The Glebar GT-610 CNC can infeed grind the shape of the inner tube and maintain a ± 0.0002 in tolerance on the elliptical tip dimensions. It can grind three diameter features to within .0002 in, maintaining a TIR of 0.0001 in and producing a smooth 9 Ra surface finish on 304V stainless steel with a ± 0.001 in wall thickness. It can remove 0.012 in of stock for the majority of a part and 0.004 in off the tip geometry.
The advanced GT-610 CNC centerless grinder from Glebar makes the most precise inner and outer tubes for use by orthopedic surgeons.
