Engineering – Large Components.
Kolbus has recently invested 1 million euros in a new, cost-competitive and flexible machining centre being installed in its headquarters in Rahden, Germany. The new system replaces an 18-year-old machine.
Frank Bekemeier, head of Mechanical Processing at Kolbus, explains: “This advanced, high-performance CNC machine is engineered for multi-side processing of workpieces up to 4 metres long. The improved dynamics of the new machine mean that processing times are sharply reduced. We are producing faster and more efficiently.”
