The UNITED GRINDING Group presented a series of world premieres at the GrindingHub 2022. Among other things, a new cylindrical grinding machine (STUDER S36), a new loading system (STUDER uniload), a tool grinding machine (WALTER HELITRONIC G 200) and – as an extension of the Group’s machine portfolio – a revolutionary additive machine tool for manufacturing metallic components using "3D printing" (IRPD IMPACT 4530).
Thank you very much for your visit – and we are looking forward to the next edition of GrindingHub: May 14 - 17, 2024 in Stuttgart.
These products were presented
The compact 5 axis grinding center is ideal for grinding complex geometries, particularly in the case of guide and rotor blades as well as heat shields for aircraft turbines.
PLANOMAT XT Essential
The competitive 3 axis entry level machine for high precision surface and profile grinding
Higher main axis speeds, greater acceleration and increased system rigidity - the combination of these consistently optimized essential performance characteristics means increased productivity while improving component quality.
IMPACT 4530 LPBF Printer
IMPACT 4530, the modular and scalable additive machine tool for metal is "Made in Switzerland" and consistently designed according to the values of Industry 5.0.
