The FW-9D offers a unique version of plunge grinding where the outside shape of the product is ground relative to the center of the part. By using a motorized plate with arbors installed on its circumference as a holding fixture, parts can be loaded onto the precision arbors manually, or by using robots. The plate then rotates in a controlled manner into a shaped grinding wheel while the part is supported and rotated by a regulating wheel. This unique technique solves the concentricity problem faced by conventional centerless grinding machines. It also allows the machine to have parts staged during a grind cycle.
This Ferris wheel machine was designed to process rubber capstans, and has since evolved into grinding additional parts such as precision bushings and ceramic components such as spark plugs. The advantage this machine has over other processes is the ability to shape components up to 8” wide.
The FW-9D uses a twin grip, high precision spindle. This setup improves the robustness of the machine insuring part repeatability over time. Additional fixturing is available to support the part during grinding.
Shaping or dressing the grinding wheel can be done on the machine itself or offline using Glebar’s wheel dressing machines.
