The FC-250EX and FC-700EX automatic diamond and CBN wheel truing and dressing machines from Rush Machinery are designed to true and dress flats, angles and radii on single wheels and multiple wheel packs. They feature PLC-controlled, automatic dressing cycles with servo-driven dressing wheels in feed, power swing and oscillation. The machines can be fully enclosed for operator safety and dust control.

The machines are said to increase efficiency and accuracy by profiling, modifying profiles and truing wheels offline of the production grinding machinery. They are simple to operate, quick, accurate and cost effective, the company says. Wheel diameter capacities range to 28" (700 mm).


The one-piece, cast iron base is said to provide extra rigidity and minimize vibration. Standard features include ExVision, a computer-driven vision system with a software program specifically designed for the machines and their various applications; an automatic power zoom; and a two-axis DRO for measurement.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
