Off to Luxembourg to visit the Dynamic Duo!

April 22, 2016  

Well, not quite.  Actually, it’s Luxemburg, Wisconsin.

Luxemburg, Wisconsin

And, the Duo is one of FERMAT’s incredible creations, a double-headed monster, a gigantic floor type CNC horizontal boring machine, the WRF 160 DUO CNC.  It’s two columns (Y axes surging 5 meters high), each wielding a powerful headstock, machine with ferocity, independently, on one X axis bed 27 meters long, equipped with floor plates and CNC rotary tables securing gargantuan workpieces.

Holy Smokes! It's FERMAT's WRF 160 DUO CNC... in Luxemburg, Wisconsin

For maximum stability, FERMAT enclosed the headstock within the column frame, allowing the DUO to tear away at immense workpieces without being knocked aside. Each spindle diameter is 160 mm of raw fury; and, with a combined ram + spindle travel of 2.5 meters, it rips deep into the center of heavy iron or steel.  It angrily feasts upon the workpiece, clawing and cutting with tremendous energy.  It is extreme, powerful and precise.  Especially, when it’s fitted with FERMAT’s own, in-house universal micro indexing automatic milling head (UHAmi30).
