The Ultramat CNC grinding machine is designed for high-volume production work in the aerospace and automotive industries, as well as high-precision, sub-contract machining for medical and motorsports applications. The machine features a one-piece bed design and is said to combine rigidity and high precision with a features that make it easy to operate in production environments. The Ultramat uses Jones & Shipman’s Windows-based, spreadsheet-style programming software so that operators do not need to input machining code. The control system is built around a GE Fanuc Intelligent Terminal and is said to reduce the time needed for operator training as well as setup and changeover times.
Editor PickWhen 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.
