The recent addition of Studer’s CT internal cylindrical grinding machine series adds eight new models to United Grinding’s ID grinding product line, which also includes the Studer S120, S145 and S151. According to the company, the complete lineup offers a solution for workpieces of virtually all sizes and materials.
The S120 features a compact footprint and is suited for applications such as carbon sleeves, hydraulic valve components, fuel injector parts and other small precision components. The S145 is suited for medium-sized workpieces such as high-precision tooling, bearings, gears and mold components. The S151 grinds large, complex parts such as turbine rotors and vanes, gears, and automotive transmission components.
The product line is said to be ideal for small- to medium-sized ID grinding applications such as die plates, spring collets, toolholding fixtures, hydraulic components and thread ring gages composed of hard materials such as tool steel, carbide, ceramics and glass.
