Formerly known as GearExpo, the US-based Motion + Power Technology Expo (MPT) will take place this year from October 15 to 17 in Detroit, USA. Machine manufacturer Klingelnberg will also be using this platform for an intensive professional exchange of equals. Not only will visitors to stand 3631 encounter a team of experts who are available for technical discussions, but Klingelnberg will also unveil leading-edge technology with the P 26 precision measuring center and optical measuring technology. At the same time, Klingelnberg will shine a light on its expertise in the "non-gear" sector in this forum.
Hybrid measuring technology from Klingelnberg
To be equipped for all measurement tasks, Klingelnberg combines HISPEED OPTOSCAN optical measuring technology with the established, high-precision 3D NANOSCAN probing system. This system incorporates maximum precision with the required robustness for a production environment. Thanks to the high-speed changeover feature, the optimal measurement system can be used for every task. Optical measuring technology is a valuable addition for many tasks in precision measuring technology, such as digitizing an entire, possibly unknown, component or measuring splines quickly yet completely. The high measurement speed of the optical system with a high point density allows for measurements that would be time-intensive if performed with a tactile system. This enables cost-effective measurements in an industrial setting. The tactile 3D NANOSCAN is a must any time individual, high-precisionmeasured values are required for measurement tasks. For a rapidly generated, dense point cloud, HISPEED OPTOSCAN is available. Combined with the available roughness measuring technology, Klingelnberg precision measuring centers are the cost-effective solution for all precision measurement tasks. For smart production concepts, Klingelnberg solutions also have a contribution to make in the "non-gear" sector. Whether turning blanks, ground workpieces or rolling bearings – Klingelnberg G variant precision measuring centers are specifically designed for use in the production process of axially symmetrical components.
G variant precision measuring centers: Complete measurement of complex components
Stringent precision requirements in series production and increasing component complexity – both call for the best available measuring technology. The G series precision measuring centers are perfectly suited to production processes that require not just dimensional measurement tasks, but also complex form and surface measurements in large numbers. Klingelnberg G variant precision measuring centers are designed for use in the production environment and are therefore ideal for measurements on the shop floor. This makes the G variant appealing for the automotive and commercial vehicle industry, for machine building and plant engineering, and for manufacturers of rolling bearings. Like all precision measuring centers from Klingelnberg, the G variants stand out for their high-precision 3D NANOSCAN probing system as well as their easy-to-use roughness probe systems for external and internal measurements.
Furthermore, visitors can also look forward to additional highlights from Klingelnberg. The expo team will also be informing visitors to the stand about the exhibit highlights presented at EMO Hannover 2019. Among others, these include the OERLIKON G 35 Bevel Gear Grinding Machine for the aviation industry and the HÖFLER VIPER 500 MFM cycloid grinding machine, which is of special interest to the robot industry.
G 35: Optimal for requirements in the aviation industry
Specifically tailored to the requirements of the aviation industry, the newly developed OERLIKON G 35 bevel gear grinding machine takes aviation gear manufacturing to a new level with its two vertical grinding spindles. Tried and tested concepts and components are used to ensure optimal functionality and the best possible availability of spare parts for this special-purpose machine. The technology has been enhanced to include new features that allow for efficient work practices on the machine.
VIPER 500 MFM: Increasing productivity and precision in the robot industry
With the VIPER 500 MFM, Klingelnberg is strengthening its presence in the market outside the gearing sector. This machine makes it possible to mass-produce high-precision cycloid gearings without requiring complex pairing of components. In combination with the precision measuring centers and Closed Loop, Klingelnberg now has a complete system that makes the production of highly accurate cycloid gearings very easy: in the cycloid grinding cell, the processing machine and the precision measuring center are connected by automation. Thanks to the use of GearEngine®, this cycloid grinding cell is “fit” for Industry 4.0 processes. Combined with Closed Loop, this gives rise to an autonomous, self-optimizing production system that makes it possible to utilize the machining and measuring capacity of the machines to optimal effect.
Potential customers at MPT are invited to experience all of this for themselves – the Klingelnberg specialists will be on hand at stand 3631 to assist all visitors with their expert knowledge.
