Starrag China’s new Shanghai technical centre enables customers to Engineering precisely what you value
The new Starrag TechCenter in Shanghai already has impressive figures for the official opening. Five machine tools are already permanently installed on an area of 2,200 m² in order to present application and mechanical engineering know-how to customers.
In an unprecedented move to provide potential users of every size and from across all industry sectors with unrivalled levels of technical support – and machine prove-out – Starrag China has opened a technical centre in Shanghai to serve the Swiss-based machine tool solutions provider’s evergrowing customer base throughout China.
As well as housing a number of Starrag machines that are under power to demonstrate their cost-effectiveness and production efficiencies – the new 2,200 m2 Starrag Shanghai TechCenter also offers visitors world-class applications engineering expertise coupled with superlative training for machine operators and programmers so that customers can quickly attain a seamless, integrated route to Engineering precisely what you value.
The in-situ Starrag LX 051 (for turbine blades) and NB 251 (for impellers and blisks) machines are currently complemented by the multi-axis Bumotec s191 and s181 multi-tasking machining centres – ideal for use in the luxury goods, jewellery, medical and watchmaking industries, for example – as well as a Heckert H50 machining centre which is targeted at a wide range of different parts across varying industrial sectors.
These machines are all under power for demonstrations as well as for test cutting, with Starrag China applications engineers on hand to share their experience in getting the best from each machine and process. Indeed, the applications engineers will also be available to provide insights into the benefits of Starrag’s worldclass processes and technologies – such as the Integrated Production System – to permit unrivalled end-toend manufacturing gains. The Starrag NB151 blisk machine and the Starrag STC1250 and Heckert X40 machining centres will be installed, to support these with additional engineers and operators, therefore giving visitors to the TechCenter a comprehensive insight into the wide-ranging capabilities of the Starrag product ranges.
