A new vertical spindle machining center in order to replace the old obsolete machine.

TALBO is a Moroccan SME leader in the façade, aluminium, wood and metal joinery sectors in Morocco.TALBO enjoys an international reputation in its field, combining high quality materials, competent personnel and the most efficient technical tools.

To modernise its machining unit, the company decided to replace two “conventional” machine tools used for milling operations with a new vertical spindle machining centre.

For this new investment, the company turned to the Green Value Chain facility for financing and technical assistance.

With this new machine, all control information is processed in the form of a sequentially executed program. The response times of such commands are in the region of ten microseconds, thus allowing significant productivity gains.

This new generation vertical spindle machining centre has an electrical power of 10 kW, and a rotation speed of 7,500 revolutions per minute (rpm), which is 65% faster than the conventional machine tools used previously, thus allowing considerable time savings as well as electrical energy savings of 39% and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 11.15 tCO2eq per year.
