The Studer Favorit CNC cylindrical grinding machine, available through United Grinding, handles long workpieces and has a center distance of 1,600 mm (63"). The machine is designed for grinding single parts as well as for series production, and it can be fitted with automation. Options include measuring control, a balancing system, contact detection and longitudinal positioning for other grinding tasks.

The machine bed is made of solid Granitan, which enhances precision, performance and safety. The full enclosure is said to provide an optimal view of the grinding process. The wheelhead, which can be automatically positioned every 3 degrees, accommodates a belt-driven external and internal grinding spindle.

The company’s grinding software is said to enable users with little experience to program grinding and dressing cycles quickly and efficiently. Optional StuderGrind software enables efficient programming of special applications such as profiling the grinding wheel for complex workpiece shapes.

    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.

  • 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.

  • A Model Camshaft Grinding Process

    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.
