More than 50 years mastering hydrostatic technology
In 1969 Hembrug launched its first machine with a hydrostatic main spindle. IBM requested the turning of memory discs with 0,5 µm high-precision form and 0,025 µm Ra surface finish.
Since Hembrug’s conventional lathes did not achieve this accuracy, a special machine with an in-house hydrostatic main spindle was developed.
With the decision in the 60s, the foundations were laid for the current generation of the Hembrug Mikroturn® hard turning and Danobat grinding machines.
It has been more than 50 years since we first used hydrostatic technology.
Watch this video to discover some application examples where hydrostatic technology is used and find out the advantages of applying it in a machine tool.
