EMAG reports success at new exhibition

Flexible and at the same time highly productive solutions for grinding for electromobility and similar applications – this is what the EMAG Group demonstrated at the GrindingHub exhibition earlier this year. The company put together an interesting programme for the new trade fair for grinding technology. In addition to exhibits such as universal cylindrical grinding machines from EMAG Weiss and the VLC 350 GT combination machining machine, the company gave an insight into developments in the field of Industry 4.0 and IoT, in which a lot has happened in recent years – including in grinding technology.

In order to make it as easy as possible for EMAG customers to enter the world of data-optimised production, machines can now be delivered IoT-ready. This makes it possible to integrate the machines directly and without major effort into existing IoT networks.

Emag Weiss showed two machines at GrindingHub: a W 11 CNC and a W 11 EVO. The W 11 CNC is a grinding machine equipped with a modern, fast, grinding-oriented control, while the W 11 EVO is a further development of the well-known K11 series. The latter is a new, contemporary version of the conventional grinding machine with many extras that make production life easier: hydraulic-free, axle drives with servomotor and ball screw, modern HMI with touchscreen, automatic parallel dressing and free-driving.

Both machines offer high precision in external round machining with a grinding length of up to 2000 mm and a maximum grinding diameter of 360 mm.

EMAG also presented a VLC 350 GT for the first time at GrindingHub. The GT abbreviation stands for ‘Grinding’ and ‘Turning’. They indicate the strength of this machine: the combination of grinding and turning (plus other processes) with the proven EMAG pick-up automation enables countless manufacturing solutions.
