UNITED GRINDING Offers New Space-saving Grinder Automation



MIAMISBURG, Ohio, – UNITED GRINDING has introduced a new compact wheel changer for use on its WALTER HELITRONIC MINI POWER grinding machines and HELITRONIC DIAMOND EVOLUTION two-in-one eroding and grinding systems. The automated changer provides more set-up and part processing flexibility as well as boosts overall output through continuous uninterrupted machine operation.



Because of its size, the new wheel changer does not increase a machine’s footprint, so shops can add the automation while conserving valuable factory floor space. The wheel changer accommodates up to six grinding wheel sets or electrodes with maximum diameters of 150 mm. It also features a newly developed belt-driven spindle that increases the grinding/eroding length by up to 40 mm over the maximum length of a conventional MINI POWER with its two spindle ends.
