Precision Lathes

Whether for industry, craftsmen or vocational training – the name WEILER has stood for extremely high quality precision lathes for more than 70 years. With over 140,000 machines installed all around the world, we have become one of Europe’s best known machine tool manufacturers. Our wide range of products includes conventional, servo-conventional, cycle-controlled and CNC precision lathes as well as radial drilling machines.

With a history going back more than seventy years, WEILER has earned itself an excellent reputation in a wide range of industries and applications – from tool and plant manufacture, through manintenance and production to vocational education and training. With over 140,000 units sold, WEILER is currently the market leader for engine lathes and cycle-controlled lathes in German speaking countries.

All WEILER precision lathes are produced in Germany at their headquarters in the northern Bavarian town of Emskirchen, near Nuremberg. In addition to sales, administration, research and development, production and assembly, WEILER has its own air-conditioned measuring laboratory for quality control as well as paint shops and shipment facilities at this site. This means that WEILER is in complete control of all production steps and can, therefore, ensure that their high quality standards are consistently maintained.

ENERGY-EFFICIENT PRECISION LATHES: UP TO 85 % REDUCTION IN STAND-BY POWER CONSUMPTION

Through the conservation of resources during production and saving of energy during everyday operation, WEILER precision lathes are particularly energy efficient. This concept of sustainability accompanies the machine throughout its complete lifecycle – from production through operation to final recycling. All machines are designed to provide easy set-up and maintenance. And the innovative “e-TIM” energy conservation system can, for example, reduce the stand-by power consumption of a large, powerful cycle-controlled lathe by up to 85 percent.

“e-TIM“ MONITORS AND CONTROLS ENERGY CONSUMPTION WITH THREE FUNCTIONS:

1. The drive management system permanently feeds braking energy back into the power grid.
2. Ancilliary devices that are not required for machining are automatically switched off.
3. When the machine comes to a standstill, the machine changes into the standby mode when a previously defined period has elapsed.

ENERGY EFFICIENT PRODUCTION AT WEILER: CO2 EMISSION REDUCED BY A THIRD

– Energy is produced by a photovoltaic system on the roof of the assembly shop
– The excess heat of a biogas plant is fed into the heating system.
– Since 2005, CO2 emissions during production have been reduced by a third
