The Zenith grinding machine uses three grinding technologies—aluminum oxide, "diamond-hard" plated cubic boron nitride (CBN) and vitrified CBN—to grind rotors as large as 420 mm. The machine also offers the flexibility of using tooling from the company’s existing grinding machines and those of its competitors.
This technology encompasses modern innovations with an “easy feel” control system that incorporates both a development and production software suite to suit various user requirements in either research and development or mass production, the company says.

The grinding machine features a grinding spindle mounted on maintenance-free hybrid roller bearings for high peripheral speeds of as much as 150 m/sec., and in combination with the machine’s CBN high-speed technology, cycle times and setup times can be significantly reduced.
