New Hardinge grinding machines at GrindtecTwo new and innovative high-precision grinding machines from US-based Hardinge Inc (, represented in the UK by Rugby-based Jones & Shipman Hardinge, will be debuted at the Grindtec International Trade Fair in Germany (18-21 March).

Taking centre stage will be the all-new Voumard 1000 universal CNC internal grinding machine, which will be running live for the first time, along with a Hardinge machine that is an addition to the company’s extensive portfolio of universal grinding machines.

The brand-new Voumard 1000 is a high-performance cost-effective grinder for a wide range of universal internal grinding requirements.

Mike Duignan, managing director of Jones & Shipman Hardinge, said: “We are introducing a new grinding system that incorporates features resulting from customer feedback.

“These range from the rigid base to the hydrostatic guides in combination with direct drives on all axes to the new user interface on our controls.

“The result is a CNC machine that exceeds the most demanding of today’s grinding requirements.

“In replacing the Voumard 110, 130 and aspects of the 150 series, the new 1000 machine offers almost infinite configuration options for wide-ranging grinding operations.

“It can accommodate workpieces up to 300mm long and has a 300mm swing diameter over the table.”

The Voumard 1000 ‘optimises production costs’ when manufacturing high-precision parts for industries ranging from aerospace to medical, with typical applications being grinding operations on parts for hydraulic components, spindles, bearings, and gears.

Acquired by Hardinge in 2014, Voumard is now an integrated part of Hardinge’s grinding group — alongside Jones & Shipman Hardinge, Kellenberger, Hauser, Tschudin, and Usach. Voumard machines are manufactured in Switzerland.
