Gearing and function surfaces such as drillings and plane faces can be primarily machined by grinding in one clamping fixture with the KN5Ci. Even extreme shape and positional tolerances required for precision gearing in robot and aerospace applications can reportedly be realized. Moreover, complementary processes like turning, honing and reaming significantly reduce process time. An intelligent clamping technique ensures that raw pieces with major form errors can be picked up so that the required geometrical tolerances of the final part can be achieved process-reliably. Quickly changeable grinding arms and cassette solutions for grinding wheels reportedly ensure maximum comfort for technology changes while shortening set-up times to a minimum. Mechanical interfaces equipped with RFID chips guarantee the clear allocation of a tooling, dressing and grinding strategy to the workpiece. According to the manufacturers, a maximum reproducibility of the processing results can be ensured, providing a first-time-right success, even with complex workpieces. As a result, the KN5Ci is said to meet all the requirements of Industry 4.0.
