Different times, different requirements

FOOKE in the automotive industry

What used to be only possible through great manual skill, is now done to perfection by modern machine tools.

Surface quality and precision - these are the requirements of model, prototype and tool and mold making. Different materials, from rigid foam to alloyed tool steel, must be machined efficiently and reliably on one machine. FOOKE offers high-performance, highly dynamic 5-axis milling machines for this purpose.

Models and prototypes in particular, but also tools and molds, are now machined linearly with the narrowest path distances. Partly in the classic 3+2 operation and increasingly also 5-axis simultaneous. In this type of machining, the programmed feed rate must be kept almost constant and at the same time at the highest level. Maximum rigidity of the machine structure elements and the feed drives are the basis for the best surface qualities and accuracies with outstanding productivity.
