Ewag’s six-axis Compact Line machine is a high-precision, compact and flexible solution for the grinding of inserts in tungsten carbide, cermet, ceramic, PCBN and PCD. Peripheral grinding is also included in the machine’s capabilities, the company says.

The machine’s kinematics as well as its C-axis capabilities ensure the application of protective chamfers on the inserts’ main cutting edges. According to the company, machine downtime is minimized by the line’s short travel distances and by the integrated six-axis FANUC robot that offers flexibility for loading complex inserts.

The machine’s dressing unit has grinding wheel concentricity and high process reproducibility, and offers wheel dressing, regeneration and crushing in a single package. Machine traverses in the X, Y and Z axes are 450 mm, 180 mm and 150 mm while axis resolution is 0.0001 mm. The 5.5-kW grinding spindle produces 10, 000 revs/min.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
