Depending on customer requirements and the product spectrum to be finished, the machine is equipped with matching honing units. The Gehring honing control promises precision controlled stroke speeds and reversal precision. An optional feature allows the stroke to be executed via a ball screw or a linear motor. The L630 machine is a honing centre that can be equipped with one or two honing spindles. Depending on the machining task and the batch size, this type of machine can be equipped with a fixed or rotary table and up to eight workstations.
