From January 24 to January 30, 2019, the KLINGELNBERG Group will be taking part in India's Metal Cutting Machine Tool Exhibition (IMTEX) – now in its 19th year – in Bangalore, India. One of the largest exhibitions for the metal-cutting industry in South and Southeast Asia, the week-long trade show presents the complete spectrum of products and technologies in the machining industry.
Klingelnberg (represented by its Indian subsidiary, KLINGELNBERG India PVT LTD.) will also be on hand, showcasing its extensive line of products and services at Booth A-104 in Hall 4. Visitors can look forward to two machine highlights.
The Höfler Speed Viper2 180 cylindrical gear grinding machine with dual-spindle concept and Koenig Automation
A winner of the iF-Design Award, the Speed Viper cylindrical gear generating grinding machine was developed by Klingelnberg with a special focus on high-production generating grinding. The innovative machine concept was unveiled for the first time at the EMO 2017 exhibition in Hanover, Germany, and was presented to a large international audience the following year. Klingelnberg is taking India's IMTEX trade show as an opportunity to introduce additional new developments in the Speed Viper series.
Thanks to an innovative drive in the dual-spindle model and its superb automation capability, the Speed Viper2 achieves significantly lower auxiliary times, while offering a design that is optimized for the Industry 4.0 production environment. The dual-spindle concept of the Speed Viper² is therefore especially designed to meet the productivity requirements of the automotive industry and its suppliers. Whereas the single-spindle machines offer high versatility and short set-up times, the dual-spindle machines also feature a design that is suited to large-scale production and minimal cycle times.
The Speed Viper combines the outstanding grinding technology of Höfler machine tools with the tried-and-tested Klingelnberg Closed Loop method, which customers are already familiar with from bevel gear technology. By transferring the Closed Loop concept established by Klingelnberg to the world of cylindrical gears, the mechanical engineering company has made another systematic step toward digitalization in gear manufacturing. Thanks to a broad array of applications and software, Klingelnberg's cyber-physical production system centralizes production control, leading to a standardization of results achieved on different machines and even in different plants.
P 40 precision measuring center
Klingelnberg will also be showcasing a measuring machine made for just this type of Closed Loop process: the P 40 precision measuring center stands for future-proof quality management of gears and features a compact footprint suited to a workpiece diameter range of up to 400 mm. The machine and software concept is optimized for the measurement of complex drive components using a technology that replaces up to six conventional measuring methods: gear measurement, general coordinate measurement, form and position measurement, roughness measurement, contour measurement and optical measuring technology. This guarantees maximum measuring accuracy and reproducibility. Klingelnberg's P series is one of the most widely used standards in the industry and serves as a reference for metrology institutes – and with good reason.
Klingelnberg's solutions bring it close to the market and the user – with regard to services and software solutions as well. IMTEX visitors will have an opportunity to see this for themselves at Klingelnberg Booth A-104 in Hall 4.
