openLine
The machine with a view

The concept of the openLine follows the ELB-principle of absolute separation of the three machine axes. This principle has been proven a thousand times over and makes this machine perfectly suitable for prototype and small volume production. Highest geometrical precision and an attractive price makes this machine line so appealing. This machine is completely manufactured in Germany and meets the highest quality standards. Quick and uncomplicated manual grinding (adjusting and fitting) is as easy as finish grinding in automatic mode. The complete features of the basic machine as well as the ELB-technology proven over the past 50+ years make the purchase of an openLine machine a very economical investment.

The basic openLine machine is fully equipped with everything required to grind. A coolant filtration unit with a capacity of 80 l/min, flushing system with table rinse hose to clear the work area, a wheel flange, a grinding wheel, an electro-magnetic chuck for work piece clamping and all required media are included.

Optionally, this model can be equipped for simple profile grinding tasks.
