Horizontal machining centre (HMC) manufacturer, Heller, will be exhibiting at the Farnborough International Airshow (July 22nd – 26th) as part of the Midlands Aerospace Alliance stand in Hall 1.

The UK subsidiary of the German machine tool builder, Heller Maschinenfabrik, based in Redditch, Heller Machine Tools Ltd, which also manufactures selected HMC models at its UK site for global markets, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

There will be much for the company to promote to the aerospace sector at the show, not least its new F 5000 and F 6000 5-axis production centres – although the machines will not be on the stand. Both have a redesigned spindle head that can be equipped with various in-house manufactured spindles to suit machining of anything from aluminium to titanium and nickel superalloys. A pallet changer is also included as standard for first-level automation, enabling easy integration later of a linear or rotary pallet pool.

The 5-axis F 6000 with its 1,000 x 1,000 x 1,400mm working volume will be promoted graphically at Farnborough International Airshow 2024, as will the F 5000 with axis travels of 800 x 850 x 1,100mm

Furthermore Heller’s Services Interface, which provides an intuitive operating concept to ensure transparency in manufacturing, maintenance and service processes throughout the entire lifecycle of the machine, will be promoted at the Farnborough show. Forming part of the manufacturer's 360° solutions offering, the option can help to reduce machine downtime by providing evaluations and statistics.

Visualisation of specific machine status information, including status indicators for axes, spindles or other assemblies, enables users to determine the wear condition of each and take preventive action to reduce unscheduled downtime.

The myHELLER customer portal helps customers to keep track of their entire machine fleet. Spare and wear parts can be ordered quickly and easily, from anywhere and at any time.
