xpressCube

The xpressCube combines a powerful control with comfortable visualization via 12.1“ TFT-Touch-Display in one unit. The user-friendly and easy operator screens allow fast and effective realization of manufacturing tasks in prototype, small batch and mass production. The new xpressCube meets the Machine Directive 2006 / 42 / EG while being very comfortable to operate. Direct input of grinding parameters via the display. All functions can be switched on and off via the display as well as all messages being provided in plain text on the display. The new xpressCube offers a variety of well-structured grinding programs:

  • Reciprotation grinding
  • Plunge grinding
  • ECO grinding (combined plunge and reciprocation grinding)
  • Grinding with manual feed via hand wheel

Parameters can be altered during machining and take effect immediately. Optimal quality can therefore be achieved with complex materials and machining tasks. Set-up of workpieces, grinding wheel and dressing units is easy with the “Teach” function. Dressing can be performed automatically with tablemounted or head-mounted dressing units. The new xpressCube enables beginners and experienced grinders alike to start producing quickly and safely.

xpressCube Pro

Fast and easy profile grinding even without CNC knowledge. Simple surface grinding with the option of upgrading to a profile grinding machine? No problem. The controls package xpressCube Pro is based on the hardware of the xpressCube. A software update can provide the Pro functionality if desired in the future. Due to the intuitive operation and multitude of hint features the complete functionality can be utilized even without special skills. Via the Operator Management “rights” can be assigned and individual settings can be adjusted based on the operator. Grinding programs as well as dressing profiles need only be entered via parameter input and don’t have to be programmed from scratch. If a profile should not be available, user programs can be uploaded at any time.

The Pro version is offered with following options:

  • Groove / face grinding
  • Profile dressing
  • Wheel management
  • Program management
  • Operator management
  • Fully automatic balancing

Siemens Sinumerik 840D

The Sinumerik 840D is capable of handling all complex grinding tasks and profiles. This control package can interpolate up to 5 axes. This enables the machine to precisely create cone shapes, spherical shapes and threedimensional curves. There are no limits when creating wheel profiles. The 840D is capable of safely controlling large and complex grinding centers with a multitude of axes and several spindles. The user interface is designed very user friendly. ELB has created proven grinding cycles for easy parameter input via graphically structured templates. An additional advantage of this controls package is the optional Cadnology software. Cadnology converts even extremely complex profiles directly from a CAD-file into contour data for the machine. Of course, the multitude of controlsspecific features, e.g. plain text display, language toggle, fast internal communication via Profibus, interfaces to peripheral equipment and data recorders or remote service, are also available on all ELB grinding machines.
