  • Up to 50% cycle time reduction with PowerGrind
  • Low-maintenance components
Flexibility (materials, process, geometries)
  • ended swivel angles and travel ranges for significantly more geometries
  • ands on both sides without re-clamping
  • xis for wide range of workpieces and geometries
  • e combination of various dressing methods
  • gest possible range of applications from IC 3.96 mm to OD 50mm
  • ted for all common indexable insert materials
Maximum availability
