PG-9CRG

OD Grinder

The Glebar Advantage

Traditional OD grinding methods rely on CNC programming to profile shapes. Although adequate for prototyping, an OD machine is slow since the grinding head has to traverse the length of the part.  Alternatively, the PG-9CRG is able to form components in one pass

Additionally, the PG-9CRG leverages Glebar’s vast knowledge in grinding wheel compositions to match the optimum grinding wheel for your material. As a compact machine that can be highly automated, the machine can be simply adapted to grind small components using the installed collets

Introducing the PG-9CRG

  • The PG-9CRG is a compact machine that can perform the functions of a much larger OD machine. For profiles up to 12” wide, this machine is capable of grinding a shape in components concentric to a center shaft much faster than competing systems since the plunge operation shapes the component in one motion rather than having an OD grinder “chase” the shape over the length of the part.
  • Precision collets insure optimum concentricity control. Coupled with variable speed collet rotation and slide velocity, the grinding process can be optimized for efficient material removal at fast, controlled speeds.
  • Originally designed to process rubber rollers for printer toner cartridges, this machine excels at holding a very tight concentricity spec. The fully programmable slide can be positioned to an accuracy of 0.1 microns. The machine is simple to operate using Glebar’s intuitive user interface. The PG-9CRG can interface to robots and seamlessly attaches to non-contact inspection systems for complete, hands-off operation. 
  • The wide grinding wheel can be dressed using a template tracing dresser mounted on the machine. Variable speed oscillation of the workhead can dramatically  improve surface finish of the ground component.
  • Check out the PG-9DOD for a more compact version of this machine.

PG-9CRG Highlights

Pick and Place SCARA Robot

Pick and Place SCARA Robot

An available robot incorporates two grippers for loading and unloading during the grind cycle, reducing cycle time.

Automatic Work Wheel Dressing System

Automatic Work Wheel Dressing System

An available dressing system automatically advances diamond and dresses the work wheel while tracing a formed template. The dresser can be activated at predetermined intervals and it adjusts the machine accordingly.

HMI Controls

HMI Controls

The control software is entirely developed at Glebar and is fully customizable to address your application and process. The intuitive touch screen interface allows for ease of use and flexibility. The machine software interface was developed to allow an unskilled operator to run many high precision machines simultaneously.

Accessories

In-Line Gauge

In-Line Gauge

Diameter contact gauge mounted on exit side of the machine measures the ground part. Diameters at several points can be measured, used for size compensation, and compared against high and low user-defined limits. Contact measurement is unaffected by coolant.

Mist Collector

Mist Collector

Collects and removes debri and dust from the work area.

Off-machine Wheel Balancing System

Off-machine Wheel Balancing System

Comes with arbor, flange with four weights and stand. Balanced grinding wheels are critical for high precision parts.

Post Process Gauging

Post Process Gauging

Post grinding and cleaning, the data is collected, analyzed and fed back to the machine for automatic size compensation. Measurements are shown on a trend graph on the machine control.

Part Counter

Part Counter

Built specific for the part; integrated into the cell.

Pressure Washing System

Pressure Washing System

Post grinding, system is integrated into the cell to pressure clean parts.

Robot Pick & Place

Robot Pick & Place

Automatically picks parts from trays, loads into machine, unloads and places back to parts tray. Fully guarded and interlocked access doors. Robot arm incorporates two grippers for staging the loading and unloading during the grind cycle, reducing idle time.
