Identification

The Micro5 is a 5-axis micro-milling machine that consumes 60 times less energy that can be used in small and clean smartfactories.

The Micro5 is based on a 5-axis milling machine as it is one of the most common machines used in the manufacturing industry. The machine can produce anything that fits in a bloc of material of 50 mm3, perfect for any watch components for example. It takes little space in the production facilities, it is silent, consumes sixty times less energy without losing any milling speed or precision. One of the main advantages of Micro5 is that it does not heat up as it uses ambient cool down. This is in great contrast to other milling machines that can heat up to dangerous levels.
