New Landis Evolution CNC Grinder Combines High Productivity and Flexibility
High-speed "peel" grinding process provides lathe-like programming and performance
Chicago, IL, September 6, 2006 - Cinetic Landis Grinding Corp. (Waynesboro, PA) has introduced its Evolution high-speed CNC grinder at IMTS-2006 in booth B-7045 at McCormick Place. This exceptionally fast, rigid grinder enables precision plunge and traverse peel grinding of multiple part features in the same cycle. The Landis Evolution was developed to meet the demand for high throughput to reduce piece costs, along with flexibility to accommodate multiple part features and many part families. The machine incorporates a high-speed spindle to permit grinding wheel speeds up to 250m/sec with the part rotating at up to 7,500 rpm.
Outfitted with a narrow, 5 mm wide CBN wheel, the Evolution grinder can contour complex part shapes much like a lathe but with grinding accuracy and surface quality. Grinding at such fast speeds produces smaller chips that help improve surface quality on critical parts like transmission shafts. Various part features including faces and grooves can be accomplished in the same machine, which eliminates additional processes and avoids parasitic time for part handling. And the machine can be programmed to handle a large family of parts with part-to-part changeover in less than one minute.
No part drivers are required with the new Evolution grinder. The machine features a granite base and incorporates a workhead spindle-mounted rotary diamond dresser. A choice of Siemens or Fanuc CNC control is offered.
