PTG to Showcase the Future of Ultra-precise Grinding at Grindtec 2014
PTG Deutschland GmbH, the German-based division of Britain’s Precision Technologies Group, has chosen GrindTec 2014 to showcase its parent company’s ultra-precise grinding technologies.
Visitors to Booth 2133, in Hall 2 at GrindTec, will be able to discover the full capabilities of the Zenith 400 helical profile grinder, as well as the GTG2 gear-grinding centre. Both machines are built in the UK by Precision Technologies Group company, Holroyd Precision Limited.
“We believe that GrindTec 2014 is the perfect international stage on which to present the benefits of Precision Technologies Group’s ultra-precise grinding machines to the widest possible audience,” comments Johann Haugg, Managing Director of PTG Deutschland GmbH.
“In addition to showing the immense capabilities of the Zenith 400 and GTG2 models,” he continues, “we will also be displaying a number of ultra-precise helical components and giving delegates unprecedented access to the Zenith 400’s features and capabilities – all via a highly innovative virtual reality display.”
Zenith 400 helical profile grinder
The Zenith 400 represents the very pinnacle of PTG’s profile grinding technologies and is the first machine of its kind to offer three grinding wheel options: aluminium oxide, ultra hard plated CBN and vitrified, dressable CBN. For exceptional levels of versatility, the Zenith 400 combines a 420mm diameter grinding capability, with a maximum component weight of 700kg. In addition to being a high-precision, helical profile grinding machine, the Zenith 400 also offers high stock removal rates and aggressive semi finishing, with production rates and accuracies tailored to each customer’s precise needs.
GTG2 helical gear grinder
The GTG2 helical gear grinder sets new standards in the production of ultra-precise gears in diameters of up to 350mm. Effectively a self-contained production cell within a single machine, the GTG2 offers fast set-up to optimise production and minimise operating costs, fully automatic programmable cycles, a fully automatic grinding wheel balancing system and the high power required for deep grinding operations. The GTG2 offers uncompromising levels of precision finish (approaching DIN3).
