K&B turns to Starrag for advanced manufacturing cell

As the Advanced Manufacturing Division of the business has grown, so has the need for automated machine tool solutions to maximize efficiency. To deliver maximum productivity, efficiency and component quality, we've invested in two Heckert HEC 800 X5 5-axis machine tools from Starrag.

The two Heckert HEC 800 X5 mill/turn centers will be dedicated to machining aluminum UHV components for wafer fabrication equipment in the semiconductor industry. Initially, we will be running four different part numbers through the machines every week with typical batch sizes ranging from seven to 16 pieces. We will then ramp up this four-part number portfolio soon after the initial implementation stage.
