The ability to custom process a wide range of materials above and beyond wood is becoming increasingly important, particularly for broad-based workshops. In this context, state-of-the-art CNC 5-axis technology creates unlimited creative flexibility while also significantly reducing acquisition and running costs for special tools and equipment. The Felder Group, based in Hall, Austria, is at LIGNA 2017 in Hannover to show what the future of component manufacturing could look like thanks to personalized workpiece design and fully automatic production with the innovative Format-4 profit H500 CNC machining center.

Right from the very first glance, the completely revamped design of the Format-4 profit CNC machining centers conveys dynamism, power and high-end technology. Yet what really counts is what’s inside, of course - and that, too, is impressive. The high-precision and high-performance 5-axis router spindle of the profit H500 delivers excellent results at every angle, regardless of the material processed. Along with eighteen independent drilling spindles and the integrated groove saw unit, the profit H500 offers virtually unlimited processing options and short production cycles. Combined seamlessly with the specially designed Format-4 software, it thus ensures maximum productivity for any challenge in today’s world of wood and material processing.
