The Kapp Group has introduced a combined process for hard finishing transmission gears that involves two machines?one for grinding and the other for honing via Kapp?s patented process.
According to the company?s press release, the two machines are coupled together. The KX300P has dressing for worms, dressing for form wheels, uses either CBN-plated worms or CBN-plated form wheels and also features on-board inspection and integrated balancing.
The CX250 is a Coroning machine designed as a mirror image of the KX300P. This machine uses the single layer plated diamond-coated coroning rings, which makes the set-up time shorter. The process does not include dressing.
Motors and pumps are identical and compatible, as are the control and the human machine interfaces.
