MCµ – THE ULTRA-PRECISE SERIES.

ULTRA-PRECISE MACHINING CENTRES – UNCOMPROMISING IN EVERY DETAIL.

Machines of the MCµ series are designed for ultimate precision and long-term accuracy. Close to µ accuracy and – as always at BW – not just on the day of commissioning, but over many years of use. The MCµ series is no standard machine trimmed for accuracy. The MCµ is based much more on a fundamentally new concept. Because the final µ is the result of many specific individual measures, such as careful design, best materials, strict production methods and very experienced employees. MCµ: Accuracy by design, not compensation.
The result is the most precise machine series we've ever built.

When accurate is not accurate enough.
The MCµ provides tightest geometric tolerances (positioning, flatness, radial eccentricity, concentricity, angularity, repositioning) for the most demanding applications. The basis for long-term accuracy is maximum stability from the ground up. High guide bars, FEM-optimised structures cast from mineral casting material, a thermally inert system and active tempering are examples of the many measures taken. BW's very high degree of vertical integration in all core components is decisive for the successful implementation of such accurate machines.

Quality philosophy
The µ on the finished component depends on many factors: positioning accuracy, machine geometry, tool concentricity, fixture warpage, material characteristics, process sequence, temperature differential and measuring method. Consequently, every component of an MCµ is subject to the tightest tolerances and undergoes special quality assurance measures, just like the finished machine. Finally, comprehensive measurements are taken of every single MCµ.

Employee expertise
The key to successful production of an MCµ lies in the extremely high qualification level of our employees. We have been building high-precision machining centres successfully for almost 60 years now. Our philosophy, calling for continuous optimisation of every component and process, is practised every day in our committed team of perfectionists.

Cost-effectiveness
Cost pressure is leading to fewer and fewer clamping operations, which in turn leads to more complex components. This is significantly increasing the demands on machining, while rapidly reducing the joining component. The MCµ targets mounting rather than adjustment.

Customization
BURKHARDT+WEBER builds highly customised machining centres. The same applies unreservedly to the MCµ series. We have broad expertise in the production of high-precision components, not least due to the high degree of vertical integration with our own precision components, and from many customer projects.
