Application Technology

The grinding results achieved on the best grinding machine can be just as good as the setting data, tools, auxiliary devices and grinding strategy allow it.

Our grinding center, that had been established to grind gears – mostly gears of special design – on behalf of our customers, has meanwhile developed to a center of competence during these already 50 production years. Here we bring gear grinding to perfection and develop in close cooperation with our customers application-specific grinding technologies.

In special experimental set-ups customized to your requirements we can work out the best and quickest grinding process for your production needs on our state-of-the-art machines. Highest stock removal rates combined with best surface quality and shortest floor-to-floor times are achieved, not least by an optimum clamping of your workpiece. Here we are also pleased to give competent advice, if necessary in cooperation with renowned manufacturers of specific clamping systems.

No matter if you want to use sintered corundum, CBN or even dressable CBN grinding wheels, we are able to realize the desired experimental procedure for you on the machines in our grinding center.

We assist you in choosing the best suited grinding wheels, cooling lubricants, setting parameters as well as the optimum clamping of your workpiece. You get the results in form of a clear report stating all required parameters.

In addition to continuous research, all new findings and experience made by the machine operators are considered for the advancement of our machines.

Special importance is attached to the continuous improvement of the operating software. 

Our application engineers will be pleased to assist you in making the use of a new HÖFLER machine a complete success.
