In an unprecedented move to provide potential users of every size and from across all industry sectors with unrivalled levels of technical support – and machine prove-out – Starrag China has opened a technical centre in Shanghai to serve the Swiss-based machine tool solutions provider’s ever-growing customer base throughout China.
As well as housing a number of Starrag machines that are under power to demonstrate their cost-effectiveness and production efficiencies – the new 2,200 m2 Starrag Shanghai TechCenter also offers visitors world-class applications engineering expertise coupled with superlative training for machine operators and programmers so that customers can quickly attain a seamless, integrated route to ‘Engineering precisely what you value’.
The in-situ Starrag LX 051 (for turbine blades) and NB 251 (for impellers and blisks) machines are currently complemented by the multi-axis Bumotec s191 and s181 multi-tasking machining centres – ideal for use in the luxury goods, jewellery, medical and watchmaking industries, for example – as well as a Heckert H50 machining centre which is targeted at a wide range of different parts across varying industrial sectors.
“All over the world, Starrag succeeds not only because of our high-performance machines but also due to the effectiveness of our ‘smart technology solutions’,” says Starrag China’s Managing Director, Tony Liu. “And it is no different in China where, now with the TechCenter, we have created the perfect platform on which to co-operate closely with our customers. Imparting the correct high-level machine operating and manufacturing skills is equally important to us.”
