Glebar Machines Commonly Used in the Aerospace Industry

GT‐610 CNC

Found at the highest end of the GT‐610 series spectrum, the GT‐610 CNC High Precision Automated Infeed/Thrufeed Centerless Grinding System excels at grinding a wide range of materials and is the complete "lights‐out" solution for applications where a high degree of automation, data gathering and gauging feedback is required.

GT-610

The GT-610 Automated Infeed/Thrufeed Centerless Grinding system can be custom fitted with automation. This system is the ideal option for when infeed applications do not require a CNC dresser and for the vast majority of thrufeed applications. The GT-610 excels at hard metals and composites, producing carbide blanks, spools, bushings, and engine components such as valve lifters.  It can also effectively size down metal bars.

GT-610M

The GT-610M is an affordable, compact, precision thrufeed grinding system, built for the machine shop. Applications include spool valves, bar stock, pins, bushings, metals, hard and green ceramics, and other engineered materials.

DD-7

The DD-7 is one of the most compact double disc grinding machines on the market. Designed for grinding small diameter components, it accurately controls their length and perpendicularity. The machine is capable of grinding many high-performance parts for a wide range of industries from medical and aerospace to automotive. The DD-7 can be configured in three fixturing modes, depending on the application, the shape of the part, and the degree of automation required.

P4K

The P4K Gauging System is the fastest and most accurate profile metrology system available for long parts or multiple short parts and is the gold standard quality control device for the measurement of guidewires. As a setup reduction device (for the GT-610 CNC), the P4K scans and provides feedback of the entire component geometry for all parts in a cycle to automatically correct the grinding wheel dress shape (correcting the wheel dress shape from any measurement device is patent-pending).This is done in a matter of seconds, drastically reducing setup time and improving quality control.  For other compatible Glebar machines, (GT-610, GT-610 SD, CAM.2 and GT-9AC) the P4K serves as a closed-loop quality control device that feeds back diameter to the control system for automatic size compensation. From titanium fasteners to medical guidewires, the P4K system has you covered.
