HS-F 3000

The solution for efficient surface processing of steel samples- The milling machine with all options for perfect analysis results

Area of application

Milling of steel, pig iron samples for OES, XRF, combustion analysis and other analytical procedures

Steel, pig iron samples, diameter up to 50mm, round or with parallel surfaces

Operation mode
Automatic, standalone, linear automation, robot automation


Specially designed for sample preparation and quality control
The automatic processing cycle ensures extremely fast and reproducible results. Milling parameters optimally adjustable to material grades, combined with a variety of application matched tools, ensure the maximum degree of flexibility. Operation in three-axis-mode (option) enables deburring of samples.

Safe and operator-friendly
The HS-F 3000 is sealed and sound-insulated. Safety circuits guarantee protection for the operating personnel. Milling swarf is collected in a removable collecting tray. Easy machine set up due to operator friendly interfaces developed for the operation in chemical laboratories.

Milling spindle with automatic tool changing system
The precision milling spindle can be fitted with milling cutters for a wide variety of steel grades. The automated tool changing system (option) allows the machine with up to six different tools without the need for operator intervention. The extremely sturdy spindle bearings allow safe, sustained processing of even the hardest material grades. A third axis (option) for highest requirements in sample surface preparation and for deburring of oval, square, round and double thickness samples.

Stored program controller
The integrated Simatic S7 PLC controller guarantees an error-free automatic processing of the widest possible variety of samples. Up to 18 programs defined by parameters, can be saved and protected by a password.

Milling cutters
The system is designed to allow the use of special milling cutters and different cutter materials, optimally matched to a wide variety of material grades. Tool life times are monitored. Tool change and maintenance intervals are displayed on the machine control panel.

Cost reduction through automation
The machine has been designed to enable easy integration into robot-based automation systems as well as into standard linear systems. The focus of the development engineering of the HERZOG sample milling machine was on the mechanical connections and electronic interfaces. Extremely short processing times and smooth, coordinated operating sequences round off the automation concept.
