New Developments for Grinding Machine Series

"New linear motors and 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 of six grinding machines more flexible and adaptable."

High-performance linear drives along the X- and Z-axes allow high travel and acceleration values while simultaneously reducing the assembly space, enabling greater dynamics and accuracies. The latest measuring technologies help 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 flexible component arrangement of table assemblies on guide rails in the working area. The table assemblies can be easily retooled for future grinding tasks.

The entire concept of the system 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 fact that all guides and motors are fully covered makes the grinding machine suitable for use with either emulsion or grinding oil as a coolant, the company reported.

The polymer concrete machine base offers enhanced damping performance and high torsional stiffness. The optimized machine bed rinsing makes maintenance easier, and piping for the media feed integrated into the machine stand allows for future grinding machine upgrades. The 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," said the spokesperson. "These environmental improvements, along with increased energy efficiency, reduce maintenance requirements."
