Chen has successfully enter the markets of more than 40 countries worldwide. Whenever industry customers are experiencing high technical difficulties, complex tasks, Honor Seiki is the first candidate in mind for solution, and a model manufacturing expert in the Taiwan vertical lathe production industry.
It is worth mentioning that Honor Seiki followed success from entering the global aerospace, military defense, energy development, and wind power and other high-end industries, and recently have secured Europe’s largest manufacturer of high-speed rail train wheels vertical lathe big purchase order of US$ 5 million. Shipments are expected to start going out in 2015 and enter the production line of European high-speed rail wheel.

Honor Seiki’s latest CNC gantry milling, grinding machining center PL-350CM, standing 3.5 meters high, is the largest machine tool ever assembled. Though it comes with a heavy price tag, it is made ideal for the mining, petroleum, wind power, large-scale processing equipment and other industry. Because of the most advanced full stroke Y-axis milling machine runs with a higher accuracy then the industry average.
