Taiyo Koki Grinding Machine Co.’s CVG-6 vertical universal cylindrical grinding machine with pallet changer is able to grind OD, ID and faces all in one part chucking with machine roundness accuracy of less than 0.00004”. Twin opposing wheel spindles come standard, one larger heavy-duty spindle dedicated to OD and face grinding (uses a 14” diameter wheel) and the other spindle is used primarily for ID and face grinding, the company says. 

The grinding machines comes with a six-place ATC that uses the HSK-E100 type quill clamping system. According to the company, standard features include a FANUC F31iB control with GriPS conversational software, twin opposing grinding spindles with three-position turret, high frequency-liquid cooled grinding spindles, gap elimination, coolant system with integrated chiller and magnetic separator, X-axis scale, hydraulic swing up dresser and a T-slot worktable.

An available part clocking station with dummy spindle can be added which allows parts to be rotated and “clocked-in” at the part loading station. Multiple jobs can be ran simultaneously by registering and setting different workpieces outside of the machine which automatically selects programs and tooling for a different workpiece, the company says.

  • A Model Camshaft Grinding Process

    Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.

  • Creep-feed Grinding Is A Milling Process

    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.

  • 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.
