Blohm’s Planomat HP 412, available from United Grinding, is an efficient grinding machine that offers fast infeed speeds and accelerations. Options include a measuring probe, separate vertical grinding spindle and a fourth axis, enabling the user to individualize the system. The grinding machine can serve as a universal machine for individual and small-batch production or as a cost-effective, customized production machine.

The operator interface enables quick and easy operation and can be individually adapted to the respective task, from simple workshop programming, to die/mold and production applications. This ensures optimal utilization of the machine's capacity and increases productivity in the long term, the company says.

The Planomat HP 412 is available in combination with automated loading concepts with both conventional or collaborative robots. With the unattended loading and unloading concept, customers can reduce their auxiliary times and further increase output. Higher levels of automation also increases process reliability and reduces reject rates and downtimes.

  • 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.

  • Getting The Most From Creep-Feed Grinding

    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.

  • 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.
