Precision machining

ALMA driving elements GmbH mainly machines high-grade stainless steels, aluminium and copper, although brass, plastics and other special materials are also processed, depending on the requirements.

Our advanced machine park and the use of superlative-quality materials are important factors in the achievement of product quality, but not the only ones.

All our machining centres can be programmed independently of the machine via SolidCAM, inclusive of machine simulation.

Another essential ingredient is the machining expertise of our skilled and experienced employees who ensure that workpieces are converted in a multitude of work steps into complex and high-grade precision components.

So, far from being the exception, the machining of materials to achieve ultra-precise vacuum sealing surfaces is part of the everyday routine.

Our external CAM system enables us to read in the geometry data of the blank, clamping device and end product etc. independently of the machine, so that we can assure our customers of the highest standards of both productivity and precision.

CNC turning

Our turning shop is equipped with seven CNC and various conventional lathes. They are used for producing precision workpieces with high concentricity up to a diameter of 950 mm.

CNC milling

ALMA has ten advanced CNC milling machines and machining centres that are designed for components ranging from the tiniest part through to workpieces weighing up to 5 t.

Our machine park is currently capable of machining workpieces with the following maximum dimensions: X 5,500 mm, Y 2,300 mm, Z 1,200 mm.

For conventional machining, CNC machining centres are available with magazines for up to 98 tools.

On our modern CNC machining centres, we machine components with workpiece weights ranging from a few grams to several thousand kilograms.

For example, we also have a special CNC machining centre with automatic screw drilling and milling devices with which we can carry out high-precision drilling for our vacuum screw production.
