Added to MTDCNC by Hardinge Jones & Shipman on 16 September 2015

Hardinge Grinding Group, Booth No. L04/L08 Hall 14.

 

At EMO 2015, the assembly of machines from leading brand names in the Hardinge Grinding Group highlights the increasingly comprehensive spectrum of grinding products available from the Group.

 

Jones & Shipman, Kellenberger, Hauser, Tschudin and the recently acquired Voumard ranges will be represented with working demonstrations and all will feature either new or upgraded machines.

 

The technology spectrum of the Hardinge Grinding Group is now wider than ever, including high precision flexible solutions from Jones & Shipman, Kellenberger, Voumard and Hauser, with modular production solutions from the Tschudin and USACH brands. The exhibit at EMO will highlight how companies within the Group deliver products for virtually every grinding task, including universal, internal, profile, surface, jig and creep-feed grinding machines along with special systems and turnkey solutions for production environments. 

 

Leading UK grinding machine manufacturer Jones & Shipman will be exhibiting the recently upgraded Suprema 1000 cylindrical grinder alongside its EASY 624 surface grinder that also features a range of enhanced features.

 

The Suprema 1000 offers the user a concept that meets the demand for high geometric accuracy with quick changeover times in toolmaking as well as in batch and high-volume production. The machine performs complex cylindrical grinding operations with a simple setup process and is ideal as a highly competent entry-level machine. 

 

By using the J&S EASY programming system these ‘self-teach’ grinders enable inexperienced and experienced operators alike to be immediately more productive. 

 

The most significant new innovation on the Suprema is the integration of a Fanuc Power Motion control system with colour touchscreen which offers significantly increased online memory for dressing and grinding programmes and creates productivity improvements with better response times and reductions in programming and dressing times. 

 

Alongside the Suprema will be Jones and Shipman’s EASY 624 profile and surface grinder, a highly popular machine for small batch production work, precision tool room applications or prototyping.  It has recently been upgraded to incorporate a host of beneficial features including a new colour touch screen and a Fanuc Power Motion Control with extended memory, enabling thousands of dressing and grinding programmes to be saved along with improved processing speeds.

 

Making its world debut will be the first Voumard VM110 to be manufactured at Kellenberger's facilities in St. Gallen, Switzerland.

 

This machine is the smallest universal internal/external cylindrical grinder in an upgraded four machine range that has been technically modified to meet the demanding Kellenberger quality standards.

 

Offering exceptional precision grinding performance for small and medium size work pieces, sister machines in the VM programme – the VM130, VM150 and VM 300 - offer the same high performance but are suited to larger component diameters.  

 

Also being exhibited will be the latest Kellenberger VARIA universal cylindrical grinder with its compact design, yet significantly increased working area.  A success story in itself, earlier designs of the KEL-VARIA machine have sold more than 1000 units on the worldwide market. New at EMO 2015 will be the long bed version with a distance between centres of 1600mm and providing an option to the 1000mm version.

 

Finally, new from Hauser will be a jig grinder innovation comprising a jig grinding head for all their machines that enables significant increases in performance and productivity as well as higher machining accuracy.

 

Hauser jig grinding machines traditionally cater to the niche of highly accurate grinding work in tool and mould fabrication, as well as the production of sophisticated high precision components for other industries such as aerospace. The enhancement of the grinding head provides increases of over 30% productivity for high-precision hard machining by jig grinding with additional capability through optional ultra-fine hard milling.
