Centerless Grinder Delivers Precise Arthroscopic Shaver Application

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.

Compact High Speed Automated Internal Grinding

Equipped with features that enhance the automation process, the GI-10NII CNC grinding machine is capable of simultaneous dressing and loading, fixed workhead construction, and greater X-axis travel to provide additional space for workpiece loading/unloading.
The extremely flexible GI-10NII from Okuma America is ideal for handling a variety of workpiece shapes in a simple data setting.

LTI Adds Second Heat Treating Furnace

The Red Devil Dual Chamber Furnace is an affordable option for occasional heat treaters looking for durable energy efficient equipment. With both chambers 12 in H x 14 in W x 24 in L, the upper chamber is programmed to heat to 2200 deg F while the lower oven reaches 1200 deg F. Dual Chamber furnaces allow a shop to harden in the upper chamber then temper/draw in the lower oven without waiting for a single chamber unit to cool down.   
The Red Devil Dual Chamber furnace performs capability heat treating to ASTM, AMS, GE and ASME specifications, as well as other solution treatment cycles, aging cycles, post weld heat treat, normalizing, hardening, and tempering requirements. 

Honing Machine Optimizes Gear Finishing

The Präwema SynchroFine 205 HS gear honing machine features a pick-up design to enable automation. The workpieces and dressing tools are loaded and unloaded by the workpiece spindle. The large X-axis travel enables placement of additional stations adjacent to the loading/unloading station inside the machine, such as a two-flank roll-checking device.
Using direct-driven, digitally controlled spindles for the tool and the workpiece, the Präwema SynchroFine 205 HS gear honing machine from GMTA can produce gear finishing quality comparable to grinding for spur and helical gears, as well as shafts.

Internal Cylindrical Grinding of Longer Parts

The S141 grinding spindle turret accommodates up to four grinding spindles
(including a maximum of two external grinding spindles), a universal measuring probe and internal grinding quills in lengths up to 10.433 in (265 mm) for both
internal and external machining of workpieces in the same clamping, minimized noncut times and boosts in part accuracy. With a direct-drive integrated swivel axis and high-resolution measuring system, the turret rotates/positions quickly and precisely
for repeatability of less than one angular second.
Ideal for the internal grinding of longer workpieces for machine tools, drive elements, aerospace and toolmaking jobs, the Studer S141 universal ID cylindrical grinding machine from United Grinding combines cutting edge technologies with optimal ergonomics and ease of use.
