The United Grinding Group is hosting a Grinding Symposium May 8-10, 2019, in Thun, Switzerland. This will be the fourth such event, focusing on the issues of networked production, machine learning and intelligent workpieces. The group is inviting experts in hard fine machining internationally. 

In 16 expert talks, experts will discuss current and future developments in the grinding machine and production industries. There will be 13 presentations of use cases in which Mägerle, Blohm, Jung, Studer, Schaudt, Mikrosa, Walter and Ewag present their latest hardware and software solutions, including three new products.

“With the Grinding Symposium we offer our guests a forum for international, expert exchange at a top-class level,” says Stephan Nell, CEO of the group. Evening social events will facilitate mingling, discussion and networking. 

Because of the 2019 Grinding Symposium’s international attendance, material will be presented in German, English, French and Italian.

  • A Model Camshaft Grinding Process

    Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.

  • What Is Single Point OD Grinding?

    Two enabling technologies -- superabrasive wheels and high precision servo control -- come together to provide a contour grinding process that resembles an OD turning operation. For many medium volume OD grinding applications, this method may be a means to consolidate several manufacturing steps into a single setup.

  • Centerless Grinding: Not Magic!

    Achieving consistent and quality results from the centerless grinding process requires an understanding of the basic fundamentals. Most application problems associated with centerless grinding derive from a misunderstanding of the basics. This article explains why the centerless process works and how to use it most effectively in your shop.
