In our Creep Feed Grinder we have separated all movements in X, Y and Z direction. Our objective is to attain a precision of 90°± 0° in all 3 axes and to preserve this precision through the life of the machine. This provides superior stability even at extreme ends of working range.
In our CF Series focus is on individual production solutions. X, Y and Z axes are powered by servomotors and drives through precision ball screws. Feed rates start from a few millimeters to a very wide range on the upper end.
Our special Spindle design for these applications is of superior rigid construction to handle heavy full cut grinding load. The spindle runs in super precision angular contact preloaded bearings with optimum concentricity and balance characteristics. The spindle head travels in the vertical column in hand-scrapped guide-ways with power elevation and manual or automatic in-feed in reciprocating or plunge cycle.
The Coolant system is of very robust design to ensure adequate dissipation of heat.
A special Dressing system is designed to suit the individual application. (Fully automatic cycle to include rapid approach creep feed grinding, auto dressing, compensation and return to home position.)
