The TG 350E rotor grinding machine from Precision Technologies Group’s Holroyd Machine Tools and Components division is designed to grind a variety of helical screw components such as worm screws and rotors as large as 350 mm in diameter and 1,795 mm long.

Featuring high accuracy and aggressive stock removal capability, the machines can mill rotors to a roughed or semi-finished state. The rotors then can be finish-ground on the company’s helical grinders. Chucking and workholding options enable quick-change tooling and improve setup time. A 3D measurement and correction probe maximizes accuracy and improves production rates, eliminating the need for off-machine inspection. As a result, parts can be placed in the machine, accurately ground and then measured, and any deviations automatically corrected before completion of the cycle, the company says.

  • Grinding Carbide--A Niche Within A Niche

    If one must pick a manufacturing specialty, grinding carbide might not be the first choice because it’s perceived to be very difficult. RPM Carbide Die, however, has worked the material for nearly 40 years and, as specializing seems increasingly to be the order of the day, this northern Ohio shop is in a good position to thrive.

  • 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.

    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.
