IMTS Preview: Klingelnberg
August 5, 2014
Klingelnberg (Booth N-6837) will once again be exhibiting its grinding machines for bevel gears and cylindrical gears and its precision measuring technology at IMTS. Visitors to the event will be able to see four machines in action including:
The adaptable Höfler Viper 500 gear grinding machine is designed for component diameters of up to 500 mm, and is suited for both the smallest and the largest lot sizes. It is available in three different configurations, depending on your individual requirements: Profile grinding (Viper 500), small grinding wheels and multiple-wheel technology (Viper 500 K), and generation grinding (Viper 500 W). Users with frequent product changes in particular will find that the flexible machine concept provides an even more dynamic and efficient production process.
Klingelnberg will also be introducing the latest P-40 at the exhibition. Due to their comprehensive range of functions, the P series machines replace up to four conventional measuring devices. With its basic mechanical accuracy and a modern compensation strategy, the P-40 is a machine with long-term stability that is capable of performing high-speed measurements in the highest accuracy class, directly on the shop floor. Features include an ergonomic operator panel, a vibration isolation function and an air-conditioned control unit.
The CNC-controlled Oerlikon G 60 bevel gear grinding machine from the G model series provides grinding performance combined with high-precision final machining of the curved-toothed bevel gears of any gearing system, including the teeth of face-type clutches. The G 60 operates up to a ring gear diameter of 600 mm. All G series spiral bevel gear grinding machines have a vertical grinding spindle, which ensures that the swarf drops directly downward. A special feature is that all drive units are above the grinding area, meaning that they are kept free of swarf deposits. The entire inner paneling is made of stainless steel – providing a clean and tough working area. All of the necessary additional components are integrated in the closed machine paneling. These are accessed through special maintenance doors. The adjusting work that is needed during re-tooling is assisted by convenient auxiliary functions like a standard semi-automatic grinding wheel changer, for example.
The Höfler Helix 400 gear grinding machine is a profile grinding machine for components with a diameter of up to 400 mm. Its well-engineered mechanical system makes it a reliable partner for sophisticated manufacturing. Apart from this, the innovative control and software functions make it suitable for customized profile and tooth trace modifications in special series production. The proprietary GearPro software guarantees ease of use, even for complex applications.
