The model FC-250W wheel truing and dressing machine from Rush Machinery is designed for turning and dressing flats, angles and radii on diamond and CBM single-wheel and multiple-wheel packs. The machine is said to increase efficiency and accuracy by profiling, modifying profiles and turning wheels offline from the production grinding machinery.
A computer-driven vision system features software specifically designed for the FC-250W and its applications. The system is equipped with an automatic power zoom and a two-axis DRO for measurement. Slides and ways are fully enclosed for minimal wear and extended machine life. The heavy-duty, one-piece, cast iron base provides rigidity and minimizes vibration. Options include an automatic zoom positioning (AZP) computer-controlled two-axis slide for camera positioning, an automated version with PLC and servo control for truing wheel in-feed and pivot axes, a dust-collection system, and quick-change spindle adapters for most CNC and manual grinders.
When 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.
