We supply prototypes and dies with a high-precision accuracy of 0.01 to 0.02 mm to Daimler, Audi, Lamborghini and Porsche. And these values are delivered by the new portal milling machine PMG 6000 day after day. The new portal machine is my tenth machine from SORALUCE in the last 20 years. I rely on the product and especially on the technology of the milling heads.  In addition, over the years, a relationship of partnership and consequently blind trust has been built up.
