The CNC Cylindrical Grinder uses three axes to cut material, the first axis is a lathe that is computer controlled. By using the computer software, the machine can change the size of the holes automatically. A die head is mounted at the end of the lathe. The cut can be made to a specific tolerance, which is dependent upon the capabilities of the machine. This type of machine accepts materials that can be ground into a variety of sizes.
The CNC Cylindrical Grinder has many uses for woodturners and other workers who desire to have a consistent diameter and depth in their turning work. The CNC Cylindrical Grinder has been used in woodturning since the 1700’s and it is still used today. The CNC Cylindrical Grinder can also work with different shapes, however the workpieces must have a steady center axis, like tubes, pins, shanks, and other pieces. If this type of machine is not precisely controlled, the result could be an irregular and inconsistent work piece.
The CNC Cylindrical Grinder consists of four major parts including the motor, the workhead, the chuck, and the plate. This type of machine has the ability to be fully programmable to control the movement of the workpieces in any direction. The motor controls the rotation of the workpiece at a predetermined speed and can range from full rotation to none at all. This is important when using this type of grinder along with the other capabilities.
The workhead is the part of the CNC Cylindrical Grinder that the user actually feels. The forehead is also responsible for grinding the work piece to the desired level of finish at a precise pace. Some types of CNC Cylindrical Grinder include the G300 OD Grinder, which are a higher-speed, high torque CNC Cylindrical Grinder; the Glukote Diamond Grinder, which have an innovative internal laser that grinds the surface at a faster rate; and the Gona Quartz Grinder, which are extremely fast. The G300 OD Grinder has a CNC programming function that allows users to set the grind speed in either fast or slow speeds, depending upon the finish that needs to be achieved. In addition, it also has an adjustable speed control for more accuracy.
With the Glukote CNC Cylindrical Grinder, users are able to program both the speed and type of turning feed along with the level of diamond and variety in the grinding wheel. This particular CNC machine tool can perform a wide range of tasks with ease. Some of the types of jobs that the CNC Cylindrical Grinder can accomplish are polishing, abrasive blasting, burring, honing, beveling, and more. This particular CNC machine tool can quickly and accurately grind any and all materials including steel, copper, aluminum, brass, titanium, and much more. Other types of CNC Cylindrical Grinder include the following: CNC plasma cutting, CNC sanding, CNC engraving, CNC tapping, PCV grinders, and many others.
A CNC Cylindrical Grinder machine tool is very useful when used in the finishing process. It allows for a greater degree of precision in cutting as well as providing the user with a faster rate of production. It is also capable of producing finer and thicker finishes than other grinding technologies. When a piece of work is to be finished, typically a metal file is mounted to a workhead and a CNC Cylindrical Grinder type machine tool is inserted into the workhead and the two move together and then move in a coordinated fashion vertically and horizontally to make the necessary cuts. The CNC Cylindrical Grinder also has a variety of attachments that allow it to be used in all sorts of finishing processes including, abrasive jet finishing, surface hardening and others.
