Quality and reliability

Knoll Feinmechanik GmbH is a recognised specialist in automation solutions for industrial assembly processes where the highest degree of precision is required. Since 2004, the family-owned company has relied on ETP-EXPRESS hydraulic clamping connection for its sophisticated ski service machines.

“Since we fitted our ski service machines with the ETP-EXPRESS hydraulic clamping connections, the ski grinding quality has improved significantly,”says Johannes Höfflin, Design Manager at Knoll Feinmechanik GmbH.

Quality and reliability

Exceptional quality and reliability are what Knoll Feinmechanik GmbH's customers expect. Micrometre precision is crucial when it comes to grinding skis and snowboards. Whether it is for ski rental providers or professional ski racing teams, the ski service machines grind up to 25,000 pairs of skis every year. The ETP-EXPRESS clamping connection guarantees a unique true running accuracy, which means that the waste rate is close to zero. Two to six ETP-EXPRESS connections are installed in the various grinding machines. Not only does this guarantee the highest standards for each grinding operation, but it also saves material.

Easy handling and assembly

In addition to their long-lasting quality, what makes the ETP-EXPRESS hydraulic clamping connection particularly impressive is that they are so easy and quick to assemble. Balancing is no longer necessary and there is virtually no risk of axial shifting during assembly . Even after being assembled several times, the clamping bush retains its unique true running accuracy. ETP-EXPRESS' consistent quality and first-class service provide the ideal basis for a long-term partnership – that and the perfectly grinded skis, of course.

“Never touch a running system – the micrometre-precise work and easy application using only one screw won me over forever. That is why we have been using the ETP-EXPRESS hydraulic clamping connections as standard for more than 15 years,” says Johannes Höfflin, Design Manager at Knoll Feinmechanik GmbH.
