The Jucrank 6000 is an extension of the Erwin Junker Machinery’s Jucrank line. With a clamping length as long as 1,500 mm, a grinding length as long as 1,400 mm and rotating diameters as high as 280 mm, the grinder  is useful for grinding truck and heavy-duty cranks.  According to the company, a primary feature and benefit of the machine is that it can be equipped with two independent CBN wheel heads, permitting the grinding of two main bearings or two pin bearings simultaneously. What potentially results is time savings and enhanced throughput.


Furthermore, crankshafts can be completely ground in one setup, eliminating secondary operations and promoting that tolerances are held. Geared for production, the machine features in-process gaging and automatic compensation while grinding. The CBN wheel and oil coolant combination is said to offer long wheel life, and all functions are under CNC control, including the coolant nozzles.


The company also cites two noteworthy aspects of the equipment: the GE Fanuc control’s “learning” mode, which supervises itself and responds to environmental conditions, and the hydrostatic guideways. The hydrostatic X column, when combined with the hydrostatic feed, is said to offer virtually contact- and wear-free conditions for accurate positioning.


Other construction attributes include vibration-reducing, torsion-resistant gray cast iron machine bases and a three-point clamping system on the grinding spindle, workpiece spindle and tailstock center sleeve..

  • Grinding Carbide--A Niche Within A Niche

    If one must pick a manufacturing specialty, grinding carbide might not be the first choice because it’s perceived to be very difficult. RPM Carbide Die, however, has worked the material for nearly 40 years and, as specializing seems increasingly to be the order of the day, this northern Ohio shop is in a good position to thrive.

  • 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.

  • 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.
