CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machine
Knuth Machine Tools’ RSM series of CNC cylindrical grinding machines now combine the exclusive GPlus 450 CNC technology with high-quality, rigid construction. The company says this ensures maximum precision and efficient production.


High-Capacity, Bed-Type Milling Machine
Knuth Machine Tools’ KB series bed-type milling machines are equipped with large beds and wide columns for handling large parts. The machine design provides increased stability, low vibration and improved precision at high table loads, the company says.


Universal Milling Machine For Complex Applications
Suited for vertical milling, drilling and tapping, Knuth Machine Tools USA’s VHF 3 universal milling machine also includes a horizontal arbor for horizontal milling, slotting and keyway cutting. The machine is useful for mechanic workshops, production, training, single-part manufacturing and prototyping.


Cost-Effective Waterjet Technology
 The Hydro-Jet Eco is described as a high-precision, low cost waterjet cutting system. The unit offers a compact design and cuts virtually any type of material including metal, composites, plastic and more. Equipped with a software package for quick programming on an integrated PC control with graphical user interface, the waterjet technology features a cold-cutting process that ensures distortion free fabrication, the company says.


Dual-Column Automatic Band Saw
The ABS 320C is a fully automated band saw with a twin-column guide system. The automatic feed system uses a powered pinch roller system with ¾-hp hydraulic motor for automated, rapid material advancement. Designed with a limit switch to cut lengths accurately, this machine is also equipped with a programmable part counter for exact productivity and reduced material waste as well as an automatic height adjustment to limit space between the blade and the material so no time is wasted “cutting air,” the company says.
