Studer, part of the United Grinding Group, has introduced the Favorit CNC universal cylindrical grinding machine with a center distance of 1,600 mm (63") to handle long workpieces. The machine is designed for grinding both single part and series production and can be fitted with automation. With options such as measuring control, a balancing system, contact detection and longitudinal positioning, it can also be adapted to other grinding tasks.

The grinding machine has a machine bed made of solid Granitan to ensure precision, performance and safety. The full enclosure provides a view of the grinding process. The wheelhead, which can be automatically positioned in 3-degree increments, can accommodate a belt-driven external or internal grinding spindle.

The company’s practice-oriented grinding software with “pictogramming” enables less experienced users to program grinding and dressing cycles quickly and efficiently. With the optional StuderGrind software, users can program special applications, such as profiling the grinding wheel, for complex workpiece shapes.

  • For Superfinishing Excellence, Start With The Right Finish

    The key to excellence in superfinishing operations is the incoming grinding finish on the workpieces. With the right start, superfinishing is a very effective and economical process for achieving mirror-like finishes.

  • 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.
