On the 30th of November the traditional annual dinner took place. This time the employees of GROB AG met with partners in the Mangerie in Egolzwil.
Besides the cosy get-together, Natalino Masilio received thanks for his many years of highly appreciated commitment.
Where waste generates steam
This year's company outing took the employees in the morning to Perlen to the ultra-modern waste incineration plant "Renergia".
After lunch at the restaurant Perle, man and woman could enjoy themselves in the most wonderful summer weather on the "Mostelberg", Sattel Hochstuckli.

Studer S33 – Cylindrical grinding with loading portal
It’s a particular concern of GROB AG to fulfil – as far as possible - its customer requirement into our own production facilities. Therefore, through the acquisition of the machine Studer S33 the necessary grinding capacity has been increased.
The S33 is a CNC controlled universal cylindrical grinding machine for small to medium sized parts into individual and series production. Complex parts can be ground in one setting. This is possible thanks to the grinding head with two spindles and to the driven synchronous tailstock, which doesn’t need a separately slaving device.

CTX alpha 500 from DMG
GROB AG has been using an additional DMG MORI machine in its turning shop since April 2015. The CTX alpha 500 is a top-quality and highly valuable addition to the company's machinery.
It now also has the ability to manufacture turned and milled parts that are highly accurate on both sides in one clamping process. This investment complements the Köpfer hobbing machine, on which gears can be positioned according to a surface, a hole or an edge.
CNC generating and profile grinding machine LCS 500
Two become one – an innovative step for mechanical engineering.
GROB AG Zahnradfabrik in Nebikon added Liebherr's CNC generating and profile grinding machine LCS 500 to its stable in July 2015. This machine's major asset is that it can execute generating and profile grinding in one process. This eliminates the drawbacks of profile and generating grinding machines while combining the benefits, increasing production efficiency and cutting costs – not just for the business, but for customers too.
