Designed for automated production environments, the GA-26T cylindrical grinding machine performs high-volume OD grinding. While the workpiece is held stationary, the grinding wheel traverses back and forth. Equipped with features designed to enhance the automation process, the rigid grinder provides simultaneous dressing and loading and fixed table construction. The rigid hydrodynamic wheel spindle provides high surface finishes and eliminates chipping of brittle materials such as carbides and ceramics as well as dulling at the edges of splines and other intermittent shaft surfaces. Additionally, the spindle includes an offset radial load equal to 1 µm per 100 kg (0.000018" per 100 lbs) and a rotating accuracy of 0.01 µm (0.0000004"). Available in both angle and plain head, the machine’s design supports cost-effectiveness for production lines of small- to mid-size parts.
IMTS 2016 is right around the corner!
Now is the time to register for IMTS 2016, which runs September 12-17 in Chicago, Illinois. As the show approaches, please check our IMTS 2016 Zone for new product updates. We will also have information about new technology, pavilions to explore and conference information. In the meantime, check out IMTSTV for segments about the show and what’s new in the world of manufacturing technology.
