»With AFC and AWL we make things easier for the customer.«

Swiss type machines are great and also easy to operate – the only thing is that tool changes are complicated. There is simply too little space. That is why machine operators need more time and easily make mistakes. That was the reason for developing the AFC. The two-part shank system and the floating mount make tool changes much simpler, faster and above all more precise than before. Besides this, we also took a good look at cooling. AWL sliding heads do not have anymore jumble of hoses. Everything is leak-proof and coolant supply can even be partially cut off if not everything needs to be cooled.
