The model FC-250W wheel truing and dressing machine from Rush Machinery is designed for turning and dressing flats, angles and radii on diamond and CBM single-wheel and multiple-wheel packs. The machine is said to increase efficiency and accuracy by profiling, modifying profiles and turning wheels offline from the production grinding machinery.
 
A computer-driven vision system features software specifically designed for the FC-250W and its applications. The system is equipped with an automatic power zoom and a two-axis DRO for measurement. Slides and ways are fully enclosed for minimal wear and extended machine life. The heavy-duty, one-piece, cast iron base provides rigidity and minimizes vibration. Options include an automatic zoom positioning (AZP) computer-controlled two-axis slide for camera positioning, an automated version with PLC and servo control for truing wheel in-feed and pivot axes, a dust-collection system, and quick-change spindle adapters for most CNC and manual grinders.

  • Between Centers And Centerless Grinding In One Setup

    It sounds like a contradiction in terms-between centers and centerless grinding on one machine. But for some categories of workpieces, it's a viable production process that can yield machining time reductions of 45 percent over separate grinding operations.

    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.
