Rush Machinery’s FC-250EX and FC-700EX automatic diamond and CBN wheel truing and dressing machines are designed for truing and dressing flats, angles and radii on single- and multiple-wheel packs. The machines feature PLC-controlled, automatic dressing cycles with servo-driven dressing wheel in-feed; power swing; and oscillation. The machines can be fully enclosed for operator safety and dust control.
 
The machines are designed to increase efficiency and accuracy by profiling, modifying profiles and truing wheels offline of production grinding machinery. The machines are simple to operate, quick, accurate, cost-effective, and feature wheel-diameter capacities ranging to 28" (700 mm), the company says.
 
The one-piece, cast iron base is designed 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.

  • Between Centers And Centerless Grinding In One Setup

    It sounds like a contradiction in terms-between centers and centerless grinding on one machine. But for some categories of workpieces, it's a viable production process that can yield machining time reductions of 45 percent over separate grinding operations.

  • Centerless Grinding: Not Magic!

    Achieving consistent and quality results from the centerless grinding process requires an understanding of the basic fundamentals. Most application problems associated with centerless grinding derive from a misunderstanding of the basics. This article explains why the centerless process works and how to use it most effectively in your shop.

  • 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.
