STUDER wins innovation prize for CT960

The Swiss grinding machine manufacturer won at the „Poznan International Fair“ the gold medal in the category „Innovations-Technologies-Machines Poland“
for the internal grinding machine CT960.


STUDER wins the gold medal for it’s internal cylindrical grinding machine CT960. The all-rounder with four spindles for complex grinding tasks has received revolutionary innovations in the area of the B-axis and the grinding spindle turret – for even greater precision and speed.  


Infinitely variable angular position in four ranges
The new turret is a very important component for complete machining. It enables the use of up to four grinding spindles and a measuring probe. This allows complete machining of workpieces in the same clamping as well as process-based measurement – with minimal auxiliary times combined with greater precision.
The swiveling time for 90° is < 2 seconds, for 270° < 3 seconds. The angular position of the grinding spindles is infinitely variable from –5° to +30° in all four positions.
The functions previously executed by means of mechanical indexing are now undertaken by the StuderSimCT software.

Fast and wear-free B-axis
The decisive innovation of the CT960 lies in the automatic B-axis of the workhead with a swiveling range of +61° to -91° and a direct drive, which enables very fast and precise positioning as well as very precise grinding with interpolation of the B-axis for grinding radii. Thanks to the new design the B-axis now has no contact surface,
is completely closed and consequently wear-free and moves even faster. With its precision of < 1/10,000° the machine is in the range of the barely measurable.
