You have been waiting for it – and now it is here! The new Kellenberger® 10 (K10) is the cost-optimized standard cylindrical grinding solution that gets you from your drawing to ground workpiece as quickly as possible.
We are excited to announce the K10 universal CNC grinding machine. Offering excellent value at its price point, the newly universal cylindrical grinding machine K10 is a standard machine that can be customized with a wide range of options. Optimized for cost efficiencies and throughput time, this energy-efficient machine is intuitive and is ideal for all levels of experience.
The K10 provides high availability, process safety, reliability, productivity flexibility, and easy retooling, and extends the Kellenberger family of cylindrical grinding solutions. The flexible solution offers distances 1000 mm and a center height of 200 mm between centers and can support a wide range of parts.
Designed as a hooked machine, its base is extremely stable mechanically and minimizes external influences. The full-length dressing interface on the rear side of the table reduces retooling work and extends the dressing possibilities.
The machine features generous X and Z-axis strokes (X=365 mm / Z=1,150 mm), collision-free operation and dressing ratios. The low-maintenance, high-precision linear guide on the X-axis and the V-flat sliding guides on the Z-axis are equipped with optical absolute linear position measuring systems. The B-axis is designed as an automatic indexing axis (1° Hirth gearing) with high positioning accuracy and +30°/-210° swivel range.
For high productivity and flexibility, the universal grinding head can optionally be equipped with two ø 500/400 mm O.D. grinding wheels. Powerful high frequency, grease-lubricated I.D. grinding spindles with direct drive are available in two speed ranges (6,000 – 40,000 rpm and 10,000 – 60,000 rpm).
Universal grinding head with 1 or 2 external wheels, cutting speed up to 50 m/s, rated power of grinding wheel holding taper 7.5 kW.
The integrated lifting system with chain hoist facilitates lifting of table assemblies, grinding wheels or workpieces significantly. Service work or repairs on the B-axis are also easily possible. The lifting system can carry up to 200 kg.
The Kellenberger 10 is equipped with a cost-optimized Fanuc 0i-TFP CNC control with 19” touch screen. It boasts fast intuitive programming and retooling via BLUE Solution with Object Guide, even for inexperienced operators. The advantages: more flexible machining options, a wider range of parts and integrated Kellenberger remote diagnostic software.
“The Kellenberger 10 is ideal for precision grinding for both beginners and experts because of the intuitive BLUE Solution interface. Minimal training is required. The standard machine has an unmatched price/performance ratio in procurement and maintenance. Proven modules also guarantee highest reliability and ease of service,” said Johannes Murer, Grinding Product Sales Specialist.
