Optimized PrecisionGrind PG6: accelerated production process

  • 27. March 2019

The proven precision grinding machine PrecisionGrind PG6 has been redesigned. It features a new saddle close to the grind stone that allows the machine to now also process short blanks in the required length. Workpieces no longer have to be cut to length after grinding. As a result, this further optimizes the entire production process.

Process speeds of up to 600 parts per minute possible

The PrecisionGrind PG6 has long been a tried-and-tested solution for finishing needle points quickly and precisely. The new saddle now also makes it possible to process shorter blanks, as the parts can be positioned more accurately as they are fed in. The machine is capable of process speeds of up to 600 parts per minute in a continuous grinding process. To achieve this, a transport wheel separates the blanks from the magazine and precisely positions them axially. The blanks are transferred to the transport unit before being conveyed precisely along the grind stone. By processing the blanks directly in the required length, the machine removes the need to cut the workpieces to length after grinding. This accelerates the whole process and reduces error rates.

Easy to use thanks to clear design

The PG6 has much more to offer than just stable and robust processing, however. It has a clear design and is accessible from all sides. The machine’s simple and precise control elements make it easy to adjust the length and shape of the points as well as the process speed. This makes it possible to accurately set the grind stone itself and the speed of the grind stone and transport. The machine speed is infinitely adjustable and the grinding material can be varied to achieve different surface finishes.
