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.


  • Vertical Grinding Has Advantages

    In vertical grinding, the workpiece is held upright in a rotary chuck with the grinding spindle overhead. This configuration can improve roundness, facilitate single-setup processing and prolong the life of the machine. Loading and unloading may gets easier, too. Workpieces with relatively large diameters and short lengths benefit the most from vertical grinding.

  • Choosing The Right Grinding Wheel

    Understanding grinding wheel fundamentals will help you find the right wheel for the job.

  • Advanced Grinding, Plain and Simple

    Advanced grinding equipment gives this shop the flexibility and automation it needs to serve customers with either rapid-response or high-volume jobs.
