General mechanical manufacturing – Focus on cost pressures
Whether for machinery or equipment manufacturing, tool or mold making, construction or machinery for the consumer goods sector: machining is a core discipline everywhere. The user must frequently be able to respond very flexibly to changing requirements and workpieces. This makes the evaluation of production machinery especially demanding. While the 5-axis machine not infrequently appears to be the best solution after cursory consideration, something different is frequently found to be the case upon closer consideration: a 3-axis standard machine complemented with a 4th or 4th/5th axis when necessary. In this way, the user is frequently not only much more flexible, he can also machine a considerably wider range of workpieces, needs less space and on top of it all pays less. Many solutions using pL LEHMANN confirm this.
