Klingelnberg says its Speed Viper platform machines feature a revised, ergonomic design and a simplified operating system. The company says this removes the need for any modifications or corrections to be entered manually, as theses are now automatically loaded using GearPro Operator. A touch screen display provides operator guidance.
Other new machining equipment includes the Höfler TM 65 complete processing machining centre, which the company claims can produce gear bodies and gearing systems of any complexity directly from rod material. This is complemented by the P 65 precision measuring centre that it’s claimed can perform measurement tasks on axially symmetrical components on one device without additional re-chucking and set-up procedures.
