A first for Siemens and PTG Holroyd

A first for Siemens and PTG Holroyd

The new machine, called the HG350-G, is also the first from PTG Holroyd – and believed to be the first in the UK – to use Siemens’ new Sinumerik ONE future-proof CNC, the successor to the automation specialist’s 840D CNC.


PTG Holroyd has committed in excess of £1.6M to develop its brand new gear grinding centre, a machine that the company said has been designed to give it a significant edge in the horizontal form grinding of high-quality gears.


“We plan to build two HG350-G machines to begin with,” said Mark Curran, regional sales director. “One will remain on site in Rochdale for R&D purposes. The other has been purchased by a long-standing PTG Holroyd customer.”


In designing the HG350-G, PTG Holroyd said its goal was to offer its customers much more than a new generation machine for the one-off and batch grinding of high-accuracy precision spur and helical gears, as well as worms and screws of up to 350mm in diameter.


“We wanted to create a machine with class-leading integrated safety and failsafe features, rich, real-time reporting of machine health and performance data, as well as the highest levels of industrial security,” said Curran.


“Other non-negotiables for the HG350-G included being exceptionally intuitive for operators, easily able to accommodate each customer’s industry.
