Racer Sébastien Buemi knows what precision and efficiency are. After all, the former F1 driver has already won 13 races in the new Formula E and was the world champion in 2016. Being fast is not enough to be a front runner in this fully electric race series, a driver must also be efficient with the available energy, or the battery will be empty before he reaches the finish line. That's why Sébastien Buemi is a perfect match for maxon, whose high-end electric motors can be found not just in Mars rovers, but also in the Ad-Blue injection systems used in Formula 1 race cars... read more
The S40 was in use at LMT Kieninger for 14 years. The company specializes in highly demanding machining tasks and manufactures special tools for die and mold making. "The S40 was the Rolls Royce of grinding machines. But the machine still wears over time and after intensive use", admits Heiko Braun, Group Manager of Cylindrical/Surface Grinding and Assembly. It was clear to LMT Kieninger that they should send the cylindrical grinding machine to the STUDER factory in Switzerland for an overhaul. STUDER provided them with a loan machine for around three months and took care of everything from A to Z - from collection through to customs formalities. "We were very satisfied with the loan machine. Apart from a few little things, we were able to continue grinding as usual", sums up Braun. The special feature about a machine overhaul at STUDER? It is the only company to refurbish the machines' guideways to the original specifications. After the assemblies have been reinstalled, the machine geometry is equivalent to that of a new machine. Braun's view: « This point in particular really convinced us. We notice the difference. Since the overhaul we have been grinding with the precision of a new machine. I can only recommend a machine overhaul. Everything went without a hitch, the investment has paid off and a 1600 mm machine is worth its weight in gold for us. »
Rebuild – new from old
A rebuild, or a machine overhaul, makes sense, and not just economically. The operator gets his familiar machine back and continues where he stopped before the overhaul. But he is full of enthusiasm! Because his old machine is like new. In the STUDER factory the specialists disassemble the machine into all its individual parts. The guideways are completely refurbished, the assemblies overhauled, the wear parts in the electric cabinet replaced, hydraulic and lubricating system as well as all valves replaced. If old spare parts can no longer be obtained, STUDER provides an alternative solution. The casing and components are sand-blasted and then given a fresh coat of paint. After assembly the geometry is like that of a new machine. Commissioning is carried out by STUDER Customer Care, including a functional and geometry inspection, all CE-compliant. "Over 20 people work on machine overhauls at STUDER. This shows the value of rebuild and retrofit at STUDER. The customers are always enthusiastic about the transformation and are delighted to put an as-new machine into operation at an excellent price-performance ratio", says Marcos Cotarelo, Divisional Head and Customer Care Consultant.
Expanding the component range
If the customer wishes to expand his component range at the same time as the overhaul, he does this with a retrofit. During the machine overhaul the machine can be modified or retrofitted to the customer's requirements. This opens up new production possibilities on the same machine. Ingold Tools AG has taken advantage of this STUDER service.
Ingold Tools AG has been producing high-precision and complex parts for spindle, compressor, hydraulic and general machine manufacturing with 25 employees since 1946. The machinery includes a variety of CNC-controlled and conventional machines, including robot-automation solutions for turning, milling/drilling, honing, lapping, barrel finishing, sand-blasting, laser marking as well as surface and cylindrical grinding. The cylindrical grinding shop already has several conventional and CNC STUDER machines. A further machine is currently being overhauled in the STUDER production halls. This is an 18-year old S21 with two external spindles and continuous fine adjustment of the turret wheelhead (B-axis fine), which the two managing directors Christoph Jenzer and Edgar Stich recently took on as a second-hand machine. The S21 will not only be updated in line with the latest developments, but will also be retrofitted to suit the needs of Ingold Tools AG. The cylindrical grinding machine will have an additional internal grinding spindle for internal cylindrical grinding and the relevant fixture for swiveling the tailstock into the park position. The S21 will also have a new spindle cooling system with its own circuit, as well as a hydraulically swiveling dressing unit. So that all grinding machines have the same mounting, the universal tool headstock will also be upgraded from MK4 to MK5. "This deal is perfect for us. Thanks to the retrofit, we get the second-hand machine with 50 percent new hardware", enthuses Jenzer.
The S21 is the second factory-rebuilt STUDER machine at Ingold Tools AG. In 2016 the company took on a second-hand S31 machine, which STUDER overhauled. "We grind to a bearing tolerance and diameter of 1my. STUDER guarantees this accuracy after the overhaul. Either way: An overhauled STUDER will run just as long as a new machine", attests Stich. Jenzer and Stich see a further advantage of the machine overhaul in the operation: "The employees don't have to get used to a new machine with a new control system."
Ingold Tools has relied on STUDER since it was established in 1946. The first external cylindrical grinding machine was a type 01 from the year 1955. This was still in use when Christoph Jenzer joined the company 13 years ago. "We like working with STUDER. The service personnel are quick to respond, and our Customer Care Consultant supports us wherever he can. It's not without reason that we have so many STUDER machines." A new machine? Jenzer and Stich say: "We wouldn't rule it out – a new machine always offers advantages which an old one doesn't have, such as faster travel in all axes, simpler set-up of the machine, and easy programming with less technical knowledge." But the employees are looking forward to the overhauled S21, which will soon be on its way to Inkwil in Bern.

Kptec Components GmbH from Schorndorf (Germany) is a component manufacturer for the machine tool industry. The focus is on spindles, rotors, spindle casings, connecting rods and flange parts. The core competence is grinding. Walter Wiedenhöfer, Managing Director of Kptec Components, explains that consistently achieving tolerences in the micron range (40mill") in production is the great challenge in grinding." In the production of spindle components, coaxilities under one micron (40mill") are state-of-the-art. It is often necessary to grind an H6 fit into bores up to 400 mm (15.7") deep for the clamping interface mechanism. In addition, the machine should manufacture as economically as possible. In other words: You should only handle the component once and then completely finish it in one step. But a good machine should also flexible to enable it to handle uncommon operations such as the grinding of slots in a spindle too. One machine that meets such requirements is the universal internal cylindrical grinding machine S151. Fully equipped, it has three internal and one external grinding spindle, as well as a measuring probe. It convinced Kptec. Today Wiedenhöfer says: « The machine is the best we have in the company – it was absolutely the right decision to buy a STUDER machine. »
STUDER has the right machine for every demand in internal grinding. In the universal range, these are the S121, S131, S141 and the S151. The inexpensive universal S121 is the ideal machine for internal, face and external grinding of chuck components. The S131, S141 and S151 form a product range for every imaginable application in internal cylindrical grinding. They are used where very high precision and efficiency are required – for example, flange parts, spindle shafts, spindle housings, rotor shafts, bushings and much more. The maximum workpiece weight is 250kg (550lbs) and the maximum workpiece length is 1300mm (51.2").
The S110 is a very flexible and compact internal cylindrical grinding machine ideal for chuck applications for indivudual parts or small series production. Thanks to its small footprint it will fit in any workshop. S122 specializes in small bores and is equipped with a swing diameter of 220 mm. It offers state-of-the-art technology for the processing of small to medium-sized workpieces in small to large-scale production. Both types can handle up to three grinding spindles in a parallel arrangement, which allows for external and internal grinding in one clamping. "Price, quality, technical standard – that was our selection criteria for a new machine. The biggest advantage is the high production capacity", says Miroslav Martinek, Production Manager at Sellier & Bellot, explaining his investment decision in an S110.
Three sizes for radii
The S121, S131 and S141 are the experts for high-precision internal cylindrical grinding of radii, spheres, cones and diameters. The maximum swing diameter is 400mm (25.6") and the maximum workpiece weight is 100kg (220lbs). The main areas of application are in the production of drawing dies made of tungsten carbide and ceramics and the production of hydraulic components such as axial pump pistons, guide plates, housings made of hardened steel, grey cast iron and copper. Complex workpieces made of industrial ceramics, sapphire and tungsten carbide for the manufacture of human implants are also within the scope of applications. The automatic B-axis with direct drive allows grinding with interpolation for the high-precision machining of radii. The Radius grinding machines are supported by the Software StuderSIM. A S131 – with an option for radius grinding – is installed at AKS Hartmetalltechnik GmbH in Schwbisch Gmünd. "The sophisticated CNC technology of combining various operations in a single clamping and thus acheiving maximum precision These criteria convinced us. The set-up times, maintenance costs and downtime are now calculable. We also benefit from the rapid response times of STUDER Customer Care", explains
Production Manager Edgar Feifel.
The internal cylindrical grinding machines are based on the Granitan® machine bed with its excellent damping proprieties and the StuderGuide® guideway system. Its huge advantage over hydrostatic guideways is the damping component in the direction of movement. The dressing process can be flexibly and optimally adapted to the workpiece, tool and material-specific properties - according to the customer's wishes. Another Studer speciality are the grinding wheel reference points (T numbers). This enables programming with normal dimensions, which considerably simplifies the programming of grinding programs. The workhead can be moved on the swiveling B-axis in the longitudinal direction, has a high roundness accuracy and is low in maintenance. An air cushion lift-off facilitates simple movement during setup and resetting.
Sophisticated sensor technology monitors the process of grinding and dressing and provides an easy detection the grinding wheel and workpiece position. The contact detection serves the purpose of cycle-time reduction. The modular spindle concept enables optimal adaptation to the grinding task. The direct drive in the grinding spindle turret head guaranties the smallest positioning variation for the radius and universal grinding machines (except S110 / S122). In the S122, the efficient high-precision processing of small diameters is also possible due to the proven grinding arbor deflection compensation.
Loading systems are available for automation that, due to their modular design, can be adapted exactly to the machine application and process. The appropriate periphery ensures seamless integration into the production process.
Everybody a grinding expert
For the operation of the machine, it is no longer necessary to be a grinding expert. All you have to do is know is the specifications of the part and what the surface finish should be at the end of the process. StuderTechnology recommends the optimal grinding parameters and generates the program. StuderWIN offers the possibility to fully integrate the measuring control and also sensor technology for process monitoring, such as contact detection and balancing systems, into the user interface. This allows uniform programming of the different systems. StuderWIN is supplemented by the grinding software StuderPictogramming. The operator lines up the individual grinding cycles together - the control generates the ISO code. The functionality of the machine is increased with the Software option for form and thread grinding. The StuderSIM software was specifically developed for the internal grinding of radii. Das Betriebssystem ermöglicht das Programmieren von allen Basiszyklen für das Schleifen, Abrichten und prozessunterstützende Messen. This way of programming guarantees great flexibility with the highest user experience. After programming, the process can be simulated and optimized. This gives reliability and guarantees short programming times and consequently an increase in profitability.
There is hardly a workpiece that cannot be processed with the STUDER internal grinding machines. The Swiss grinding machine manufacturer offers the right machine for every imaginable application. Very pleasant for the operator is the optimal ergonomics, which further increases the relative value of the machines.
