Unmatched flexibility in one clamping

Extended travel ranges and swivel angles without re-clamping

Perfect options - e.g. PowerGrind (electro-erosion conditioning process)

Evo Combi - 4-axis grinding center for machining the periphery and 2 K-Lands in a single clamping

The outstanding advantages of the Evo Combi

Low cost per workpiece
● Shorter grinding times thanks to very high material removal rates
● Short transfers due to agile handling and internal dressing
● Complete machining without re-clamping
● Standardized, compatible Agathon tools
● Fast product change due to off-line programming and graphic simulation
● Up to 50% cycle time reduction with PowerGrind
● Low-maintenance components
Flexibility (materials, process)
● K-Lands on both sides without re-clamping
● Extended swivel angles and travel ranges for significantly more geometries
● Free combination of various dressing methods
● Largest possible range of applications from IC 3.96 mm to OD 100 mm
● Suited for all common indexable insert materials
● Reduced energy requirements through consistent Eco-design


Maximum availability
● High autonomy with storage for up to 16 trays
● State-of-the-art, low-maintenance drives
● Short changeover/set-up times
● Designed and manufactured in Switzerland
● Fast, competent and efficient
