Hexagon Global S – The Leader in Coordinate Measuring Machines

The GLOBAL S coordinate measuring machine (CMM) delivers measurement productivity tailored to your workflow, addressing the widest range of production requirements including throughput, precision, multi-purpose and shop-floor capabilities.

With productivity being the key competitive driver in manufacturing, it’s crucial that the measurement process provides the data required for the application and fits seamlessly into the production workflow and cycle times. The GLOBAL S coordinate measuring machine (CMM) provides superior measurement performance and enhanced productivity for your specific production needs.

Designed by Pininfarina and powered by the Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Enhanced Productivity Series (EPS) concept, GLOBAL S combines smart technologies including user experience enhancements, advanced software and eco-friendly options to provide measurement solutions with three performance levels: Green, Blue and Chrome, to suit the requirements of your application. EPS machines allow you to select your main productivity driver: throughput, precision, flexibility or shop-floor measurement, and configure the machine with the best capability package for that driver. GLOBAL S can also be fully-customized to suit the most challenging production environments.

Through a highly-configurable technology platform, GLOBAL S ensures that quality engineers creating measurement routines, operators executing the inspection, and quality managers analysing the data all have the solution needed to ensure continuous improvement in the production workflow.

It is time to get Horizontal about your Five Axis Machining - Grob

From system business to a universal machining center

   With its universal machines, GROB has introduced a series of universal machining centers which proves the technological know-how and developing competence of the GROB engineers in this market segment, which is relatively new to the company.

   The universal machining centers G350, G550, G750 and G1050 successfully complement the G-series and open up an even larger application range for the existing G-modules. As all modules from the G-series, they originate from the same modular construction system, are characterized by their compact design and enable excellent visibility and best accessibility to the work areas.

The GROB universal machining centers are used in a wide range of different industries. From machining complex and high precision mold and prototype parts with compound angled surfaces and holes, aircraft and medical parts with partly 5-axis simultaneous machining and in the optoelectronics industry, through to the pure contract manufacturers, who want to be equipped for any tasks. All of these are customers wanting to produce plastic to stainless steel workpieces or only in small to medium-sized series production using milling technology. Even fiber composite material machining such as CFRP and GFRP is possible on the GROB standalone machining center.

Know the Tradition of your machine tool manufacture- Grob Tradition over generations

Tradition – Know-how over generations

The success story of the GROB GROUP begins in 1926 with the foundation of the company Ernst Grob Werkzeug- und Maschinenfabrik by Ernst Grob, who was awarded an honorary doctorate in engineering sciences in 1984 by the Technical University of Stuttgart. A success story that has been significantly shaped throughout ninety years by the outstanding personalities of the Grob family.

And it is a long path the company has ventured down from the first standard product, a stationary heat engine, through to the highly modern, completely hydraulic-free, fully CNC-controlled machining center. A path that describes the innovative force and superior technological know-how of the company. But also a path paved with all the ups and downs the company had to face, in particular during the German post-war period.

Culminating in a special factor in setting the course of the company in 1952, when Burkhart Grob, the son of the company founder, takes over the company, which had suffered extensive damage in the war, following his graduation as a Dipl.-Ing. at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. He very quickly recognised the potential of the automotive industry that was developing at the time and accomplished, not only the reconstruction of the company with its high quality and technically advanced production machines, but also maintaining contact to the automotive industry. In the last few years alone, numerous patents have been applied for, all based on his groundbreaking technical innovations.

A long path that enabled the small machine tool factory from Munich in the thirties to develop into a global payer and worldwide technology and market leader in the construction of special-purpose machines. The company has shown a very successful development, has been led by a strong management with high product innovation, an entrepreneurial instinct and a very strong social commitment. In recognition of his achievements as an engineer and entrepreneur, Burkhart Grob was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the University of Augsburg in 1988, amongst other things.

Hwacheon High Speed, High Precision Hi-M G1 VMC for Graphite

Hwacheon Machinery America, Inc.'s new Hi-M G1 vertical machining center (VMC) is specially designed to cut graphite. Its quick and precise performance makes it suitable for dry cutting graphite electrode material used in die mold work. The rigid yet compact structure, with a design based on 3D/FEM analysis, and wide LM guides for X/Y/Z axes provide accuracy.

For high-speed operation, the 24,000 RPM spindle is integrated with a high power motor, and without any parts to transfer power between the motor and spindle. This design minimizes vibration, noise and power loss during high-speed rotation. In addition, a bearing grease lubrication system and synchronous temperature control decreases the influence of external temperature variation and improves smoothness.

For quality results, the Hi-M G1 is engineered with a dustproof/waterproof spindle and an advanced dust reduction system. This system includes a sealed roof design that collects the fine dust generated during the machine process. A dustproof air curtain system prevents dust inflow into each axis. Included as standard, the dust collector operates with 5 HP air volume. The design of the Hi-M G1 door enables convenient cleaning.

The user-friendly Hi-M G1 includes a Siemens 828D controller. It provides flexible, interactive programming, as well as controls that enable high productivity.

Hi-M G1 specifications include a spindle coolant system, an HSK-E40 spindle taper, a 29.52" x 23.62" table with an 881.84 lb. load capacity and a 16 tool ATC. The machine occupies 83.26" x 87.8" of floor space and weighs 10,582 lbs. The dimensions of the dust collector are 38.18" x 38.18".

Other applications of the Hi-M G1 include high precision graphite automotive parts machining.

Tooling interference becoming a problem with your 5-axis machine? GROB doesn’t have those problems!

The Grob swiveling/rotary table and the horizontally arranged spindles ensure a high degree if productivity, best accessibility and high stability. The 5-axis universal machining centers are ideally suitable for workpieces requiring 5-sided machining, with compound angle holes and surfaces with forms and flow profiles and for precision components.

First of all, the 5-axis universal machining center with its swiveling/rotary table has the advantage over the swivel head machines that angled surfaces need not be interpolated over two or even three axes. Equally sized workpieces can be machined with shorter linear axes. In competition with swing table cinematics and a vertical milling spindle, our 5-axis universal machining center has the obvious advantage of a horizontally positioned spindle and the associated improved chip discharge as well as increased stability.

With their automatic pallet-changing options and an additional tool magazine they are ideally equipped for any type of automation. They combine the substantial experience potential of the GROB engineers in the field of automated production systems. The excellent accessibility to the working area is a distinct advantage for job shops with small production batches that need to change over frequently.

Check out the video of the Production of a mold insert out of steel using the latest machining strategies on a G350 - Generation 2 with the new HMI control panel GROB-Pilot4M.

Premier is proud to be the exclusive source for all the GROB solutions in the state of Wisconsin and UP of Michigan.
