Glebar's versatile precision grinding machines are workhorses which require a smaller footprint than similar machines yet excel in demanding high production environments where the name of the game is high volume at low cost, with exceptional precision. Below are selected case studies demonstrating how our machines excel at grinding Carbide:
Challenge: The customer wants to decrease cycle time while maintaining tight concentricity specifications for roughing a tungsten carbide pin.
Challenge: Satisfying the high volume finishing requirements for the complex form geometry on a hard carbide pin application. This compliments the PG-9DOD Carbide Pin Roughing Operation.
Challenge: To process carbide and polycrystalline diamond with complete automation, conserving grinding wheels and using little power, all on a machine within a small footprint
Challenge: To end grind printed circuit board carbide drill blanks used by a major tool manufacturer to qualify the blank before fluting. The existing method relied on a batch process where parts were placed, a stack at a time, into a fixture and surface ground. Control over the length was highly dependent upon the setup of each batch in the machine, and length adjustment and perpendicularity were cumbersome to adjust for small diameter parts. Existing machines on the market were extremely large in comparison to the small diameter of the part to be processed, and were very expensive.
