The AGC 100 automatic grinding center is a two-axis (X and Z) grinding center that uses plated and vitrified CBN wheels to provide cost-effective, superabrasive, high-production applications.

The AGC 100 construction uses a high-tensile Meehanite, one-piece base and bed to provide required rigidity and vibration dampening for efficient superabrasive grinding and work spindle performance.

Other features include an easily accessible part-loading area; a precision 6,000-rpm spindle powered by a Fanuc direct-drive spindle motor with position orientation capability; a water-cooled direct-drive superabrasive machining spindle mounted stationary to the machine bed, ensuring minimized heat influenced and vibration-free performance; hydraulic or pneumatic part clamping; a central lubricatrion system for automatic lubrication to all slideways; and ballscrews.

Maximum swing is 4.0", X-axis travel is 9.6" and Z-axis travel is 9.4".

  • 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.

  • Adaptive Machining For Turbine Blade Repair

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

  • 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.
