Granitan® machine base
The CamGrind S has a proven Granitan® machine bed. This material possesses excellent damping characteristics and high thermal stability. This is a big advantage when machining workpieces with high quality requirements.
Thanks to SCHAUDT‘s patented swivel-in spindle, the CamGrind S can be additionally equipped with a second grinding wheel. The spindle is mainly equipped with ceramic CBN wheels. Electroplated or metal-bonded tools can also be used.
The CamGrind S features a high-precision, directly powered workhead with excellent runout characteristics. The rigid design of the directly powered spindle makes the headstock suitable for clamping with MK4 center points as well as for chuck operation.
The hydraulically actuated slide tailstock of the CamGrind S has a stroke of 150 mm. The tailstock can therefore be used for several workpieces without any set-up time. Monitoring of several clamping positions is also possible. The clamping pressure can be continuously adjusted manually.
High-precision in-process measuring heads can be used without problem in the CamGrind S. Measurement occurs during the grinding process and eliminates the need for manual corrections by the machine operator. As a result auxiliary times are shortened significantly, and cycle times are reduced accordingly.
Swivel-in measuring probe
The CamGrind S is optionally equipped with a swivel-in measuring probe. This is mounted on the cross slide, which results in tremendous flexibility without additional set-up. The swivel-in process occurs pneumatically.
WOP-G programming interface
The WOP-G programming system enables quick and easy programming of cylindrical and noncircular workpiece contours. From just a few inputs WOP-G creates harmonic speed profiles, which can be variably adapted. This enables combination machining of concave and convex profiles in a single clamping with the highest precision.
Two grinding stations
For especially high-performance applications such as the grinding of cam units, the CamGrind S can be equipped with two grinding stations. These are supplied with workpieces in staggered cycles by a compact robot. This significantly increases the machine's output.
The CamGrind S can be outfitted with a compact KUKA robot that is protected against oil and water in accordance with IP 67. Particularly advantageous is the fact that the robot can be directly controlled with the Sinumerik 840D sl via the Run MyRobot software interface. Machine and robot can be simply integrated into the machine process via a central control unit with a convenient operator interface.
