On a snowy Wednesday last week, FERMAT’s intrepid film crew journeyed to the industrial heartland of modern machine tool manufacturing, to FERMAT’s main factory in Brno, Czech Republic. Aside from fine camaraderie and great gadgetry, the easygoing visit also offered superb insight into the various parts and procedures required to build the very best automatic milling heads on the market.
The video leads you through the process of manufacturing a FERMAT automatic milling head, from its separate components and measurement tests to final assembly and vetting. Brief descriptions of the operations accompany the various stages, from start to finish. And, we have great t-shirts!
Power and Precision
Once produced, all the individual parts going into a FERMAT automatic milling head are sent to a measuring room where eagle-eyed technicians check the parameters of the components, verifying they meet all the stringent guidelines in accuracy. Accurate parts help determine the precision of the milling head.
More measurements, final assembly, and test run
Another set of measurements is performed on the spindle, spinning it and making sure it’s perfectly balanced, and vibrations are at an absolute minimum.
All the components are assembled by hand, crafted to fit excellently for smooth, powerful and precise milling. Attention is given to every detail. Then, once it’s assembled, the automatic milling head’s tested one more time on a horizontal boring mill to make sure it’s running without a hitch, absolutely flawlessly. Afterwards, it’s packaged and shipped to the customer.
