This extremely compact machine concept delivers a level of productivity that will amaze even experienced grinding specialists. The S11 embodies an extremely compact design paired with high productivity and Swiss precision. Energy efficiency included and certified by the Blue Competence Label.
Compact design – high precision
This comparison emphasizes the direction things are taking in cylindrical grinding: greater productivity combined with an extremely compact design. However, when people hear the term “compact” in the machine tool industry, the following questions are bound to be asked:
“Is the Studer S11 sufficiently stable and precise” and “Is the Studer S11 easily accessible despite its small size”?
The answer to both these questions is clearly yes. When it comes to grinding, precision is the be-all and end-all. The Thun specialists naturally have this in their genes. Initial empirical values with respect to precision are provided by the manufacture of injection nozzles for die-sels. This requires roundness tolerances under 5/10 µm in series and a straightness under 1 µm. These values are considerably undercut by the S11 in practice. This is ensured not only by Studer’s precision machine tool construction and an excellent heat management sys-tem but also by the in-process gauging and the control system.
