Cylindrical Grinding Machine Extends Wheel Life
Jones and Shipman, a subsidiary of Hardinge, offers its Suprema 1000M cylindrical grinding machine, which features a 160-mm center height with a 100-kg weight capacity.
Powerful, Flexible CNC grinder
Jones & Shipman’s next generation UltraGrind CNC cylindrical grinding machine features a modular wheelhead design with multiple wheel spindles to increase power, accuracy and component weight handling.
CNC Grinder Features Modular Wheelhead Design
Built on a one-piece bed design, the next generation UltraGrind CNC cylindrical grinding machine from Jones & Shipman features a modular wheelhead design that not only offers multiple wheel spindles, but also more power, more accuracy and increased component weight handling. The machine is also said to be highly modular in configuration.
CNC Grinder Offers More Power, Flexibility
The rigid, one-piece bed design of the next-generation UltraGrind CNC cylindrical grinding machine from Jones & Shipman provides stability and high stock removal rates while maintaining high precision, the company says. The mechanical, electrical and software features are said to ensure easy operation and change-over in demanding production environments.
Compact CNC Grinding Machine
The Dominator 624 CNC machine is the smallest in a three-model lineup from Jones & Shipman, yet it is said to offer all the functionality of a high-precision grinding cell in one, compact machine. The machine offers multi-axis creep-feed, surface and profile grinding and a GE Fanuc intelligent terminal CNC within a 2,025- × 1,500-mm footprint. The machine’s compact size makes it ideal for use in shops where space is at a premium, but precision, ease-of-use and high productivity rates are still paramount, the company says.
Cylindrical Grinding Machine Offers Easy Programming
The Ultramat CNC grinding machine is designed for high-volume production work in the aerospace and automotive industries, as well as high-precision, sub-contract machining for medical and motorsports applications. The machine features a one-piece bed design and is said to combine rigidity and high precision with a
Grinding Machines Boost Productive Precision
The company presents three new grinders that are said to be designed to boost productivity without sacrificing precision. The three machines include the Suprema 650 cylindrical grinding machine, the Dominator 624 creep feed grinding machine and the TechMaster 634 surface grinding machine. Each machine features the
Surface Grinder Saves Time From Timing Belt Molds
A machine shop recently faced a challenge relating to producing large mold cores for the tooling it uses to manufacture the long-lasting, top-performing timing belts that have made the company a leading supplier of such products to automotive OEMs.
Grinder Helps Medical Developer Transition To Manufacturing
Surgical Innovations (Si) is a pioneer in the development of equipment for endoscopic surgery. The Leeds, England company was established in 1992 by a surgeon and an instrument maker to develop an articulating instrument that could be inserted through a small hole and actuated into a predefined shape to move organs during laparoscopic surgery. Today Si designs, manufactures and supplies a range of products for minimally invasive procedures and autologous blood transfusion.
CNC Grinding Cell Cuts Lead Times For Progressive Die Maker
In a search for ways to to turn grinding work around faster, this company decided to make better use of its CNC surface grinder, which proved successful.
