“Swiss Automatic” Grinder…Made in Jersey
This microgrinding machine uses a hydrostatic bearing akin to the guide bushing on a sliding-headstock, Swiss-type lathe to grind really long, really skinny parts.
Meeting Microgrinding Challenges
A technology for microgrinding reminiscent of Swiss-type machines' sliding headstocks can handle higher length-to-diameter ratios in the grinding of medical guidewires and other long, skinny parts.
Getting to Know Glebar
This grinding machine manufacturer recently consolidated its three U.S. operations into a new facility in New Jersey and added a range of new production machining equipment.
Sliding Headstock Applied To Micro-Grinding
In the world of machining very small parts, what you get isn't necessarily what you can see. Many of the parts being manufactured for medical, electronics and aerospace are too small to be accurately discerned by the human eye.
