Process control systems for grinding machines

Process control systems for grinding machines

The mechanical components subjected to coupling require tight geometrical tolerances, in addition to an excellent surface quality. The achievement of these features allows the increase of lifetime of the components and ensures an excellent operation with higher power transmission and lower energy consumption, thanks to the frictions reduction.

They are normally produced by means of a grinding machine, which ensures consistent quality and high productivity.

To help you meet quality and productivity requirements, we offer a wide range of solutions which can be easily implemented both on new and existing machines in the field. Our offer includes balancing systems, in-process gauging and touch detections units.

Balance Systems products act in the various phases of working process in the grinding machine with the only aim of optimize :

1) Processing quality

2) Reduction of cycle time

3) Stabilization of process

4) Extension of components life

5) Safety

The automatic balancing, touch detection and in-process gauging functions, applied in the appropriate times of working cycle by grinding machine, realize the objectives upon described combining a sophisticated control electronics, in which specified algorithms were realized for the different working cycles, with a wide range of sensors and mechatronic actuators.

Our Solutions

Balancing

The balancing of the spindle and grinding wheel is an essential operation in order to achieve the machining’s surface quality and to ensure a long life of the rotary components.

Gauging

The use of our in-process measuring systems allows to produce permanently components in conformity with the most severe environmental conditions (warm-up, thermal shifts, chemical coolant, local or induced vibrations, etc.) and to operate in high-speed cycles.

Touch detection

The control of the grinding wheel balancing and its dresser allows to obtain a near perfect profile also optimizing the removal of the grinding wheel surface, which is evident by the increase in the tool life and reducing environmental impact.
