Heckert Large Athletic Series

Heckert Large Athletic Series

by accelerating your manufacturing processes thanks to complete machining in a single set-up.

by keeping your non-productive time – such as tool change, spindle speed-up, pallet changing and B-axis positioning – to a minimum, resulting in faster turnaround times and increased productivity.

thanks to the high rigidity of our machines. This ensures the highest quality and productivity over decades and it allows you to increase chip removal, which reduces your cutting time.


Huge, modular and flexible

The flexible and modular-designed Heckert Large Athletic Series guarantee optimum results in the economic processing of large-sized and heavy workpieces with an edge length of up to 3,300 mm and up to 13,000 kg in all material qualities.

Available in 4- and 5-axis versions
