Billed as a state-of-the-art solution for grinding spindle housings, axles, tool-holders, bearings, hydraulic components and machine tool components, the machine enables high-precision grinding on workpieces of up to 1,300 mm in length, including the clamping system, with diameters of up to 760 mm. Also highlighted are the very long work table and a B0 axis that allows the grinding of conical surfaces as well as automated cylindrical corrections without the need to mount a specifically sharpened wheel or resort to interpolation. One of the main technical advantages of the new development is that the wheel only moves along one axis, thus avoiding what the manufacturers call the jagged edges effect. The solution also features a prolonged Z-axis and a three-position dressing turret. The ILD machine range as a whole, which has a movable W-axis for clamping large workpieces, was designed for holding a four-spindle turret and an integrated measuring probe supported by control software. This probe enables continuous monitoring of the process without the need to remove and re-clamp the piece and also permits the detection of minimum modifications of the dimensions of the wheel.
Internal grinding for workpieces of great length
EMO Hannover 2017 gives Danobot the opportunity to introduce the ILD-600 internal grinding machine. This is a completely newly developed solution from the German subsidiary Overbeck for the high-precision internal, external and surface grinding of very long parts with complex geometries.
