The Kellenberger 100 universal grinding machine’s FANUC 31i CNC features a simple operator guidance system on a 19" touchscreen panel. Available from Hardinge, it is designed to reduce throughput time and optimize production costs.

The machine series includes a compact wheelhead, enhanced performance parameters and a service-friendly machine concept. The compact tandem wheelhead features a motor spindle, reinforced casing for larger internal grinding wheel diameters and 10 wheelhead variations for optimum layout of the machine based on the components to be processed. Higher grinding wheel drive power increases productivity, the Z-axis guideway leads to higher profile precision, and the direct-drive C axis makes the machine more precise for non-circular grinding, according to the company.

The Kellenberger service department was involved in optimizing the machine concept. The machine is said to enable faster maintenance and service operations as well as better accessibility.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
