Clamp Bore Grinding Machine Offers Simplified Design

C&B Machinery (C&B) announced the completion of its newly redesigned Clamp Bore Face Grinding Machine, model CBVR-2F-2S.

Clamp bore face grinding machines are specifically designed for generating tighter squareness/perpendicularity tolerances for high-precision face grinding applications, and particularly suited for tighter tolerances required for EV drive gears.

Jeff Allen, Vice President of Operations, said, "The core components of the machine stayed the same. We repositioned the spindle columns to replace the gantry mechanism. This one change allowed for several previous components to be removed, making the machine more open and maintenance-friendly. The main change is that we have incorporated a FANUC robot within the machine for the movement of parts."

The part handling area of the machine is simpler than in previous models. This is an area where many of service calls occurred. The new design fixes the issue before it happens.

After testing multiple design concepts, the new design will be put into production in the near future and multiple machines are being manufactured. This machine design allows users easier access to the spindles, gauges and workholding than previous models. It also provides better coolant flow and minimizes areas for swarf buildup.

C&B Machinery builds new high-precision grinding machines, remanufactures, rebuilds and retools used grinding machines, and provides service and support for grinding machine repairs and maintenance.
