Over 1500 international visitors experienced new technologies from precision machining and current trends in the manufacturing industry at the Grinding Symposium held by the UNITED GRINDING Group in Thun, Switzerland. Customers, experts and company representatives used the opportunity for one-on-one conversations
The new S31 performs complex and varied grinding tasks precisely and reliably. It can be used to produce small to medium-sized workpieces with a distance between cen-ters of 400, 650, 1000 and 1600 mm and a center height of 175 mm in individual, small batch and high volume production. With a high-resolution B-axis of 0.00005° the swiv-eling wheelhead enables efficient external, internal and surface grinding in a single clamping.
Fritz Studer AG makes history with the universal cylindrical grinding machine S31 and hands over the 1,000th machine to Wuhan Hangda Aero Science & Technology Development Co., Ltd. in China.
If you believe that a large STUDER machine will exceed your budget, we recommend you have a look at the favorit. This machine, top in price and performance, can be used universally and thanks to the centre distance of 1600mm (63”) can also handle long workpieces.
Focus on innovation: The UNITED GRINDING Group, holding company for the Machine Tools Business Area in the Körber international technology group, is establishing a joint venture named Irpd AG with the university-affiliated inspire AG. IRPD specializes in additive manufacturing processes - such as laser-based processes and 3D printing. The focus of the joint venture is to further develop these cutting-edge production processes and thereby benefit from current research findings. ETH Zurich has made significant investments in inspire AG.
