Max-Tek, LLC offers the HGC 400 with three, four and five-axis capabilities for applications within the aerospace and power generation industries. 


Constructed on a Meehanite cast iron base, the machine uses precision linear ways and Heidenhain scales for the X, Y and Z axes. Travel in the X/Y/Z axis is 584 mm to 600 mm. The available five-axis rotary trunnion features a high-precision roller gear table with zero backlash mounting a 400 mm × 400mm pallet, says the company. The machine is capable of speeds ranging from 35 to 50 hp, and it is equipped with a HSK-100; a 12,000-rpm direct drive spindle with chiller; and a GE Fanuc 16 IM CNC control system, drives and servo motors. Also standard is a 40-position ATC, with a 60-position model available to accommodate CBN and conventional vitrified grinding wheels and milling/drilling tools for additional operations.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
