Abrasive-Form, Inc., a Bloomingdale, Illinois multimillion-dollar contract manufacturer specializing in creep-feed grinding, has recently installed two Huffman HS-225S Five-Axis Grinding Systems.
Abrasive-Form (est. 1976) is a well established leader in contract creep-feed grinding, primarily on aero-engine and power generation turbine blades. The investment in Huffman 5-axis grinders is a critical part of Abrasive-Form's growth strategy to expand its capabilities, specifically grinding of radial features on vane, nozzle, and shroud segments. Their customers will benefit from the improved cycle times and reduced lead times that the Huffman Grinding System provides.
The model HS-225S System from Huffman Corporation enjoys a strong worldwide reputation for its reliability and process capability. The machine's axis configuration is particularly suited for grinding radial segments. The system is provided with industry-leading software that is easy to learn and operate. The software has robust features which enable machine operators to easily and quickly create grinding programs and to make in-process adjustments for real-world operating conditions. The bottom line results are higher quality and productivity.
