The new grinding machine is characterised by brushless motors (axes X, Z, Y) and torques (axis A) for top-level operating dynamics and high-precision positioning. The longitudinal axis (working table) and the transversal axis (carriage support head) run on rails with rolling friction, while the linear axes obtain maximum accuracy thanks to the pre-loaded and rectified recirculating ball screws. The machine, that automatically grinds mils, taps, reamers, countersink and turning tools, and performs the grinding of both internal and external flat and cylindrical surfaces, boasts fantastic cutting precision and flexibility of use.
Thanks to the dedicated software developed in collaboration with FANUC, the grinding of complex geometric shapes (e.g. cutters or cylindrical, conical or helical mill rake angles) is executed automatically with maximum simplicity. As with the slotting machines, all of the elements (grinders, origins) and the processing sequences are memorized in the NC and can easily be recalled. Even the addition of new operations based on client-specific requests is immediate, thanks to the modularity with which the user interface has been conceived and realised.
