Klingelnberg to Introduce New Products at Control in Stuttgart
April 22, 2015
Klingelnberg will unveil the P 16, a new solution for efficient measurement of small components, at Control Stuttgart 2015. From May 5-8, the system supplier will present a round of talks at its stand in Hall 1/1418, which will cover its entire range of products and services.
At Klingelnberg's “regular spot” in Hall 1/1418, the system supplier's entire range will be represented. The five big segments – “gear measurement,” “shop-floor measurement,” “dimension, form, and position measurement,” “measured value analysis,” and the segment covering Klingelnberg's wide range of services – will together share a presentation space of 220 m2.
A product novelty making its debut appearance this year is a new precision measuring center designed for small workpieces. With the P 16, the P 26 now has a “younger sibling,” that completes the product range for measuring the smallest workpieces.
“With the P 16, we are offering a machine based on the tried-and-true qualities of the P series, but which comes in below the P 26 in terms of footprint,” said Dr. Christof Gorgels, division manager for measuring instrument construction.
Because the P 16 is based on P series technology, all software application programs are compatible.
The P 16 owes its compact size to a modification: Thanks to a newly developed workpiece clamping system which is optimally adapted to accommodate small workpieces, there is no need for a counter support. This allowed Klingelnberg to design a relatively small machine.
“The workpiece mounting of small components is often accomplished using a chuck,” said Georg Mies, head of measuring machine development at Klingelnberg “For this reason, we developed for the P 16 an innovative electrical clamping system that has been integrated into the workpiece axis. This clamping system is suitable both for circular and cylindrical components and for mounting short shafts.”
With the new precision measuring center, Klingelnberg is targeting areas in which the demands for precision in volume production are becoming increasingly stringent
“The P 16 is specifically tailored for the requirements of small components, particularly those required in the automotive, power tools, pumps, e-mobility and small drives market segments,” said Mies.
