Grinding is a manufacturing process that is often left up to a designated, experienced grinding expert in a workshop.
Why can’t any other machine operator perform this work? Certain basic rules have to be observed during grinding, just like milling. The grinder has to know which material can be machined with which tool. And just like milling, the grinder also has to know which feed rates, infeeds and speeds are allowed on his machine for the material being processed...
Toothed racks are important elements in drive technology to convert a rotary movement into a linear movement.
The dimensions of these elements can vary greatly, as can the accuracy requirements. Whereas milling dominates for rough accuracies, grinding is predominant when it comes to higher accuracies...
The company Peikert in Bad Salzuflen has done precisely that for years, with impressive independence and composure. Professional custom solutions are drawn up individually and manufactured quickly and with high precision using state of the art machines.
In regards of innovation, 2012 has been a particularly fruitful year for SCHNEEBERGER.
For example, the well tried and tested 5-axis GEMINI dmr with the new grinding wheel changer (AWL). Of course, this rigid and fast changer, which is available with 8, 16 or even 40 grinding wheel packs, not only changes the grinding wheel packs but at
the same time also the complete coolant manifolds.
In the field of cutters, the ball nose end mill still occupies a
special position. Special cutting edges have constantly been met with interest over the last few years.
With a new approach in the definition of these tools, as well as the cutting technology,
the new Quinto 5 Software from J. Schneeberger Maschinen AG meets those challenges.
They have finally arrived! SCHNEEBERGER now also offers its customers filter systems manufactured in house which have been specially designed for the needs of tool grinding. These filter systems are notably distinguished by the high cleaning efficiency, rigid design and ease of operation. They are suitable both for carbide and HSS.
