KNG 3P ready

gear profile grinding machine

machine concept

With the KNG 3P ready KAPP NILES offers users in the field of gear profile grinding an inexpensive entry into precision machining. The KNG 3P ready gear profile grinding machine is designed as a solution for the flexible production of small and medium lot sizes.


The KNG 3P ready has been optimised for manual ergonomic loading. Thanks to the low height of the machine bed and the short distance to the machine elements all operations can be carried out without requiring tools.

measuring system

The integrated measuring device allows to measure and to evaluate gear qualities against specifications. This function is used both for the optimisation of the set-up process and for the alignment of the toothing with optimised measurement switch.

control and software KN grind

The control system Sinumerik 840D sl is used on a 19” touch screen. The innovative, operator-friendly user interface KN grind allows a machine-oriented and an intuitive parameterization of the machining task. The operator is guided and supported during the input of workpiece and technology data. Via process control a flexible machining sequence is subsequently defined. In a process monitoring the operator is able to view and to influence the machining status at any time.


The profile grinding machine KNG 3P ready features a grinding spindle with high drive power for components of up to module 10 mm. The directly driven rotary table is generously dimensioned for a table load of up to 350 kg. The dresser sits stationary against the tool axis and even allows the use of small grinding wheels of up to 65 mm. The working area can be used without any restrictions at large helix angles. Alternatively, the swivel range of the machine allows the grinding of worms.
