During EMO 2015 in Milan, Mikrosa rceieved the i-NOVO Award from the online industrial fair DirectIndustry for its centreless external cylindrical grinding machine KRONOS S 250. The machine is designed for high-volume production in the high-precision segment and for the plunge and throughfeed grinding of workpieces in the diameter range of 1.5 to 35 mm, and is constructed with a plunge grind width of up to 245 mm. Its new design is geared systematically towards ergonomy and user-friendliness. The control panel, for example, has quick and simple height adjustment. So, the operator can adapt it to his own needs and avert potential postural defects. The machine’s sliding doors, which can be opened wide, are equipped with ergonomic door handles featuring an adjusted grip profile. To simplify the cleaning process, the machine’s surface structures were improved and the materials used were optimised. The centreless external cylindrical grinding machine is fitted with a multi-coloured signal light with an integrated flash function, thereby, providing optimum status visibility.
