CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machine is a new revolution in machining technology. CNC stands for “Computer Numerated Control” and it is the software that controls and provides exact turning of any bit or blade along the entire CNC lathe. CNC cylindrical grinding machine consists of head stock, work platform, grinding tool rest, and diamond-tipped head frame. The head stock serves as the input surface for the CNC grinding tools and includes a tapered and slanted bed which accommodates the workpiece for the finest results. The work platform is generally made up of high-carbon steel and includes a vertically mounted work clamp for lifting and lowering the work.
The grinding tool rest forms the work surface and a vertical shaft for supporting the grinding head. Workpieces are usually fed through the work platform and are held on either by clamps or by bolts. The head and work surfaces of the CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machine are made from the same material (stainless steel) and are finished with powder-coated aluminum oxide. To ensure optimum performance, both the work surfaces are coated with UV resistant paints.
CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machine is available in different sizes depending upon the workpiece. CNC lathes with maximum capacity can be used for large machining operations. Grinding rates and speeds can be adjusted according to specific requirements. Manual or automatic transmission provides smooth and fast operation. A CNC machine offers various types of automated grinding modes like Continuous Feed Turbo, Sectional Gearing, Cross Flow and Spray CNC. Each of these grinding modes offers unique characteristics.
In the CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machine, a diamond-tipped tool rest shanks with a hexagonal plate is fixed to a ball screw. The workpieces are placed on top of the workhead and the diamond cutting wheels are moved manually or automatically through a range of approximately 0.001 to two thousand rpm, depending upon the type of the cutter. A Servo Motor provides a control signal to move the grinding wheel frame either forwards or backwards.
A CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machine has a single or twin engine. The term “double” refers to the capability to operate at two speeds simultaneously. Each of the CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machines has its own inbuilt programming. The software used includes settings for the level of backlash and for the type of cutting angle and tool rest. The CNC grinding head comes equipped with a programmable logic control (PCLC), which enables the machine to accept data input and to program the cutting operation.
Most of the CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machines available in the market today have programmable LED display that can be customized to show any information required during the operation. CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machines is designed for rough and finished surfaces. They can be used for cutting plastic, metal and wood. CNC Cylindrical Grinding Machines is easy to operate and add an exceptional value to any business.
