Fives introduces the Landis-Bryant UL2, a high-speed production ID grinder designed for machining workpieces with external diameters ranging to 177 mm. The machine’s torque tube bed design, combined with a “flow-thru” system that circulates oil and coolant through the base, provides rigidity and thermal stability.

Independent slides in the X and Z axes, each mounted directly to the machine bed, provide a low center of gravity. The machine’s round-bar hydrostatic slideways in each axis are said to provide a stiff system with minimum friction. The machine uses high-resolution servomotors that are directly coupled to super-precision ballscrews providing precise and reliable positioning throughout the entire production cycle.

The UL2 allows for various machine configurations involving diaphragms, collet chucks, shoe centerless magnetic chuck setups and disc drive roll centerless arrangements. This machine is offered with automatic workpiece loading solutions for many applications as well as in- and post-process gaging. Other features include an acoustic emission monitoring system (AEMS), automatic taper adjustment and a FANUC i CNC, as well as various dressing options.

Fives’ ID grinding systems are equipped with Landis-Bryant spindles that contain super-precision bearings enabling operation at high speeds. They are powered by induction motors that are said to promote efficient machining.

  • Wire EDM with a Twist

    Wire EDM units that swivel a horizontally guided electrode wire in a CNC-controlled E axis give this shop the workpiece clearance and flexibility to produce complex, high-precision PCD-tipped cutting tools.

    Advanced grinding equipment gives this shop the flexibility and automation it needs to serve customers with either rapid-response or high-volume jobs.

  • 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.
