Manufacturing & Technology Companies We Represent
ELB-Schliff Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH has been producing surface and profile grinding machines for over 60 years in Babenhausen (Hessen), Germany. The company was founded by Edmund Lang in the city of Babenhausen which led to the name “ELB-Schliff”.
Today’s product line includes surface, profile and creep-feed grinding machines as well as a wide range of highly efficient production systems. Based on the decades of ELB-Schliff’s experience, there is hardly a grinding problem which has not already been solved.
For solving their customer’s processing tasks, several modular structured systems are available. They rely on machines with a clear separation of the main grinding movements in X, Y and Z axes for surface grinding tasks. This arrangement is a prerequisite for continuous high precision.
For creep-feed grinding applications, machines with traveling tables and traveling columns are both utilized depending on the application. Large work-pieces are processed by utilizing machines with a gantry design ensuring the highest precision.
