Superabrasive Machining Systems

Related Topics:

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".

  • 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.
