E-tech Machinery offers its series of CNC conversational cylindrical grinders designed for small- to medium-size workpieces in the mold, automotive, aerospace and electronics industries. The AC servomotor and pre-stretched ballscrew provide high positioning accuracy. To increase mass production efficiency, the machines can be equipped with auto-gaging systems or gantry-type loading/unloading systems.

With a static-pressure lubrication system, the rigid worktable travels on a cushion of oil without metal-to-metal contact to prolong machine service life. A combination hydrostatic/hydrodynamic bearing on the wheel spindle promotes rigidity and vibration damping. The movement of the hardened-alloy steel sleeve housed in the tailstock uses an air-float design for light and smooth motion, while oil bath lubrication is designed to ensure high accuracy.

A FANUC CNC conversational program with graphic parameters eases operation. These parameters can be saved and reused for multiple grinding cycles.

  • Jig Grinding On A Machining Center

    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.

  • 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.
