Taiyo Koki, a DMG MORI company, provides vertical grinding machines for aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment and tooling manufacturers, including its super-high production vertical grinding machine featuring a two-place (PGV-2) or three-place (PGV-3) automatic chuck changer.

The company says that these machines boost productivity by increasing spindle run time and reducing part grinding and loading times.

According to the company, the chuck-change time is less than three seconds, with the green part being changed outside of the machine while the grinder is running. It is said that the machine’s ability to grind internal and external diameters and faces simultaneously can as much as double productivity, and typical increases in spindle run time average between 10 and 15 percent.

The machine enables multiple operations to be reduced to just one part chucking, improving the quality of the part because the process generates automatic concentricity between grinding operations.

The part loading/unloading station simplifies manual or automatic part loading, and human or robotic loading methods can have easy access to the machine without opening or closing the machine door.
