Rigidity Required When Grinding Challenging Materials
Effective centerless grinding of hard materials requires a machine that is capable of damping process vibration at high wheel speeds and providing the rigidity to withstand very high cutting forces.

Cinetic Landis Opens New Facility
Employees, company executives and guests from local academia and government recently convened in Hagerstown, Maryland to officially dedicate the new home of Cinetic Landis Corp. Speaking to an audience of more than 250, President and CEO Daniel Pheil presented the 108,700-square-foot facility as a sustainable, green foundation for the company’s future progress in the design and manufacture of precision grinding equipment. The facility combines 84,700 square feet of manufacturing space and 24,000 square feet of office space.

A Model Camshaft Grinding Process
Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.

Optimizing The Grinding Process
R&D project aims to change grinding from an art to a science.

Centerless Grinding: Not Magic!
Achieving consistent and quality results from the centerless grinding process requires an understanding of the basic fundamentals. Most application problems associated with centerless grinding derive from a misunderstanding of the basics. This article explains why the centerless process works and how to use it most effectively in your shop.

Double-Disc Grinder Helps Manufacturer Of Hand Tools Strengthen Quality Control
A newly designed vertical double-disc grinding machine is allowing a leading manufacturer of multi-purpose hand tools to maintain control of tight dimensional tolerances, and excellent surface finish quality, in finish-grinding tool components.

Double-Disc Grinding On The Move
The double-disc grinding process is consolidating its position in automotive applications but is moving into other industries. Double-disc grinders are now easier to operate, and they have added capabilities for control flexibility, precision process control, faster changeovers, and grinding of nontraditional materials.
