Okuma’s GPW/GAW grinder series is now equipped with the company’s intelligent OSP-P300G CNC control. The OSP-P system fully integrates the machine, motors, drives and encoders, promoting enhanced machine performance and customization to suit particular machining needs. The Easy Operation control and touchscreen increase efficiency by enabling users to quickly toggle between machine operations, programming and wheel preparation screens.

Besides the CNC, key features of this grinder series include a dead-center, a C-type workhead, a chucking headstock, and a tailstock quill stroke of 35 mm. The high-speed, heavy-duty grinder is driven by a 10-hp (5.5-kW) wheel spindle motor. High feed rates range to 30 m/min. in the X axis and 20 m/min. in the Z axis. The series is also equipped with a Chatter Control function that automatically adjusts wheel speed for accurate, stable machining. The high-speed grinding wheel spindle is ideal for cutting mass-produced small parts with precision.

The grinder’s wheelhead traverse structure gives the machine a solid, compact footprint that saves floor space, while the user-friendly design eases loading of a variety of workpieces, which allows for automation setups in high-production environments.

    Roughing and finishing on a single machine, using a single setup, has appeal for most shops. The advantages in time savings and accuracy are obvious. Eliminating the transport of workpieces between machines, as well as the setup for those secondary operations, is a boon for throughput. Critical features that need to maintain dimensional relationships can be much more reliably produced if machined complete in one clamping.
