Sigma Pool partners have merged all activities in the field of cylindrical gear grinding under the roof of Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH in Kempton, Germany.
According to the companys press release, the R&D, production and sales for the OPAL/SIGMAOPAL series will be concentrated under Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH, effective immediately. Customers will have only one contract partner for cylindrical gear grinding over the production range, although existing contracts will be fulfilled by their respective partners.
In addition, future service will tap into a larger knowledge base to secure the most effective customer support. The know-how transfer will be completed at the end of 2006. Klingelnbergs service organization is available unrestricted to customers until that time.
The new concentration underlines the core competence of Liebherr for cylindrical gears. Klingelnberg, formerly Oerlikon, previously covered the market for small- and middle-series production and will now focus exclusively on large-series production.
