Klingelnberg opens large new assembly hall for gear hobbing and measuring machines – Metrology and Quality News

After only ten months of construction, the new assembly hall and the connected logistics center were officially opened at the premises of KLINGELNBERG GmbH in Winterhagen-Hückeswagen, Germany. Covering a total area of ​​8,000 square meters and located at the future Gustav-Adolf-Klingelnberg-Straße 1, the new facility is where Klingelnberg builds, among other things, large gear-cutting machines for use in industry. wind turbine, among others others and will be ready to move in by 2023 at the latest.

The ambitious project set within a tight deadline was completed in just ten months. The first groundbreaking took place in December 2021. Two months later, the concrete columns were installed, followed by the roof trusses in April. Thanks to modern building and plant engineering practices, optimal operating conditions have been created: the halls will be fully air-conditioned and equipped with two overhead cranes, one with a maximum working load of 25 tons and the other with a maximum load of 40 tons. with 10 wall-mounted traveling cranes with a capacity of 3.5 tons each, allowing the assembly of the most sensitive and heaviest machines.

Right from the planning and construction phases, energy efficiency and environmental protection were central concerns. The hall is built to meet climate efficiency requirements according to KfW 55 – a climate standard that is not particularly common for industrial buildings

The machine hall officially started operations on September 12, 2022, with the start of assembly of the Höfler spur gear grinding machines RAPID 1600 and VIPER 500. The Höfler spur gear grinding machine of the RAPID series is specialized for workpieces up to 8 meters in diameter and 100 tons, while the Höfler VIPER 500 spur gear grinding machine is designed for component diameters up to 500 mm and is therefore ideal for small and medium series. .

With its extensive machine portfolio covering a wide range of requirements, Klingelnberg is able to meet the needs of almost all sectors and industries. “With a volume of 20 million euros, this is the largest investment we have made in recent years. years. Nowadays, it is not easy to carry out such a complex construction project in budget and on time. On behalf of management, I would like to thank all of our employees who actively supported this project and ensured it was completed on time,” said Christoph Küster, CFO of the KLINGELNBERG Group.
