KX 160 / 260 TWIN gear centres
generating grinding of gears
The machines of the KX TWIN type are particularly designed for medium and large batch production of gears and shafts where quality levels are especially demanding.
The generating gear grinding machine includes two identical workpiece spindles, arranged at opposing sides of an index table. While machining one part, the second workpiece spindle simultaneously unloads / loads and aligns another part. Thus, many of the auxiliary functions are carried out during the machining time, cutting the auxiliary processing time to a minimum.
A total of ten NC axes align the gear wheel with the tool and perform the necessary linear and rotary motions during grinding. The index table and both tailstocks are designed as NC axes. The workpiece spindle and tool spindle are directly driven.
The design of these machines includes an integrated single spindle dresser for conventional grinding worms. Mounted staggered to the workpiece spindles, the dressing unit is assembled on the tailstock column, too.
For the dressing process the profile dressing unit is aligned with the tool by turning the tailstock column.
