The new standard in precision grinding

smartLine

The smartLine covers the entire spectrum of travelling table grinding machines. From simple reciprocation surface grinding through speed-stroke, slot and profile grinding all the way to creep-feed grinding. This machine concept solves every grinding task. The machine‘s versatile building block system is designed to allow almost any combination of components to solve your specific grinding task.

The Kombi-version of the smartLine allows individual configurations all the way up to a complex creep-feed grinding machine. Grinding width, grinding height, type of drive and spindle power as well as all variations of dressing units from simple table-mounted dressing diamond to CD-grinding with a headmounted roll dressing unit as well as an automatic tool changer for grinding wheels and dressing tools can be selected to meet specific requirements. The same standard dimensions for grinding lengths are available as for the pre-configured machines. It is possible to combine the grinding width of the N-line with the upgraded column of the BD-line. This includes the respective features as well.

Automatic tool and diamond roll changing allows the machining via

  • Grinding, Al-oxide, CBN and diamond grinding wheels
  • Drilling
  • Milling
  • Laser cladding
  • Measuring of the unfinished workpiece
  • ­Measuring of the machine workpiece including rework

in one set-up. This guarantees that all machined surfaces run to each other and errors are avoided by repeated re-chucking.
