Our February issue’s Modern Equipment Review Spotlight includes grinding equipment for a variety of applications. Of course, there are grinding machines like the Kellenberger Varia, whose larger workspace enables a greater number of possible configurations for internal, thread or out-of-round grinding. But our curation also includes other types of equipment such as Vomat’s FA series oil filtration system, which is said to completely separate clean and dirty grinding oil, or Suhner’s BEX spindle, which attaches to a robot arm for automated grinding of mild steel.
