When it comes to hard-finishing of high-precision gear teeth, users have set the bar high. Coolants need to effectively contribute toward achieving high performance in terms of safety, precision and machining speed. Participants learned how to reliably achieve this in the workshop “Development trends in gear-teeth grinding” held at the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology (IWU) in late 2014.

At the event, Meinhard Kiehl, Director of Marketing and Product Management at Rhenus Lub GmbH & Co KG, presented the latest findings to companies from the metalworking industry as well as suppliers. The renowned research institute invited interested parties to Chemnitz to promote a practical discussion of current challenges and perspectives regarding demanding gear teeth grinding processes.
