Vertical Grinder: High-Precision Results for Small Components

At the GrindTec 2018 EMAG announces VG 110, a new vertical grinder, which is perfect for the out-of-round grinding of chucked parts.Using pump casings for auto power steering as an example: The non-circular forms of these components must be processed in high-volume production with a dimensional accuracy in the micrometer range. EMAG develops complete turnkey systems for these and similar tasks, perfectly adjusted to its customers’ respective requirements. The VG 110 on display at GrindTec 2018 is an excellent example of this, as the vertical grinder is a complete solution when it comes to the precision machining of small chucked parts. Along with out-of-round machining of inner and outer contours, the machine can also be used for cylindrical grinding, of course. With its internal grinding spindle and turning tool, the machine is also perfect for combination machining. The EMAG innovative vertical design ensures that chips can fall downward freely avoiding contamination of the clamping area. The vertical design also means that the slide structure is very compact, and therefore can achieve a high degree of rigidity. The machine’s outstanding characteristic is its excellent thermostability. To be able to achieve maximum accuracy when machining small workpieces, the X and Z-axes are mounted separately on the machine base, and machine cooling ensures that the work result is consistent.

The VG 110 is ideally suited for the use of CBN grinding technology, with both dressable ceramic and galvanized CBN grinding wheels an option. Rotating diamond dressing tools and the necessary AE sensors guarantee high-quality, consistent results for dressable grinding systems. The machine is easy to load, thanks to its shuttle and lifting station. The compact machine design with integrated electrical cabinet also means that very little space is required.

In summary: The VG 110 is setting new standards when it comes to the large-scale internal out-of-round machining of small chucked parts. The spotlight will be on the vertical grinding machine's spectacular performance and technical possibilities during EMAG’s appearance at GrindTec 2018.
