Machining

Machining large welded steel structures and other hard materials is our specialty.

High-quality machining process lays the foundation for machine assembly and functionality. We have a great number of machines for executing various types of machining. Large steel elements can be machined with our special machinery, e.g. vertical lathe and horizontal boring mills. 

Machinery

Our machining equipment includes a Mori Seiki NH8000 DCGII horizontal CNC machining center, a Wotan 150 horizontal boring mill and a Strömberg XTAG-6.2 vertical lathe, which gives us the capabilities to do all the machining needed for large steel structures.

Horizontal CNC Machining Center Mori Seiki

With our 100-piece Mori Seiki NH8000 DCGII horizontal CNC machining center we can perform a wide variety of machining tasks, such as milling, drilling, and lathing, on special materials. Our professional machinists are experts in programming Mori Seiki equipment and the machining center has been tailored to Makron’s needs and to the level of precision we require. It gives us an accuracy of a first class 0.001 degrees in the center of the table. Thanks to its high fidelity, the Mori Seiki is an especially good, cost-effective tool for small series machining. Working with the Mori Seiki is precise and efficient because the machine operates to exact measurements and the tools have an integrated memory, which means the settings move with the tool to the next machining point. This means that there’s no need to manually set up the machine. All the piece palettes have zero-point mounting systems so that the machine detects the piece it is working on when the piece is attached properly.
