Rush Machinery’s FC-250EX and FC-700EX automatic diamond and CBN wheel truing and dressing machines are designed for truing and dressing flats, angles and radii on single- and multiple-wheel packs. The machines feature PLC-controlled, automatic dressing cycles with servo-driven dressing wheel in-feed; power swing; and oscillation. The machines can be fully enclosed for operator safety and dust control.
The machines are designed to increase efficiency and accuracy by profiling, modifying profiles and truing wheels offline of production grinding machinery. The machines are simple to operate, quick, accurate, cost-effective, and feature wheel-diameter capacities ranging to 28" (700 mm), the company says.
The one-piece, cast iron base is designed to provide extra rigidity and minimize vibration. Standard features include ExVision, a computer-driven vision system with a software program specifically designed for the machines and their various applications; an automatic power zoom; and a two-axis DRO for measurement.
When Grinding Is Like Turning
This shop leverages a high-speed peel-grinding process that resembles turning to effectively grind challenging materials such as carbide. Inherently low grinding forces mean high material-removal rates are possible.
