The company is owned by the Timmermans in southern Netherlands. As Arjan Timmermans says the purchase of a new horizontal boring machine from Fermat was a strategic decision. “In our region there is a quite big competition in turning and milling small parts, but not in machining of larqe and heavy workpices. We thought it was a gap on the market and later we knew we were right“, says Mr. Timmermans. With Fermat floor type horizontal boring mill WRF 130 we are able to provide machining of workpices 8x3,5m (315”x138”) up to 25 tons (55116 lb). Many local customer had to request the maching of such large parts out of our region, now we are able to offer a wide machining range from small parts to large pieces and meet both customer requirements. Thanks to Fermat we are able to keep competitive hour rates, explains Arjan Timmermans. The Fermat horizontal boring mill is used for machining of high quality steel, duplex, super duplex and inconel. These are the materials demanding a sturdy construction&accuracy of the machine. „We reach the accuracy 0,05mm (0,002“) in 8 metres (315“), within a smaller lenght even 0.01mm (0,0003“),“ say the owners.
