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.

  • 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.

  • What Is Single Point OD Grinding?

    Two enabling technologies -- superabrasive wheels and high precision servo control -- come together to provide a contour grinding process that resembles an OD turning operation. For many medium volume OD grinding applications, this method may be a means to consolidate several manufacturing steps into a single setup.

    No other process can do what creep-feed grinding can do. Recent tests show even more can be gained by optimizing every element of a creep-feed system.
