The 5 hp vertical spindle motor has power necessary to rapidly process large diameter dies and features through spindle and external coolant flow to keep parts cool. The specially compounded CBN superabrasive grinding wheel is free cutting even on the toughest of materials without special dressing.

The PDG Punch and Die Grinder is easy to use: the operator installs the tool in the rotary fixture, positions the grinding wheel in proximity to the tool using the "Tool Finder" indicator, sets the desired stock removal and starts the autofeed grinding cycle. The PDG autofeed features allows the operator to perform other work duties. The compact footprint of 42" x 48" and semi-automatic operation make this punch and die grinder an ideal addition to any turret press manufacturing cell, allowing a press operator to both utilize and maintain tooling.
