It provides a large surface for suction and serves to support the workpieces to be processed. Nesting technology allows optimized processing and cutting of panel materials.

  • For formatting nesting cutting plans on the nesting table.
  • Workpieces can be processed with manually positioned suction cups.
  • The HOLZ-HER nesting table has small matrix dimensions – of only 50 mm – to ensure maximum vacuum flux over the entire table surface.

Well-thought-through workpiece clamping

Variable system of matching workpiece clamps

CNC machining centers are becoming ever more efficient with the use of intelligent software combined with proven technology. One-piece complete production is now the measure of all things. All parts must be produced to the highest quality standards and with all conceivable processes in a single pass. The concept of "more product capability" opens new horizons. In addition, CNC machining also ensures the resurrection of traditional woodworking joints. Where earlier manual methods involved high-cost processes and large tolerances, these days it's only a matter of a few clicks of the mouse and complex joints are created to the highest levels of precision. In this way, mortised frame doors and swallow-tailed connections are being rediscovered.
