A new kind of freedom and dynamism
GROB, a German family company that manufactures advanced 5-axis machining centers and automation systems, manufactures horizontal 5-axis machining centers in four different size classes (G350, G550, G750 and G1050) up to piece size Ø 1,600 mm and height 1,500 mm and pallet size 1250 x 1000 mm. Spindle options are plentiful and include power of 100 kW, torque of 2,500 Nm and revolutions up to 30,000 rpm.
GROB’s exceptionally intelligent design allows for maximum shaft freedom as well as top dynamism, strength and precision in a very compact size. Three linear axes and two rotary axes (A = 225 and B = 360, which can also be used for turning) by simultaneous interpolation. In addition, the horizontal spindle enables excellent stability, and the long Z movement of the spindle enables the utilization of large tools without a reduction in the maximum workpiece size, as well as the use of small tools. The upside down swivel table enables superior chip removal even in dry machining, as well as a fast disc-type tool changer for extremely fast tool changes (2.7 s from chip to chip).
GROB aims to provide challenging songs with the lowest cost per part, new opportunities for designers, top quality songs and first class service. Founded in 1926, the family business, with a turnover of approximately EUR 1.3 billion and 6,000 employees, is run by Christian Grob, representing the third generation. The company has four factories located in Germany, USA, Brazil and China. GROB itself manufactures everything related to machines and their automation solutions as far as possible. The company offers machines from compact pallet automation solutions to large FM systems and automation of entire factories. GROB also invests heavily in software development and Industry 4.0-compliant digitization.
