The BG1000H-T machine on exhibition has been developed to grind flat and round broaches. The BG range, which comprises high-precision profile grinding machines for the tool and mold industry, is reportedly able to handle workpieces with center distances of 2,000 mm and diameters of 200 mm. The advantages of the line singled out by the manufacturers include the fast retooling from flat to round tooling and the variety of grinding applications for rotation-symmetric components. The use of an optional measuring probe enables the tooth thickness and pitch for the profile grinding and the tooth pitch for the back taper to be measured.
