With the first common rail direct injector production vehicle in 1997, a new dimension in high pressures began, along with increased accuracies in the components of the pump, valve and injector system assemblies. Bahmüller has decisively contributed to this evolution in the serial production of diesel technology. The components became smaller, but the grinding tasks became increasingly more complex. Bahmüller also decisively advanced the combination of internal and external grinding on one part, by which more and more spindles were required in one clamping, into complex machining and brought unrivaled clamping and drive systems to the market, such as hydrostatically mounted middle clamping, in which the front and rear side of the part are ground simultaneously. Ever-shortening cycle times and the associated shortening of part changing times led Bahmüller to become a loader manufacturer, since this kind of flexible technology was not on the market.
