Kellenberger to present innovative CNC control philosophySwiss grinding specialist Kellenberger will be unveiling an updated software suite across the company’s entire product portfolio at GrindingHub 2022, the new fair for grinding technology taking place in Stuttgart, Germany from 17-20 May (Hall 10, Stand A70).

In addition, the software suite will be applied to the Voumard universal internal cylindrical grinding range. Kellenberger is represented in the UK by DF Precision Machinery Ltd.

A Kellenberger 100 and a Kellengberger 1000 machine will be showcased, along with a Voumard 1000, all featuring the easy-to-use advanced touch HMI software solution.

The Kellenberger 100 will be demonstrated with a flexible automation solution that was specially developed for the specific machine. The cost-effective solution allows rapid changeovers and the highly efficient production of small batches. The Kellenberger 100 is available in a number of configurations to accommodate a wide range of grinding operations.

Meanwhile, the Kellenberger 1000 hydrostatic universal cylindrical grinding machine is oriented towards the high demands of the precise production of prototypes, as well as small- and medium-series production, in for example, tool and mould making, the automotive and electrical industries and the aircraft industry.

With the ability to machine components of up to 300kg, a solid machine table and reinforced machine bed provides very high rigidity and stability, prerequisites for high-precision grinding. Full flexibility is assured as more than 30 different grinding head variants are possible, including external and internal grinding spindles as well as optional centre heights of 250 and 300mm and 1,000 to 1,600mm between centres.

Meanwhile, the advanced Voumard 1000 internal and external cylindrical grinding machine is designed to accommodate precision workpieces with a maximum length of 300mm and a swing circle diameter of 300mm.

The machine’s hydrostatic linear axes with newly developed Hydrolin guides are backlash-free for extremely precise positioning that is measured in the nano range. Additionally, the two high-precision hydrostatic B axes carry out all necessary movements of the machine’s dressing and measuring devices.

The Voumard 1000’s level of flexibility makes grinding a wide range of different component types possible and shortens set-up times. The machine’s spindle turret on the B1 axis is equipped with a uniquely compact grinding spindle head with a flexible internal grinding spindle arrangement for a maximum of four grinding spindles.
