The German company Diskus Werke Schleiftechnik will be unveiling the DDG (Diskus Defined Grinding) face grinding technology. This new capability is said to enable users to precisely define material removal on shouldered and non-shouldered faces.
The technology is being used on the new machine platform D-Fine. As a result, the exhibitors report, the interaction between machinery and technology opens up new possibilities in terms of the perpendicularity of machined faces to reference diameters. In the same way, defined axial step dimensions of shouldered faces can be ground on one or two sides. An adjustment option on the workpiece carrier allows flat surfaces to be ground either concave or crowned. In addition, the micrograph can also be specifically influenced. With a footprint of only 3 square meters, the D-Fine is highly compact and can be concatenated or automated easily and at low cost by means of a belt feeder.
The manufacturers, who are part of the DVS Technology Group, are machine tool specialists for the machining of planar and parallel surfaces and the development of customized face grinding machines. The combined technology will be premiered at the fair.
