To ensure that precision metal-cutting machine tools are mechanically sound, accurately designed, and meticulously built, one will always need to choose the right brand.

This is where Hardinge come in. Focused on providing cost-effective solutions for its clients, Hardinge—a leading global provider of advanced, high precision metal-cutting machine tool solutions and aftermarket tooling and accessories—has honed its production capabilities over 125 years on building improved machines and designs. Hardinge offers the most extensive variety of metal-cutting turning machines, grinding machines, machining centres, collets, chucks, index fixtures, repair parts, standard and speciality workholding devices, and other machine tool accessories. Hardinge’s solutions can be found in various industries, including aerospace, agricultural, automotive, construction, consumer products, defence, energy, medical, technology and transportation. Headquartered in Berwyn, PA, the company designs, manufactures, and distributes machine tools in over sixty-five countries across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Hardinge’s newly developed universal cylindrical grinding machine KELLENBERGER® 10 is a standard machine that can be customized with a wide range of options. Optimized for cost efficiencies and throughput time, this energy-efficient machine is universally ideal for all workforces. With a distance between centres of 1000 mm and a centre height of 200 mm, the device covers a wide range of parts. High availability, process safety, reliability, productivity flexibility, and easy retooling are the hallmarks of this machine. “The KELLENBERGER® 10 leads both beginners and experts in precision grinding quickly and easily.

The standard machine has an unmatched price-performance ratio in procurement and maintenance,” adds Johannes Murer, Grinding Product Sales Specialist at Hardinge. The novel solution also guarantees the highest reliability and ease of service.

The KELLENBERGER® 10 is designed as a hooked machine. Its base is mechanically stable to minimize external influences on the grinding result. The grinding head can optionally be equipped with two ø 500/400 mm O.D. grinding wheels for high productivity and flexibility. Powerful high-frequency, grease-lubricated I.D. grinding spindles with direct drive is available in two speed ranges (6,000 – 40,000 rpm and 10,000 – 60,000 rpm). What’s more? The KELLENBERGER® 10 is equipped with a cost-optimized Fanuc 0i-TFP CNC control with a 19” touch screen and consistent Kellenberger operation. It flaunts fast, intuitive programming and retooling via BLUE Solution with Object Guide, even for inexperienced operators.

A leading international provider of advanced metal-cutting and material-cutting tool solutions and accessories, Hardinge plans to shift the manufacturing of its milling and turning machining centre solutions from the Hardinge Taiwan plant to its plant in Elmira, NY, USA. This strategic manufacturing transition focuses on product development, supply chain, and assembly. Hardinge will now supply customers with a robust line of innovative, high-quality milling and turning products assembled in the USA. With locations, employees, channel partners, and service staff across the globe, its expansive global footprint allows them to support its client. Hardinge’s international team of engineers, applications, and product specialists helps every product line no matter where it is made.

  • Hardinge offers the most extensive variety of metal-cutting turning machines, grinding machines, machining centres, collets, chucks, index fixtures, repair parts, standard and speciality workholding devices, and other machine tool accessories.


Further, Hardinge will be investing significantly to transition its Elmira plant to build new solutions and modernize its U.S. manufacturing operations to produce to the highest level of quality in the industry. The expansion and modernization of the facility will make the company one of the most advanced precision tools for manufacturing plants globally, resulting in a substantial increase in the workforce by the end of the fiscal year 2021. Following the transition, the Taiwan location will continue to operate as one of Hardinge’s regional sales and fulfilment facilities and a global engineering centre supporting its international customers’ needs.
