Kapp Niles’ KX 260 Dynamic generating gear grinding machine’s concept makes it possible to minimise the auxiliary process times and to reduce set-up times. The integrated loading function and the optionally available automatic changeover of the workpiece fixtures, make these machine concepts the suited for medium and large batch production of external spur and helical gears.
The machine includes one separate and pivoting column. A vertically moving pick-upaxis is mounted on the column; each pick-up-axis is equipped with a workpiece spindle. While one workpiece is ground, the second spindle transfers the completely processed workpiece to the handling conveyor and picks up an unprocessed part. The workpiece is aligned outside the working space.
