Automated Production on HMCs Requires Automated Gaging

An innovative approach to automated gaging helps deal with a fundamental challenge inherent to a flexible, multi-machine environment: Many machines with many operations multiply the chances for error.

Multi-Wheel Grinding of Big Gears

New profile grinding technology is said to significantly improve productivity for big gears by grinding four tooth flanks simultaneously.

A Streamlined Alternative for Automated Tool Manufacturing

This automated, single-machine system enables tool manufacturers to completely grind mixed batches of varying tool types and sizes unattended.

Diamond Lapping and Lapping Plate Control

The word “diamond” brings the word “expensive” to mind. But when it comes to lapping with diamond superabrasives, start thinking “low”—as in lower slurry consumption, lower slurry cost per hour, lower sludge generation, lower cycle time, lower rejec...

Honing experts describe the significance of this machining process for meeting the most recent emissions standards affecting cars, trucks and other vehicles.

Advanced Grinding, Plain and Simple

Advanced grinding equipment gives this shop the flexibility and automation it needs to serve customers with either rapid-response or high-volume jobs.

Single Pass Honing System with Automatic Tool Wear Compensation

Single pass honing, also referred to as diamond bore sizing, is a good way to produce parts economically when the bore is small or has thin-walled members that need to be honed.

Honing in on Low Cost, High Accuracy and Short Cycle Times in the Manufacture of Orifice Meter Tubes

A low-cost automated honing system uses existing tools and protects workers.

Automating Grinding Setups For Root Form Tools

An automated Form Tool Compensation system offers a streamlined way to set up root form cutter jobs on grinding machines while ensuring ground profile accuracy to as little as 2 microns.

Attaining Ten-Millionths Bore Accuracy

Conventional honing has been continuously improved and automated, now allowing boring accuracies to be measured in millionths.
