Vertical turning of large workpieces, a major asset!


KARL HUGO's fleet of machinery includes a special unit comprising three vertical CNC lathes for machining workpieces up to 3 metres in diameter.

With its latest generation machinery, KARL HUGO is an all-round player in the field of single-item and short run production machining. “The fact that we have invested over the past five years in the purchase of vertical lathes with tables able to receive items up to 1500 and 3000 mm diameter”, explains KARL HUGO’s CEO & Technical Director, Stephan Hugo “has enabled us to meet the needs of certain key markets, in particular within the energy sector. “ This means that the company is able to produce large sized high-precision parts entirely in-house. Production times are also optimised, insofar as possible, through concurrent working. Finally, KARL HUGO independently works carbon steel, stainless steel and cast iron.
