Cylindrical Grinding Machine Tour Launches
United Grinding recently introduced its Studer S11 small-parts production grinding machine to the North American market on the USS Yorktown. You’ll soon be able to see it, too, as it embarks on an eight-city tour, which started Feb. 19.
The cam-actuated system shown in this video is one alternative for automated workpiece installation/removal on the new S11 cylindrical grinding machine. Note the in-process gaging capability being demonstrated, too.
I’m often introduced to new machining equipment at trade shows or company tech centers. Last week, United Grinding unveiled its high-production Studer S11 cylindrical grinding machine for small parts to members of the press and UG distributors at its “Mini Motion” event held on the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier docked in Mount Pleasant, S.C.
In an effort to make it easier for busy manufacturers also to see the machine in action, the company is bringing it to them via a tour that includes stops in eight key areas across the United States as well as Canada and Mexico (tour dates and cities are listed below). UG engineers will be available at each stop to answer questions about the machine and the applications it’s geared toward.
