United Grinding offers the Magerle MFP 50 and MFP 51 grinding and machining centers are designed for productivity, flexibility, safety and performance in a compact design. As a five- or six-axis system, the machine performs grinding, milling and drilling in a single part clamping. Spindle speeds ranging to 10,000 rpm enable high-precision machining. The coolant nozzle, controllable via two axes, provides unrestricted freedom of movement and precise positioning of the coolant jet.

 

The MFP 51 has an extended range of functions. The 66-position toolchanger and the automatic diamond roll change enable efficient machining of several different workpieces without altering the tooling, according to the company. The coolant supply can be adapted to the process with the automatic nozzle changer, optimizing grinding results.

 

The company will also feature the Blohm Profimat XT grinding machine, the Studer Favorit CNC 1,600-mm grinding machine, the Walter Helitronic Power 400 grinding machines, among others.
