m/s² and 7-axis interpolation. The machine is able to remove up to 600 cm3/min in steel. High speed machining, hard milling and turning, wet or dry….systems designed by Metrom are multi-functional. This is possible due to the high stiffness of the icosahedra structure. A patented basis of parallel kinematic module sizes leads to customer specific solutions at an affordable prize.
