The machines of the ZP B-Series have been designed for the complete finish machining of external spur gears.
Special feature of this series - gear teeth, bores and end faces of the gears may be machined on a single machine.
For the grinding of gears as well as for bore and end face grinding, dressable ceramic tools for flexible machining options are offered. Non-dressable tools may be used in gear grinding.
The machines of the ZP B-Series come equipped with two dressing devices.
For gear grinding, the machines offer a CNC dressing unit for the profiling of corundum grinding wheels. A second dresser trues the tool for bore and face grinding.
NILES has belonged to the KAPP Group since 1997. This partnership has opened up new technical possibilities like the continuous generating grinding or the highly precise grinding of large gears with non-dressable CBN grinding wheels, which are manufactured by KAPP 2 Technologie GmbH. Additionally, the ZP line of large gear profile grinding machines was extended to diameters up to 8,000 mm.
Manufacturing high precision machine tools requires an optimal environment. Since beginning of the year 2000 the NILES gear profile grinding machines have been developed and produced in the newly-built plant in Berlin-Falkenberg.
