Starrag and KOSO Kent Introl use their heads to open the floodgates to single set-up valve savings

Heckert DBF

KOSO Kent Introl’s latest investment in the Starrag Group’s Heckert 630 DBF horizontal machining centre is paying big dividends in the machining of valve bodies, not least because the machine’s ability for single set-up, multi-tasking machining – milling, turning and drilling - has eliminated the need for two separate machines, and all the associated re-setting and queuing times, to produce finished workpieces.
