The German Design Award honors manufacturers and designers whose innovative products have made pioneering contributions to the German and international design landscape. The German Design Council—the expert for brand and design in Germany—bestows the German Design Award. Only products distinguished by outstanding design receive this prize from the highly esteemed, international jury of experts.

High-end technologies for the reliable production of precision tools

The productivity of machine tools and the demand for the accuracy of manufactured parts has significantly increased in past years. Manufacturers must increasingly machine materials with extremely hard cutting materials, with ever higher machining speeds and quality requirements.

Shoe grinding – Highest precision for thin-walled workpieces

Do you have the highest requirements on the roundness of thin-walled rings and sleeves or a rolling element raceway, whose surface-profile shape must be extremely precise, so that the rolling element can offer an extended service life or external and internal machining in a single clamping, so that these rings can also be produced economically? STUDER has the answer and knows the necessary manufacturing process.

Higher productivity with metal bonds – but how do you dress them?

The integrated electro-discharge dressing technology WireDress ® opens up brand new possibilities for grinding with metal-bonded grinding wheels and drastically cuts auxiliary times. According to Fritz Studer AG, it has been possible to increase grinding power in the grinding process by 30% and reduce grinding wheel wear by 70% in comparison with ceramic and resin bonds. Grinding wheels with very intricate contours can also be dressed.

Precision grinding for the fine machining of sheet metal

Timesavers International will be introducing the latest generation of precision grinding machines from their 81 series. The grinders are deemed particularly suitable for the fine machining of titanium, corrosion-resistant steel, aluminum and other metallic materials with maximum lengths of 7,500 mm and widths up to 2,100 mm.

Improved universal cylindrical grinder

With larger heights of and distances between centers, the new Varia universal cylindrical grinding machine from Kellenberger is said to be faster and more precise, offering consistently better performance.

KUKA robots for high payloads tend machine tools

Three KUKA robots from the KR QUANTEC pro family are in operation at the plant of Bizerba SE & Co. KG. They guarantee that aluminum housings are reliably fed to two grinding machines where they are rough and fine-ground and polished. The aluminum housings are used for sausage cutting machines.
