USE CASES

Our parallel kinematic machine tools can be used in many different ways and can be customised. This is why our machines and production approaches are highly innovative and at the same time offer a high creative potential. This is of course on the one hand due to the special spindle movement provided by the rod kinematics and on the other hand due to the integration variety of manufacturing processes and machine configurations (stationary or mobile).

As you can see already in the production technology milling, it is possible to machine or produce most different materials and component forms with the Metrom machine. In particular, we are superior to conventional machine tools in the production of highly complex components with possibly free-form surfaces.

Our mobile machine is ideally suited for flexible processing and repair purposes. The mobile machine can be installed horizontally or vertically and the machine frames can be adapted according to the application or component size. This makes it possible to repair or machine large containers or turbine shafts. Our machines are hybrid applicable. This means that in the case of a repair, for example, an unfinished flange can be repaired additively and the finishing can be carried out subtractively in one machine. This hybrid machining is mainly applicable in aerospace technology, shipbuilding, tool and container construction and offshore or onshore plants (look at WAAM technology).
