The Star SU Booth 4013 will be presenting advanced manufacturing solutions from both machine tools and cutting tools.
Machine Tool Solutions
Star SU will introduce our hobbing and shaping machine portfolio through the newly created company Samputensili CLC S.r.l. Star SU will interactively display the CLC 260 H and CLC 500 H – two high performance modular horizontal gear hobbing/milling machines, which can be customized for any type of gear, shaft and worms up to a total length of 5000 mm.
Star NXT Tool & Cutter Grinder
The NEW Star NXT linear CNC tool and cutter grinding machine sharpens both straight and spiral gash hob designs up to 8” OD x 10” OAL. With a small footprint and maximized grind zone, the NXT also sharpens disk, shank and helical type shaper cutters, Scudding cutters, and a wide range of round tools, making it a versatile tool room machine.
In addition, our complete library of gear manufacturing machinery solutions will be available, including the Samputensili SG 160 SKYGRIND - the first gear dry grinding machine in the world with a patented process. A ground-breaking concept that totally eliminates the need for cutting oils during the grinding of gears after heat treatment with a significant reduction in the cost of consumables and a considerable improvement of environmental impact.
