Klingelnberg launches a comprehensive innovation offensive in the fields of cylindrical and bevel gear technologyThe Höfler Speed Viper 300 generating grinding machine with automation and the Speed Viper 180 are among this year’s highlights in the field of cylindrical gear technology. With its latest innovation of the Speed Viper platform, Klingelnberg is presenting itself as a true pioneer with regard to Industry 4.0 – and it will be demonstrating the cost savings and efficiency gains that are possible as soon as the potential of digitally-supported processes is fully exploited. With this new development, Klingelnberg is celebrating a market premiere: new construction, a completely revised, ergonomically optimized design and with GearPro Operator a newly developed operating concept focusing on a simple, innovative operating philosophy. Modifications and corrections no longer need to be entered manually, but are automatically loaded using GearPro Operator. Klingelnberg is setting a new standard with regard to machine operation presenting this operator guidance via a modern 19-inch touch screen display. The all new Speed Viper is designed for high-productivity and robustness of the grinding process, and therefore meets any requirements of today´s large-scale production: short set-up times, minimum cycle times, innovative software solutions and digital process control in a closed loop system.
It is not just the all new Speed Viper that reflects this year’s trade fair motto of the EMO “Connecting systems for intelligent production”: With the new Höfler TM 65 complete processing machining center, the system provider is impressively showing how process integration in production and measuring technology can be successful in gearing system machining. With the TM 65, Klingelnberg now has a new machine that can produce gear bodies and gearing systems of any complexity directly from rod material – regardless of whether it is bevel gears, cylindrical gears or internal gears. P 65 – precision measurement with optimized design Versatility and the idea of process integration were also the main focus during the further development of the P 65 precision measuring center, which has a new, ergonomically optimized design. Here, Klingelnberg has consistently continued down the route of complete measurement in production: All measurement tasks on axially symmetrical components are possible on one device without additional re-chucking and set-up procedures. With the P 65, the focus is on the high-precision 3D coordinate measurement, as well as the form and surface roughness measurement. Visitors to the trade fair can also look forward to new products in the field of “optical measurement”.
