processable workpieces

  • gears and shafts with outer straight and inside straight helical gears 
  • gear related profiles
  • compressor rotors
  • ball screw tracks
  • worms
  • rotary pistons
  • pump spindles & metering screws
  • gerotors
  • vane pump rotors
  • Non-dressable grinding tools with CBN- and diamond covering 
  • Dressable tools with or without tip dresser for workpiece related or flexible dressing
  • Measuring machines and instruments
KNM C series

The machines of the KNM C series guarantee ultimate form-, gear- and 3D-measuring technology, also for medium size and large workpieces. In connection with a direct driven, air bearing rotary table (active 4th axis) the metrological characteristics of a form measuring machine are combined with the strengths of a gear- respectively coordinate measuring machine.

KNe 3G

With the KNe series, KAPP NILES offers users in the field of gear grinding an inexpensive entry into precision machining. Designed on a common platform, the KNe 3P profile grinding machine and the KNe 3G generating grinding machine are designed as solutions for the flexible production of small and medium lot sizes.

ZE series

ZE series are designed for grinding gears. Their concept represents accuracy, long lifetime and ergonomics. Basic machines are equipped with coolant filtration unit, dresser, tailstock, in process measuring system, balancing unit, acoustic emission sensor and software for grinding and measuring of involute profiles. No anchoring or fixing of the machine is necessary. Outstanding features are a well dimensioned rotary table with electrical direct drive, hydrostatic bearing and large table bores.

News & Innovations

KN 5Ciprecision machining centre

The KN 5Ci is the ideal precision machining centre for complex internal grinding requirements within 100 – 440 mm diameter range. Especially gearing and function surfaces such as drillings and plane faces can primarily be machined by grinding in single clamping. Consequently, even severe shape and positional tolerances that are required for precision gearing in robot and aerospace applications can be realised.

Complementary machining processes such as turning, honing and reaming significantly reduce machining time and furthermore guarantee excellent surface qualities as well as specific tribological properties of the components.

An intelligent adaptive clamping technique ensures that even raw pieces with form errors in a clearly noticeable double-digit μm-range can be picked up so that the required shape and positional tolerances of the final part can be met process-safely. Loading can be performed manually as well as automated using robots or portals.
