Traversing grinding saddle

Sturdy technology for absolute precision

Herkules offers a series of grinders with travelling tables that unite a number of technological benefits, such as the possibility to control the grinding process on the fly. High precision, mechanical rigidity and damping, as well as sophisticated measuring and control technology characterize the design of Herkules roll grinders.

Setting the benchmark

The strong ribbing guarantees the rigidity of the machines. The combination of hydrostatic and hydrodynamic guideways ensures highest precision and a long service life. Symmetrical load sharing results in absolute thermostability.
