Junker’s all-round machine series features a high-precision B axis with automatic stepless positioning for versatility, while three high-performance spindles enable ID and OD grinding operations. The Lean Selection model provides a grinding length of 800 mm and a center height of 150 mm. It is designed for complete grinding of workpieces such as those used in prototype production, mold and tool making, pneumatic and hydraulic applications, precision mechanics, gear manufacturing and medical technology.

The universal cylindrical grinding machine can be equipped with corundum, CBN or diamond grinding wheels. It is suitable for small batch runs through large-scale series, and can be integrated with automation for use in production lines. The grinding machine is capable of machining different workpiece geometries, including cylindrical diameters, tapers and radii, shoulders using angular infeed grinding, OD and ID threads, and punches.

  • 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.

  • Wire EDM with a Twist

    Wire EDM units that swivel a horizontally guided electrode wire in a CNC-controlled E axis give this shop the workpiece clearance and flexibility to produce complex, high-precision PCD-tipped cutting tools.

  • 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.
