• generating and profile gear grinding
• suitable for prototyping to large batch production
• customised configuration
• vertical machine design
• dressable and non-dressable CBN tools
• customised automation
Based on a modular system in combination with the application possibilities of different tool and process technologies, user-specific, optimal production solutions can be configured.
The following methods are possible:
• continuous generating grinding
• discontinuous profile grinding
• combination of both methods
Due to the flexible system and loading options, the KX 300 P is suitable for all gear requirements and production volumes equally. In this series, the following tool concepts are offered:
• dressable ceramic tools for the flexible requirements of prototype machining as well as medium and high volume machining
• non-dressable CBN tools for the highly productive manufacturing of medium and high-volume series
Since the tool spindle (with counter-bearing) can hold several tools, the cut segmentation is possible due to the sequential use of roughing and finishing tools in one single workpiece set-up. Alternatively, several gears can be machined in one set-up. In addition to cylindrical grinding worms, single or multi-set CBN profile grinding wheels can be used for full-form machining as an alternative. A total of six NC axes align the gear wheel and tool with each other. They swivel the tool to the axes cross angle and carry out the linear and rotary motions necessary for the machining process. Workpiece and tool are directly driven. If the machine is configured for the use of dressable tools, the profile dressing unit is integrated. This unit is automatically swiveled from an accessible parking position, to the work area of the machine. By using the machine axes for dressing, the dressing of the cylindrical grinding worms, as well as the profile grinding wheels, can be performed very quickly with a high degree of flexibility.
control and software
The control system Siemens Sinumerik 840D is equipped with an operator-friendly menu driven user interface, developed by KAPP NILES to match the specific machining requirements.
The optional measuring device allows to measure and evaluate gear qualities against specifications. This functionality is mainly used to optimise the set-up processes in the machine, particularly in order to eliminate non-operational periods due to external measuring processes as far as possible. Alternatively, random samples can be tested during processing.
There are several loading systems available which can be integrated into the machine
