New Developments for Grinding Machine Series

"New linear motors and tried and tested hydrostatic guides in the 6S and 6L grinding machine series open up new potential," said an Erwin Junker spokesperson. "Higher speeds, various detailed improvements and optimized ease of maintenance result in shorter cycle times, maximized quality and cost savings. The expanded modular concept for the table assemblies makes the platform 6 grinding machines flexible and adaptable."

High-performance linear drives along the X and Z axes allow high travel and acceleration values alongside reduced assembly space. Hydrostatic round guides for the X-axes enable maximum dynamics, dampen vibrations and prevent sticking or slipping by producing minimum friction. The latest measuring technology (such as in-process measurements combined with the latest control technology) helps to produce good parts from the very beginning of the grinding process.

Table assemblies, such as workpiece spindles, tailstocks or steady rests, are installed on standardized universal construction boards, which can be positioned for various workpieces either automatically or manually. The modular concept stands out due to a highly ?exible component arrangement of table assemblies on guide rails in the working area and allows adaptation to future grinding tasks.

The entire concept of the grinding machine revolves around easy access to all components in and on the machine plus optimized set-up. Increased accessibility and serviceability help reduce maintenance effort and costs. The complete cover for all guides and motors makes the grinding machine suitable for either oil or emulsion coolant.

The polymer concrete machine stand is designed to enhance damping performance and provide high torsional stiffness. The optimized machine bed makes maintenance easier, and piping for the media feed integrated into the machine stand allows for future machine upgrades. Decreased machine size also reduces overall transportation costs.

Innovations in the field of cooling, pumps and pressure regulation enable the removal of cooling media harmful to the environment and health. These environmental improvements, along with increased energy efficiency, reduce maintenance requirements and round off the developments on the new platform 6.
