Automatic Side Grinder for Machining Carbide-Tipped Circular Saw Blades
Vollmer's FS 2A grinds the flanks of carbide-tipped circular saw blades with diameters ranging to 810 mm.
The tooth flanks of the saw blades are machined on both sides at the same time by using two grinding wheels. Teeth are completely finish-ground in a single saw blade pass. The feed path can be adjusted using two dial gages.
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.
Because creep-feed grinding is essentially a milling process, why not use a VMC? A grinding machine supplier describes how a VMC platform can make creep-feed grinding more effective.
The double-disc grinding process is consolidating its position in automotive applications but is moving into other industries. Double-disc grinders are now easier to operate, and they have added capabilities for control flexibility, precision process control, faster changeovers, and grinding of nontraditional materials.
