Increase your process reliability with optical insert measurement

In cooperation with Conoptica we can now offer inline and automated optical insert measurement. To make very accurate profiles (< 1 µm) not only the machine accuracy is important, but also the position and degree of wear of the insert. Guessing of the condition and position of the insert creates scrap and repeated measurement of [...]

50 years of hydrostatics. And how higher demands forces you to look beyond your current capabilities.

As we mentioned in our previous news article, Hembrug had already sold more than 20,000 precision machines before 1969 with conventional bearings. These worked in a range of just 1/100 mm and met the accuracy requirements of the time perfectly. IBM's application for memory drives in 1968, with a surface requirement of 0.025 µm, forced [...]

50 years of hydrostatic and how it all started

50 years of hydrostatics In 1969, exactly 50 years ago, Hembrug introduced it's first machine with a hydrostatic main spindle.
