Surface Grinding Machine
A specialty machine shop is improving the efficiency of its surface grinding process. The existing machine is sound mechanically, but manually operated. Automating the machine will free the operator for other tasks, which will increase overall throughput of the machine shop.
Motion control Requirements:
A four-axis motion controller is required for this application. The operator utilizes the controller's jog function to position the grinding head at the proper "spark off" height. From this point, the controller takes over and finishes the part while the operator works on other critical tasks. Increasing the parts repeatibilty and throughput of the process justified the cost of automating the machine.
