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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Adaptive Machining For Turbine Blade Repair

    Real-time-responding CNC brings new possibilities to difficult machining applications.
