The slogan of the UNITED GRINDING Group was also its motto at this year’s EMO Hannover: UNITED FOR YOUR SUCCESS. The group celebrated its 30th anniversary and announced its partnership with Transaction-Network. It also presented three product innovations in grinding and measuring technology on 1,000 sq. m.
This year’s EMO Hannover 2023 was once again a showcase for the latest technologies from the manufacturing industry. With its 1,000 sq m (10,765 sq ft) booth, the UNITED GRINDING Group was again prominently represented this year too, and presented several innovations.
Premiere of three new products
At the 16 machines on display, the trade professionals were also able to experience the following innovations live:
BLOHM, the specialist for surface and profile grinding machines, presented the UNIMATE workpiece automation system for the PLANOMAT XT, a more precise and productive solution for the internal machining of hydraulic motor stators. The new vertical grinding arrangement offers numerous advantages for this application. And the automatization solution developed specifically for this purpose also contributes to higher productivity.
STUDER presented a universal automation solution for the S33 and S31 cylindrical grinding machines: the new insertLoad loading system. This new standardized loading system can handle horizontal- and vertical-oriented workpieces and load the parts between centers and into a chuck.
And WALTER, one of the leading manufacturers of machine tools, presented the innovative “Laser Contour Check” measuring system for the first time at EMO. This combines a new type of blue laser with an intelligent measuring system and is used for highly accurate, contact-free measurement of various tool parameters on cylindrical tools directly in the working area of the grinding or eroding machines.
