408PA Production unit high precision


New 5-axis machine for watchmakers

In Baselworld Willemin-Macodel will unveil a world premiere – the new simultaneous 5-axis machining
center type 408PA. This machine has been designed to machine parts of watch movements.

The 408PA machine allows working with raw strips of 200 mm, which is a definite advantage in terms of
costs of raw material for the customer, since this system avoids investing in trays traditionally used for the
machining of base plates. The 408PA not only significantly reduce production costs, but also increase
accuracy. The ingenious design of this machine allows machining of parts in one clamping, including side
machining. Double-sided machining is an essential element in search for accuracy and compliance with the
demanded tolerances.

Some advantages of the machine:

  • Simple clamping of parts
  • Cost reduction on rough material
  • Shorter machining time
  • Reduced set-up time
  • Operational autonomy
  • Automatic unloading of fully-machined parts
