The xpressCube combines a powerful control with comfortable visualization via 10.4“ TFT-Touch-Display in one unit.

The user-friendly and easy operator screens allow fast and effective realization of manufacturing tasks in prototype, small batch and mass production. The new xpressCube meets the Machine Directive 2006 / 42 / EG while being very comfortable to operate.

Direct input of grinding parameters via the display. All functions can be switched on and off via the display as well as all messages being provided in plain text on the display. The new xpressCube offers a variety of well-structured grinding programs.

  • Reciprotation grinding
  • Plunge grinding
  • ECO grinding (combined plunge and reciprocation grinding)
  • Grinding with manual feed via hand wheel

Parameters can be altered during machining and take effect immediately. Optimal quality can therefore be achieved with complex materials and machining tasks.
