The Powermaster CNC series of universal ID/OD grinders from Supertec Machinery is capable of performing complex and high-precision ID and OD grinding operations in a single chucking or between centers for savings in setup and grind times. Two models are available: The PMG-A is capable of ID, OD, shoulder, taper and face grinding, while the PMG-B model also adds the ability to grind non-round parts for greater flexibility.

The grinder features a turret wheelhead design with two OD grinding wheels, a straight wheel and an angle wheel, as well as an ID wheel. The turret is programmable to enable the operator to move freely from one wheel to the other. The grinder’s reinforced, ribbed, box-type base is made of Meehanite cast iron to ensure high rigidity and stability. High-precision, hand-scraped Turcite-B-coated V and flat guideways combined with a hydrodynamic lubrication system provide accuracy and dependability. Capable of grinding complex workpieces in small- and large-batch production, the grinder is well-suited for applications in the automotive, medical, machine tool, aerospace, and pneumatic and electric motor industries.

    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.

    The double-disc grinding process is consolidating its position in automotive applications but is moving into other industries. Double-disc grinders are now easier to operate, and they have added capabilities for control flexibility, precision process control, faster changeovers, and grinding of nontraditional materials.
