Automatic Side Grinder for Machining Carbide-Tipped Circular Saw Blades
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.
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.
Real-time-responding CNC brings new possibilities to difficult machining applications.
Because of the high material removal rate creep-feed grinding can deliver in challenging materials, grinding might not be just the last step in the process—it might be the process.
