United Grinding offers the Magerle MFP 50 and MFP 51 grinding and machining centers are designed for productivity, flexibility, safety and performance in a compact design. As a five- or six-axis system, the machine performs grinding, milling and drilling in a single part clamping. Spindle speeds ranging to 10,000 rpm enable high-precision machining. The coolant nozzle, controllable via two axes, provides unrestricted freedom of movement and precise positioning of the coolant jet.

 

The MFP 51 has an extended range of functions. The 66-position toolchanger and the automatic diamond roll change enable efficient machining of several different workpieces without altering the tooling, according to the company. The coolant supply can be adapted to the process with the automatic nozzle changer, optimizing grinding results.

 

The company will also feature the Blohm Profimat XT grinding machine, the Studer Favorit CNC 1,600-mm grinding machine, the Walter Helitronic Power 400 grinding machines, among others.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Between Centers And Centerless Grinding In One Setup

    It sounds like a contradiction in terms-between centers and centerless grinding on one machine. But for some categories of workpieces, it's a viable production process that can yield machining time reductions of 45 percent over separate grinding operations.
