Kent International’s KGC universal cylindrical grinding series features an X axis with preloaded precision roller linear guides, a C3-grade ballscrew, and FANUC servomotors. The cross ballscrew enables smooth transmission and stable, accurate performance. The design of the Z-axis ladder-type V-flat slideway promotes high rigidity and stability in the grinding process.

The machine’s wheelhead features a spindle with six preloaded, angular contact ball bearings and a runout of 0.001 mm. A spindle inverter accommodates wheel diameter changes with constant circumferential wheel speed. For easy loading and unloading, a hydraulic system moves the tailstock quill; the operator can also move the tailstock by hand.

The table manually swivels for taper grinding, and a dial gage is installed for easy reading. The dresser can be mounted at the rear side of the tailstock, workhead or on the table for different applications. The workhead is servomotor-driven with a labyrinth waterproof design. It includes high precision angular contact ball bearings for axial and radial loading.

The machine features a FANUC control with conversational pages for general grinding applications that are said to be easy to learn and to use.
