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.
