»In the past, HELLER has demonstrated that the company is able to master high-volume production. HELLER's MCH 350-C proves that machining of individual and diverse workpieces on each pallet can be accomplished at high economic efficiency and precision in continuous operation. We particularly like (...) the high stiffness of the machine and C axis so that maximum power and torque are available at any spindle position.« Giani Cattin, responsible for the control process
