The MX7 can machine unattended with a variety of tools ranging to 5/8″ (16 mm) in diameter.
Designed for rapid processing of batches of precision tools, the system offers a 10-second, automated wheel exchange and a 10-second workpiece change with its MLX integrated loader.
Six standard HSK 50 wheel packs offer production flexibility and the potential for unattended productivity.
A permanent-magnet, 20kW/27-hp (S1), 10,000-rpm spindle delivers high torque at lower rpm for carbide grinding applications.
The integrated pallet loader is designed to reduce setup time and boost productivity by changing tools within 10 seconds. The integration of the loader into the machine base also ensures repeatable loading to go along with the one gripper set for loading, thus reducing setup time.
Other available features include a high-speed headstock for wheel dressing and a secondary side dresser. When combined with iGrind application software, the MX7 becomes an affordable, flexible precision grinding machine, the company says.
