In the CNC milling center at NOMOS Glashütte: Circular blanks are the round brass discs from which various movement parts are milled—base plates, plates, cocks, or bridges. This machine can process 40 blanks at a time, which takes between two and eight hours each. The machine automatically reloads new blanks and repeatedly changes the tools during machining: Milling cutters, drills, taps—around 200 instruments wait in a magazine to be used. Later, the blanks are washed and stripped, i.e. deburred and polished by hand.
