Danobat's CG-PG Grinders Tackle Difficult Applications
IMTS Spark: Danobat’s CG-PG range of grinding machines is said to offer near-100% machine availability while operating at cutting speeds of 80 m/sec. with conventional abrasive.
Danobat’s CG-PG range of grinding machines is said to offer near-100% machine availability while operating at cutting speeds of 80 m/sec. with conventional abrasive. The external grinding machine series is designed for complex applications with high production requirements and geometric/dimensional precision or surface quality. The machines can handle workpieces as large as 1,000 mm in diameter.
The machine range includes Danobat’s Optidress dresser, which increases the useful service life of both the grinding wheel and the diamond and reduces lost time in dressing cycles.
CG-PG grinding machines are suitable for the industrial vehicle, electric motor, energy and automotive industries but can be adapted to any field that calls for high production rates, the company says. The machines are available with automation solutions to adapt to specific needs, including a range of loading/unloading and measurement systems, traditional or CNC steady rests and automatic taper adjustments.
Real-time-responding CNC brings new possibilities to difficult machining applications.
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.
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.
