Toyoda’s GL4i-Switch universal grinding machine features an adjustable wheelhead for straight and angular applications and the capability to complete OD and angle-head work. These features enhance repeatability and reduce cycle times by enabling the machine to run multiple operations in a single setup, requiring fewer offsets or adjustments to the part. The machine’s workhead swivels in increments of 0, 30 and 45 degrees for flexible grinding, including smaller-diameter journals.

Designed for high-production manufacturing, the machine features the company’s stat bearing and floating plate technology for accuracy and positioning. A reinforced cast iron bed improves coolant flow and reduces thermal displacement.

The machine uses the company’s Toyopuc-Touch conversational control, which gives the operator intuitive data entry capabilities with visualization of equipment status for smart manufacturing.

For large-part grinding applications, the machine comes with a distance between centers ranging from 500 mm (19.7") to 2,000 mm (78.7"), a swing ranging to 400 mm (15.7") and increased part capacity ranging to 300 kg (661 lbs).
