GROB presents latest technologies at the AMB in Stuttgart

The world of machining is completely different from the one that existed at the time the last AMB was held over four years ago. While the topic of “electromobility” has undergone an historic change in mechanical engineering, machining itself has progressed considerably. As the traditional longline machining business dwindles, the potential inherent in the universal machine business continues to grow; particularly in the automotive, automation, mechanical engineering, die and mold industries, as well as in the aerospace, energy and medical technology sectors.

Innovative machining technology for all industries

To keep on top of this development, GROB has adapted its product range to reflect the market requirements and will use the 20th anniversary of the AMB to exhibit its latest technologies: from the G150 5axis universal machining center with small GRCR12 robot cell to the G440 4axis universal machining center with PSSR1800 rotary pallet storage system and the big G520F machining center for frame structure and chassis parts. With these exhibition highlights, GROB will once again demonstrate its machine concept with 4axis and 5axis machining centers offering nearly unlimited possibilities for milling and turning parts made of a wide variety of materials. No matter whether aerospace, mechanical engineering, toolmaking and mold design industries, automotive sector, or medical technology, GROB machining centers are optimized to meet the diverse requirements of all industries.

F series: crossover series for all important emobility components

The best example for the diversification of the GROB machine portfolio is the F series: A typical crossover series for all important emobility components. With the F series machines, GROB provides the ideal solution for lightweight construction components for electric drives (such as stator and battery housings, subframes or frame structure components) as well as compact and costeffective machines whose larger work areas provide greater dynamics and the perfect conditions for machining aluminum. At the AMB, GROB will be presenting the G520F, a twospindle machine for the parallel machining of two parts. It has an interference diameter of up to 1,200 mm in the B’axis and 1,200 mm in the A’axis (without restriction), with a maximum part length of up to 1,500 mm (with restricted axis swivel range).

GMP300 additive manufacturing ‘made by GROB’

Additive manufacturing is becoming increasingly important in particular for prototype manufacturing, but also for small and mediumsized series components, for highly customizable components, or those with complex geometry. In light of this, GROB developed Liquid Metal Printing (LMP) for forwardlooking, economical, as well as flexible additive manufacturing process that eliminates the disadvantages of traditional additive manufacturing in the metalworking sector. With the GMP300, GROB provides its customers with a production system for the manufacture of nearnetshape components in the Additive Manufacturing range for the first time.

It celebrated its premiere at the GROB inhouse exhibition in May this year and will now enjoy its very first appearance at an international mechanical engineering exhibition. GROB involvement in the AMB Trend Lounge GROB will also be present at the Trend Lounge with Trend Area at the AMB, focusing on the topics of “Additive Manufacturing” and “Digitalization”.

On Tuesday, September 13, Dr. Martin Otter will give a talk on the topic of “GROB Liquid Metal Printing economical production of nearnetshape components”, while Mr. Tobias Gödde will present the topic of “Digitalization solutions made by GROB from maintenance through to the tool cycle” on Friday, September 16.

German Wankmiller, Chairman of the GROB Board & CEO, had this to say on the topic: “Even now, we already have an attractive offer of apps that allow our customers to monitor machines and perform various evaluations. This gives the customer maximum transparency across their entire production process. This is enhanced with simulation possibilities, solutions for unmanned operation, and a comprehensive package for service and maintenance.”

And GROB Chief Sales Officer Christian Müller adds: “Several years of absence from exhibitions have shown that there is no substitute for the direct exchange that is only possible in person. Taking part in the AMB exhibition for the seventh time, this year we will continue a long tradition of our company’s involvement in the exhibition”.
