Glebar Co. has acquired Tridex Technology Ltd., a manufacturer of electrochemical grinding (ECG) technology. 

Glebar chairman Adam Cook says, “Tridex further bolsters our core focus within the non-elective medical minimally invasive procedures market and expands our reach in aerospace and other industries.”

Tridex offers ECG technology as well as tube cutoff machines and other abrasive cutoff machines. ECG combines abrasive grinding with electrochemical machining to provide stress-free, low-force cutting with no burrs and no metallurgical damage such as recasting, heat-affected zone, burning or work hardening, the company says. ECG is widely used for tube cutoff of such parts as stainless-steel hypodermic needle tubing where deburring is not practical. ECG is also used for aerospace applications such as fragile honeycomb materials and turbine airfoils where the material is thin, fragile and heat-sensitive.

  • What Is Single Point OD Grinding?

    Two enabling technologies -- superabrasive wheels and high precision servo control -- come together to provide a contour grinding process that resembles an OD turning operation. For many medium volume OD grinding applications, this method may be a means to consolidate several manufacturing steps into a single setup.

  • 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.

  • Vertical Grinding Has Advantages

    In vertical grinding, the workpiece is held upright in a rotary chuck with the grinding spindle overhead. This configuration can improve roundness, facilitate single-setup processing and prolong the life of the machine. Loading and unloading may gets easier, too. Workpieces with relatively large diameters and short lengths benefit the most from vertical grinding.
