Glebar has expanded on its guidewire feeder with vacuum feeding technology to develop a similar stand-alone device, which connects and feeds parts into existing grinders. The feeder includes an upgraded control system and a 7" color human-machine interface (HMI) for access to the feeder operations.

The feeder enables multiple modes of operation, including a stand-alone cycling mode that does not require signals from a grinder. The feeding system is designed to feed long products, such as guidewires, catheter bodies and metal tubing to secondary process devices like laser marking or stamping machines, and into any machine or printer. Other features include a sturdy platform with casters for easy placement and trays mounted on the front and back of the unit to provide convenient part staging areas.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
