Henninger Center Grinder 2000

Centre grinding machines of the ZS 2000 series


The Henninger centre grinding machines of the ZS 2000 series machine workpieces on a horizontal basis. Both centres of a workpiece can be ground simultaneously. The centre grinding machine can be traded manually or automatically. There are different ZS 2000 models depending on the requirement for weight and length of the workpieces.

The grinding process can take place with a stationary or rotating workpiece. The aim, as with all centre grinding machines, is to achieve a round centre of the highest quality.

What are the benefits of centre grinding with the ZS 2000 series?


Centre grinding with the ZS 2000 series brings high precision to the entire machining process. The perfected centre hole achieves roundness up to 1 µm and below.

Like all other Henninger products, the ZS 2000 centre grinding machines are characterised by a long service life.

Handling with the horizontal machine is easier than with the vertical version, as the workpiece is in the same position as in the subsequent grinding process on e.g. the cylindrical grinding machine. Due to the easy handling and the simultaneous grinding of the centres, the cycle time is considerably reduced.

How do the ZS 2000 series centre grinders work?


The deformed centring holes are reworked after the hardening process. The two aligned vises clamp the workpiece. The grinding heads move planetary and thus grind both centres simultaneously.

With pre-ground workpieces, the workpiece can be rotated in the vice with the stationary spindle. This makes the centre aligned with the axis of rotation.

After machining the roundness in the centre corresponds to the roundness of the workpiece. This method provides a high precision run-out.

For which applications are centre grinders of the ZS 2000 series used by our customers?


Typical workpieces machined with the horizontal centre grinding machines are gearboxes in the automotive sector, shafts, tools (reamers, drills, milling cutters, countersinks, honing tools, etc.).
