Wheel balancing is crucial to achieving a good surface finish on the workpiece and is critical to the spindle bearing life. A technician balances the wheel using an offline, static system manually moving weights. The process is time-consuming, taking 30 to 45 minutes, delaying setup and production. The results are varied and not repeatable.
Significantly reduce setup time, changeover time, and the variability of results driven by manual wheel balancing.
An automated solution where the spindle is dynamically balanced through controls in the HMI.
The GT-9AC is designed to grind medical guidewires with multiple tapers, paddles, and even parabolic shapes, with the ability to update the linear position of the wire every 0.00025" (0.006 mm) at grinding speeds superior to traditional centerless grinding.
