Tool Grind Workholding System Limits Runout

Precision manufacturing requires minimal tool runout, but the amount of runout that is acceptable can be dependent on part tolerances and is often related to the size of the tool.


Small Grinding Center Offers Big Productivity Boost

This vertical grinding center for small chucked components with a maximum diameter of 100 mm was developed specifically to meet increasingly higher output levels and shorter cycle times.


Big Machining for Big Machinery

A significant investment in machining equipment, including an advanced five-axis, 6-meter profile grinding machine, is enabling this Southwestern shop to be more competitive at producing large-scale gears, shafts and other mining components.


Where Grinding Still Beats Hard Turning

For many critical applications, grinding remains the optimal machining process.


More Effective Cooling, Lubrication for Grinding

Coherent-jet nozzles offer advantage over plastic and rigid tube nozzles for coolant delivery to grinding wheels.


Optical Profile Grinder Has Digital Vision

This reciprocating CNC profile grinder uses a digital profile derived from a CAD file to replace the chart or overlay required for optical profile grinders.


Single-Pass Vs. Multi-Stroke: The Ins and Outs of Honing

Two principal honing processes are available. It’s important to choose the right one for the application requirements.


Tool Feed Technology Enhances Production Honing

Nothing throws a wrench into a production machining operation like variation in the incoming parts.


Combining Hard Turning and Grinding

A combination machine that is capable of both turning and grinding work in a single setup might provide the capabilities a shop needs to address an ever changing work flow.


Wire EDM with a Twist

Wire EDM units that swivel a horizontally guided electrode wire in a CNC-controlled E axis give this shop the workpiece clearance and flexibility to produce complex, high-precision PCD-tipped cutting tools.
