gear grinding centres ZP B
profile, bore and face grinding of gears
The machines of the ZP B type were designed and built to comply with the highest demands in large gear grinding. Thanks to the combination of two machining processes, they offer further advantages
Like all machines of the well known ZP series, the ZP B machines may be applied for large module gear grinding because of their comprehensive equipment. Due to the combination of internal cylindrical grinding and face grinding, these machines are mainly used for the grinding of gears where quality and economic benefits can be derived from performing all tasks in a single clamping. The bore can be either cylindrical or conical.
Various tools are used on the ZP B machines. For grinding of gears as well as for bore and end face grinding, dressable wheels for flexible machining options are offered. Non-dressable wheels may alternatively be used in gear grinding.
The machines of the ZP B type are equipped with two dressing devices. For gear grinding the custo-mer-specific profiles can be generated via the machine control and controlled axes. A second dresser profiles the tool for bore and face grinding. The cup-shape dressing tool can dress the outer diameter and the faces of the grinding tool.
