Swiss grinding machine expert Kellenberger presents the new KELLENBERGER 100 machine concept
In its anniversary year 2017 the innovative strength of Kellenberger and, by extension, of the Hardinge Grinding Group as a whole, is on full display. The task given to the engineers in St. Gallen, Switzerland, was to develop a platform solution on which various machine concepts could be realized with a strong customer focus.
With the completely newly developed KELLENBERGER 100 platform solution the high- performance, economical grinder segment in the group is being modernized to make it fit for the future. Kellenberger’s Vista and Vita machine model ranges, the Tschudin T25, and the Jones & Shipman Ultramat CNC and Ultragrind 1000 were integrated in the KELLENBERGER 100 platform concept.
In terms of functionality the new platform concept goes far beyond the possibilities of the machines named above and delivers the most diverse of configuration options for the widest range of grinding operations. Because of the modular solution on one common platform and the new assemblage concept designed to reduce throughput time, it was possible to optimize production costs for the machine and ensure an excellent price/performance ratio. Numerous standard options put the finishing touch on the machine variety.
The user-friendly and ergonomic design of the KELLENBERGER 100 machines will feature a new, simple operator guidance system on an intuitive touchscreen panel. The machines are equipped with the latest Fanuc 31i CNC controls with 19″ touchscreen, optionally also with newly designed cycle programming or workpiece-related graphic programming.
