OUR EXPERTISE

100 YEARS | 4 GENERATIONS DEDICATED
TO PRECISION AND INNOVATION

Affolter, 100 ans, 4 générations aux services de la précision et de l'innovation

To help us meet your demands for customisation and flexibility, we devise spindle motors – the very heart of the machine – and develop our own AFFOLTER CNC Leste numerical control, which delivers unbeatable dynamism, speed, and precision.

Over the years, specific loading and gripping systems have complemented our products, while options intended to make production more autonomous, such as the feeding and discharge of parts, have helped increase production volumes and speeds.

We also develop and make specific tools for loading, gripping,
and extraction purposes, such as:

  • Driving center

  • Gripper

  • Loading head

  • Push-part

  • Drum

  • Feedind rail

  • Oil impulse tank

  • Oil impulse feeding rail

The cutting tool is held on a milling spindle, with parts held in place between cleats or gripped tight. On the AFFOLTER AF110 plus machine, the gripping forced is controlled and set electronically as part of the program for the part.
