Magnesium castings frequently undergo additional machining steps, such as milling, spindling or thread-cutting on state-of-the-art high-speed machines. Manufacturing systems developed and built by STIHL are also used in this area. As in other process stages, exceptionally high standards are met with these special-purpose machines.
STIHL's competence in machining magnesium is reflected in the array of machines, with HSC and CNC machine tools and systems built by leading manufacturers. Efficient production and consistently high quality standards are guaranteed by machining lines, as well as by facilities for series production and special-purpose machines.
High speed machining centres
Equipped with a large variety of tools, numerous steps can be performed in direct succession with a single chucking and without expensive tool changes. Flexible mounts permit all-round machining of the diecast components.
