Carl Hirschmann initiates cooperative research project with the university Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule (RWTH)
Carl Hirschmann GmbH supports activities at the university Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) in Aachen with a cooperative project together with machine manufacturer GF Machining Solution (Georg Fischer AG) and the study group EAK (Erosiver Arbeitskreis) of the RWTH. In mid-November, Dominik Gotthelf and Bernd Reiner, Sales Manager at Carl Hirschmann, visited the university in Aachen, where they handed over an FJR80NCYA30A rotating and indexing spindle.
This spindle is used in a wire EDM machine AgieCharmilles CUT P 350 from GF Machining Solutions to profile grinding wheels. "For us as initiator of the project, it was important to train the research project group in the use of our rotary spindle and the associated control system," said Bernd Reiner. In addition to the training, the meeting focused on a transfer of knowledge between the students and the two companies on technology and parameter settings. This is the basis for a further common research project and further investigations. The students are additionally supported by grinding wheel manufacturer Tyrolit.
We are pleased about this project with university RWTH Aachen and are looking forward to the results.
