Sharp Industries will display its OD-1524X outer-diameter cylindrical grinder for toolroom or production grinding applications. The CNC grinder has an OD grinding range from 8" to 24" and a distance between centers ranging from 20" to 80". Models with traveling wheelheads can grind lengths ranging to 160". The workhead can swivel 90 degrees counterclockwise and 30 degrees clockwise for various grinding operations. The wheelhead travels on the saddle with hand-scraped and Turcite-coated V ways and flat ways. A 0.00002" linear feedback system is said to deliver high positioning accuracy and repeatability. The table travels on a cushion of oil with no metal-to-metal contact. An optional ID attachment is available for internal grinding operations.

A FANUC Oi-TC CNC and drive system delivers precise movement of the wheelhead and the table. Other optional accessories include crash control, gap control, a touch probe and an auto-sizing device.

  • 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.

  • 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.
