New Landis Infinity(TM) Swiveling Wheelhead CNC Grinder Introduced at IMTS 2006

Infinitely variable turret features exclusive hydrostatic bearing design

Chicago, IL, September 6, 2006 - Cinetic Landis Grinding Corp. has introduced its new Infinity(TM) flexible CNC cylindrical grinder with infinitely variable swiveling wheelhead at IMTS 2006 in booth B-7045.

The new Landis Infinity grinder is suitable for single machine/single setup grinding of complete camshafts and small crankshafts, as well as general grinding of concentric diameters, eccentrics, profiles, tapers and chamfers. The new Infinity grinder can help manufacturers achieve the accuracy required for many of today's precision components while overcoming the tooling limitations encountered in hard turning.

The Landis Infinity CNC grinder features a turret with two spindle pod mounting positions. The pods, which can be optimized for the use of different size grinding wheels, may be optionally fitted with left- or right-hand wheels adapted to specific applications. The grinder's turret has infinitely variable positioning with a 230 degree working range. The incorporation of fully hydrostatic bearings in the turret enables a low profile, rigid swiveling wheelhead design that is inherently stiff, accurate and reliable due to the elimination of mechanical couplings.

Other features of the new Landis Infinity grinder include hydrostatic wheelhead bearings and linear motor positioning of both the X- and Z-axes. A swing-down rotary dresser is provided for increased machine capacity. The Infinity can accommodate a 1200 mm maximum work part length with a 150 mm maximum work part swing.
