July 2019 Product Spotlight: Grinding
This month’s Modern Equipment Review Spotlight focuses on grinding and abrasive machines and equipment.
On Display at Eastec 2019
Here is an overview of some of the CNC machining and other technology showcased at the biennial manufacturing trade show.
Two-Axis Grinder Features Ballscrew Drive, Rigid Construction
Eastec 2019: Okamoto’s ACC-818NC is a full-function, two-axis simultaneous CNC form grinder ideal for surface, slot, step, form and contour grinding, now available with a ballscrew table drive enabling precise positioning.
Surface Grinder Improves Machine Tool Components
Moore Tool replaced its dated surface grinder with a new model from Okamoto, which included features and options that have helped the company improve accuracies and surface finishes on components of its jig grinders and diamond-turning equipment.
Surface Grinder Maintains Flatness Across Large Parts
Okamoto’s ACC-3280CHiQ double-column surface grinder is designed for high-precision grinding of large components, particularly demanding mold and die base production applications.
Getting A Grinding Bonus
When this company traded its vintage ID grinders for CNC machines, it got more grinding capacity/capability than it expected.
Combination Machines Changing The Toolroom
There's a relatively quiet but relentless change in metalworking toolroom equipment. Handwheels are still there, so manual operation is preserved, but now there is the capacity to operate these machines automatically via CNC or using a combination of manual and CNC. Timing for this additional flexibility is perfect.
CNC surface grinding is a critical component of this shop's systematic approach in the manufacturing of multicavity molds to extremely high tolerances.
