For the third time in a year X2E GmbH invests in the machinery for the Development Center Kandel.
The new DATRON M8Cube high-performance milling machine allows precision parts – from prototypes to series production – to be produced even faster. With up to 60,000 revolutions per minute, faster machining of the workpieces is ensured with consistently high precision.
The new machine is used in particular for housing production and front plate processing. But heatsinks and other thin-walled lightweight components for the Automotive and Aerospace & Defense business segments will also be manufactured on the machine.
In addition to the DATRON M8Cube, a DATRON neo, a Trotec laser engraving machine and a LeCroy oscilloscope have recently been acquired. In addition, the purchase of a new production line with stencil printer, placement system, selective soldering system and loading and unloading station is planned for 2019.
Dr. Karlheinz Weiss on the company’s vertical integration strategy: “By expanding our production capacities, we remain largely independent of supplier products. This enables us to develop products faster, react flexibly to customer requirements and avoid delivery bottlenecks. “
