Landis Gardner
Landis' core technologies include expertise in hydrostatic bearings, CNC axis control, superabrasive applications, multiple-axis servo coordination, machine/sensor integration, motorized spindles, and advanced computer-based machine control systems. Landis is also a leading developer of sophisticated software tools for monitoring and controlling grinding processes. Numerous joint research and development efforts with major automotive customers and leading university researchers around the world are currently in place.

An example of the results of such efforts are the Landis-designed CBN grinding systems which promise significant productivity increases in areas such as camshaft and crankshaft grinding. Other technologies, including linear motor axis drives, are also being applied.

Gardner's latest generation of double-disc grinders, the G-Series, offers an unprecedented level of performance and economy, in addition to traditional Gardner precision and productivity. Available in both horizontal and vertical configurations, these high-performance, value-engineered double-disc grinding systems have re-defined the state-of-the-art in what many had believed to be a mature technology.

The company's Gardner Abrasives operation is a recognized world leader in superabrasive technology for both disc and cylindrical grinders, and retains technological leadership in conventional abrasive applications as well. And the company's CITCO operation has continued as a world leader in the application of high-productivity diamond and superabrasive tooling for both abrasive wheel and dressing applications, as well as single-point tooling.
