New possibilities

for creative people

METROM was founded 20 years ago with an invention: the Pentapod CNC Machines. A machine that combines elements of a robot and a conventional machine tool. Thanks to a great team of young engineers, we manage to build high tech machines for machining and 3D printing. These can be used in industries such as automotive, oil and gas, marine, mining, medical, containers, offshore and onshore, construction or foundries. With a bit of creativity and confidence you can make your series production or manufacturing faster, more accurately and more flexible. As the daughter of the inventor, I would like to carry this innovation and vision forward with full conviction and passion.

CNC Machines

for five axis machining

cnc machines

Experience 5-axis machining as you have never seen it before. The unique Pentapod design allows dynamic CNC machining while maintaining high accuracy. But this is also due to the icosahedron construction, which brings this high stiffness of the machines. There are two machine series, the P-Series and PM Series.

This is where we stand out from conventional machine tools. Until now, the machining concept was given that the workpiece is moved to the tool on a machine table. We have turned the whole thing around and, for 5-axis machining, only one movement of the entire spindle is required. On the one hand, this enables high machining dynamics, since only the weight of the machine spindle is moved and not the component, which usually weighs more. On the other hand, this five-strut structure of the machine is a parallel kinematic system, which allows us to tilt the spindle up to 90 degrees on one side.

This allows the CNC machinist new production possibilities and manufacturing strategies.  When this is combined with a rotary table, a complete part can be produced with 6 axis machining. The whole thing can still be equipped with a linear axis of the machine table to enable a 7 axis machining.

CNC Machining Center

The first CNC machine series is a closed system similar to a classic machine tool or machining center. The P-Series machining centers from METROM are characterised by their compact and flexible design. The modular design of the machines and the parallel kinematics enable cost-effective and fast adaptation to special customer requirements and the development of a total solution for special applications. Design your production with our P-Series and you will benefit from high performance and durable machines.

CNC Mobile Machine

Imagine combining the flexibility of an industrial robot with the accuracy of a machine tool. Does that sound impossible?
Thanks to the modular design of Metrom machines, we have succeeded in developing a PM Series. The icosahedron shape with parallel kinematics and spindle is detached from the carrier unit. This means that the machine can be set up in any horizontal or vertical direction without great effort. Here you benefit from high CNC machining accuracy in mobile applications.

Additive manufacturing

with machine tool

Our CNC milling machines are unique from the beginning due to the parallel kinematics. But a few years ago we took another big innovative step – the integration of additive manufacturing in our CNC machines. After intensive development work, we have found suitable processes for metal and plastic 3D printing respectively: WAAM and SEAM. Now hybrid manufacturing (subtractive and additive) is possible in combination with our 5-axis machines. This results in completely new manufacturing approaches and solutions for users to increase their production in terms of material, time and energy efficiency.

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing

The WAAM process is based on the arc wire buildup welding already known in welding technology. As in filament printing, a medium (metal wire) is melted at the nozzle tip and deposited as a layer. The great advantage of the WAAM process is the high deposition rate and thus the fast build-up of a component.
In our machines, the welding torch is mechanically adapted to the milling spindle. The movement of the torch is carried out by the CNC control. The welding torch is automatically deposited in the machine. The generated component can thus be automatically machined by means of intermediate or final milling. The great advantage: both processes are mapped in one machine and the component does not have to be reclamped.

Screw Extrusion Additive Manufacturing

The SEAM process was developed at the Fraunhofer Institute and is one of the most innovative 3D printing processes for generating industry-relevant plastic components. The SEAM tool is basically a plastic extruder, which is able to output 8kg/h.
As with FDM printing, the component is generated layer by layer. The extrusion unit is automatically exchanged in our CNC machines and deposited in a tool station. Thanks to the parallel kinematics, we are able to print on already existing components with free forms. By the automated change to a milling cutter or drill a fast subtractive finishing in the same workpiece clamping is possible.
