Since 1964 our company is engaged with all capabilities of dressing technology for the conditioning of grinding wheels.
Gerhard Könnemann M.Sc. started before the official registration with the distibution of ball bearings and successfully practiced himself early in the grinding of ceramic roller bearings for the plane industry. Therefore contacts within europe followed, with a special affinity for France. To gain controll of a special application he, back then, ground the outside rings of ceramic bearings for the Concorde and made a name for himself inside of the “grinding society”.
With the relocation into a small apartment at todays company location in Mainaschaff, the first business was made under the name of KW-Antriebstechnik GmbH. 1983 it was rebranded to KW Abrichttechnik GmbH, because over time the dressing technology of KW proven itself at big renowned manufacturers.
With over 18,000 built machines, special spindles as well as arbors worldwide we have extensive experience in grinding and dressing technology. The bidirectional mounted arbor with different diameters: Our idea!
