In July 2017 we delivered the up-to-now biggest size Wimmer machine to a long-standing customer in the Austrian region of Ried. The customer needs this machine to precisely cut to length sensor strips for a high-precision measuring system like the ones that are used in magnetic resonance imaging machines.
The machine has an automatic grinding feed in the Z axis to exactly cut-off work pieces with a diameter of up to 100 mm.
