The basic single-spindle module is designed for future automation with removable side enclosure panels to facilitate flow-through part processing. It is available with a fixed tooling plate or servo rotary table with 12-position rotary air union for fixture control. The machine’s cast-polymer base provides vibration damping and structural rigidity.
Fully automated versions can be specified with the servo rotary table or linear part transfer, integrated part handling systems and as many as four spindles. For unmanned cellular processing, the machine can be equipped with integrated post-process air gaging to provide closed-loop control of bore size and geometry. Post-process air gaging with one to four servo columns can provide size, taper and straightness feedback control. Matched with CGT Krossgrinding tools or MMT multi-stone mandrels, the air-gage-equipped machine can automatically control hole size to accuracies of 0.00001" (0.25 µm). A match-honing package can also be added.
