The J. Schneeberger Corp. offers a larger version of the Aries NGP, the NGP+, intended to provide an affordable tool grinder with the power to handle larger tools with the productivity that comes with a FANUC loading arm.

The Aries NGP’s direct-drive, double-ended spindle provides 10 hp of duty-rated power and the accuracy of an HSK50 wheel arbor interface. The bigger NGP+ has a slightly larger footprint and can handle tools ranging to 13" × 15¾" in size. The machine also provides integrated coolant delivery.

The FANUC robot provides fast and accurate loading of tools with two pallets and a double gripper. Schneeberger’s Quinto Qg1 CAD/CAM software is said to enable fast machine programming.

    Roughing and finishing on a single machine, using a single setup, has appeal for most shops. The advantages in time savings and accuracy are obvious. Eliminating the transport of workpieces between machines, as well as the setup for those secondary operations, is a boon for throughput. Critical features that need to maintain dimensional relationships can be much more reliably produced if machined complete in one clamping.
