Glebar has made several enhancements to its GT-610 infeed/thrufeed centerless grinders and DD-7 double-disc machines. Applications include aerospace fasteners, automotive transmission components, engine parts and valve stems, spools, arthroscopic shavers, bone drill blanks, medical parts and more. Improvements to both machines focus on connectivity, safety and rigidity, and optimized wheel dressing.

The machines are now equipped with brushless servo motors instead of stepper motors for quickly and precisely moving slides. A servo-driven, close-looped drive offers the operator a high degree of control over the parts being ground, the company says. This upgrade will eliminate hydraulics by motorizing all the axes, including dressers.
