The machine incorporates the two-spindle concept to enable grinding of a workpiece on one spindle while the workpiece on the second spindle is changed and synchronized with the threads of the grinding wheel. Each workspindle has its own meshing probe. The probes are fixed on the workspindle turret to enable the synchronization of the grinding wheel and workpiece during the turret rotation. High workpiece spindle speeds ranging to 3,000 rpm spin the grinding oil off the part during the turret rotation when the grinding operation is completed.
