Fritz STUDER AG sees itself as synonymous with hardware, software, system integration and service, delivering premium Swiss quality every step of the way. It is also determined to help its customers meet the same exacting standards by offering custom end-to-end grinding solutions and imparting all the expertise and know-how it has garnered on the grinding process. To ensure the art of grinding and the name STUDER continue to go hand in hand in people’s minds, the company is now upping the ante and unveiling its new S33 CNC universal cylindrical grinding machine at EMO Hannover 2019.
Available with distances between centers of 400, 650, 1,000 and 1,600 mm and a center height of 175 mm, the STUDER S33 can be used to grind small, medium-sized and large workpieces, weighing anything up to 150 kg, for custom, small-scale and mass production. It even makes light work of complex workpieces - fully grinding them in a single clamping process. Not only that, but if operators need to switch from grinding between centers to live spindle grinding, the machine can be retooled in record time. The STUDER S33 rests on top of a machine base made of solid Granitan S103 - a mineral casting whose outstanding thermal properties provide a high level of dimensional accuracy, while also ensuring temporary temperature fluctuations are largely balanced out. STUDER has completely overhauled the base's geometry and added an innovative temperature control system, which is also designed to keep production running quickly and reliably. What’s more, the longitudinal slide on the base features a double T-slot for attaching the dressing unit, which makes setting up and resetting the machine much easier.
