Kapp-Niles will display two of its grinding machines with flexible process capabilities, ZX 1000 and the KX 500 Flex .
The ZX 1000 shares common machine elements and software with the KX 500, and comes standard with the same process flexibility for profile or generating grinding. The large ductile iron bed and torque motor for high load capacity allow high-speed grinding of “frac bull gears” with a dressable worm tool. Special gear types, such as beveloid and non-involute gears, can be ground with generating grinding.
