Ohio Tool Works Introduces New OTW-1000 Series Horizontal Honing Machine
Ohio Tool Works introduces the model OTW-1000 series horizontal honing
machine to its line of production horizontal and vertical platforms. The medium duty OTW-1000 is available in a variety of standard stroke configurations from 2M (6.6') thru 6M (20') with spindle drive offerings to 10HP (7.46Kw). Infinitely variable spindle speed packages to 1000 RPM provide for efficient processing using both conventional vitrified and metalbond superabrasives. Designed for flexibility, the model 1000 will process parts using the OTW line of heavy-duty tooling as well as lighter design tool systems of other manufacturers.
For customers with products calling for precise and consistent size control, the optional Medium Size Control System offers accurate and dependable size control to 0.0005" or better when metalbond abrasives are applied. This system can be integrated to our user friendly, touch screen control allowing the operator the option of running multiple machines or other secondary tasks.
The heavy, welded steel construction of the model 1000 provides the rigidity required for precise bore sizing at a price point competitive with manufacturers of lighter equipment. The servo drive reciprocation system and variable speed spindle drives offer smooth, quiet and trouble free operation under the most severe conditions.
The model OTW-1000, along with the larger model OTW-5000 will be featured at the 2009 Houstex Advanced Productivity Exposition, February 24-26 in Houston, TX. Please visit our booth #521 for an active demonstration of the model 1000 and our full line of honing related products.
