Boyce Precision Engineering brings first Hermle C250 to Belfast

Posted 26 June 2017 · Add Comment

Following their recent visit to the Hermle Open House in Gosheim, Southern Germany, Boyce Precision Engineering decided that the Hermle C250 platform provided them with the best route into 5 axis machining.



Boyce Precision Engineering are specialists in bespoke engineering solutions including prototyping and tool and mould production. Launched in 2016, the Hermle C250’s is the ideal platform for the further development of their capabilities.

As with all Hermle machines the three linear axes are contained within the modified gantry design whilst the integrated trunnion provides the rigid and stable platform for the two rotary axes.

George Boyce, managing Director, Boyce Precision Engineering said: "This will be our first 5 axis machine, so it was a big decision for us.  I had extensively researched the options before going ahead but the Open House allowed us to see the machines and how they were built, which gave me the confidence in the quality of the machine. Price and after sales support were also important considerations and on both counts we felt confident in the Geo Kingsbury offering."
