Latest Technology for Highest Demands

(PresseBox) (Vreden, ) Since recently, Saueressig GmbH + Co. KG has been deploying a cylindrical grinding machine made by the machine manufacturer GIORIA. With an investment volume of approx. one million Euros, this was one of the major single investments made for the machine park in the SAUERESSIG Engineering division. This grinding machine of the latest generation complements the machine park and broadens the machining range in the long term.

Cylinders and rotationally symmetric components with most different surfaces (hard layers, chrome etc.) can be processed. Crowning and curve finishing can be executed in outstanding precision and with excellent surface quality. SAUERESSIG uses the GIORIA grinding machine for producing special cylinders and for wage-work.

The dimensions that can be processed are outstanding: diameters of 900 mm and face widths of up to 6000 mm can be processed highly accurate with the three grinding heads and an inserted finishing unit. Another specialty is the inserted measuring system. During the grinding process itself, the grinding result is controlled and recorded in real-time.

"This grinding machine is an investment for the future. We can realize high-quality products for our customers," says Alwin Goering, Global Manager Cylinders at Saueressig GmbH & Co. KG.


SAUERESSIG produces in Vreden/Germany and at another five sites (Poznan/Poland, Bristol/Great Britain, Izmir/Turkey, Velikiy Novgorod/ Russia and Amman/Jordan) among others more than 150,000 printing and embossing cylinders per annum. The main part is formed by engraving cylinders, which are supplied to printing houses worldwide. Not only billions of product packages are printed and finished with these cylinders, but also many millions of linear metres of decorative material for floorings and wallpapers.
