HELLER Lösungen bei Georges Pernoud: Kundenstimme

Giani Cattin

Responsible for the control process at Georges Pernoud

"Indeed, HELLER has often demonstrated in the past mastery of series production. "HELLER's MCH 350-C, however, also shows that it is possible to machine single workpieces, different on each pallet, economically and precisely in continuous operation. "We (...) very much appreciate being able to achieve maximum performance and high torque thanks to the excellent rigidity of the machine and the C-axis in any position or spindle location."
