HS-FF 2000 is the milling machine for automatic, analysis-ready preparation of iron and steel samples for spectral analysis. The automatic processing cycle ensures extremely fast and reproducible results.

Optimal Sample preparation assure optimal analysis results
Milling parameters optimally adjustable to all material grades, combined with a variety of application-matched tools, ensure the maximum degree of flexibility.

Safe and operator-friendly
The HS-FF 2000 is hermetically sealed and sound-insulated. Safety circuits guarantee protection for the operating personnel. The large safety hood enables easy access for operation and maintenance. Milling swarf is collected in a removable collector tray.

Milling spindle
Two independently operated precision milling spindles can be fitted with milling cutters for various material grades. There is no need to change cutters when changing from steel to iron and vice versa. The extremely sturdy spindle bearings allow safe, sustained processing of even the hardest material grades. Tool change is quick and easy – without the need of any special tools.

Stored program controller with 16 standard processing programs
The integrated Simatic S7 SPC controller guarantees an error-free, automatic processing of the widest possible variety of samples. Up to 16 programs, defined by parameters, can be saved and protected by password.

The processing steps:
Alignment and clamping of the sample Selection of milling cutter 1 or milling cutter 2 runs automatically Feed speed, milling depth and cutting speed can be set as program parameters at the control panel Separate programs for automatic deburring of round calibration samples are available in conjunction with a special milling head.

Milling cutters
The system is designed to allow the use of special milling cutters and different cutter materials, optimally matched to all material grades. Tool life times are monitored. Tool change and maintenance intervals are displayed on the machine control panel.

Cost reduction through automation
The machine has been designed to enable easy integration into robot-based automation systems. The focus of the development engineering of the HERZOG sample milling machine was in the mechanical connections and electronic interfaces. Extremely short processing times and smooth, coordinated operating sequences round off the automation concept.
