Studer’s “Favorit CNC universal cylindrical grinding machine can be used universally and has a center distance of 1600 mm (63”) that can also handle long workpieces. The grinding machine is designed for grinding both single part and series production and can be fitted with automation. With options such as measuring control, balancing system, contact detection and longitudinal positioning, it can be subsequently adapted to other grinding tasks.

The Favorit has a machine bed made of solid Granitan that is said to ensure maximum precision, performance and safety. The full enclosure provides a view of the grinding process. The wheelhead can accommodate a belt-driven external and internal grinding spindle.

It operates with the practice-oriented Studer grinding software, with Studer-pictogramming, which allows users to program grinding and dressing cycles. With the optionally available StuderGrind software, applications such as profiling the grinding wheel for complex workpiece shapes can be programmed.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
