Shark teeth: Grinding wheel gets to work in minutes

Shark teeth: Grinding wheel gets to work in minutes
In the metal processing industry, sintered tools have a reputation for being particularly hard-wearing and for maintaining their sharpness over a long period. However, processing saw blades, drills, and milling tools proves to be time-consuming as a result of their particular hardness. This is why the saw blade professionals from Alesa in Switzerland started their own development process to design a grinding machine for circular saw blades. Author: Martin Rupf Bc. Sc., KOLLMORGEN

Direct drives provide energy savings in coil handling

Direct drives provide energy savings in coil handling
At the stainless-steel service centre Vogel-Bauer in the German town of Solingen, the new coil packaging system clearly demonstrates how effectively energy can be saved today. The lion’s share of efficiency gains of the systems built by Cologne-based machine builder KBD Engineering relates to the intelligent mechanics design together with the drive technology.
