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.

According to the company, the KX 500 Flex demonstrates how process flexibility optimizes cost and delivery for prototypes for medium- to high-volume production. The machine is equipped with an indexing table that incorporates the direct-drive work spindle, tailstock support and dressing spindles. This design is said to improve operator access while also enabling simple integration of automation.
The company will also display its Kapp CBN tools for direct grinding and DIA dressers for grinding and honing.
