The larger area of our 8-5/8" (219mm) wide wheel removes more material, faster and with better surface finishes than competing machines. Bearing support on both sides of the wheel and a rugged work rest blade holder eliminates deflection and provide the proper support and alignment for heavy grinding and close tolerance work. Designed with longevity in mind, our machines are still working at customer sites around the world, decades after they were made.
For a more advanced version of this machine with linear encoder, motorized slides, and touchscreen control, explore the TF-9DHD. For a plunge grinder version of this machine, explore the PG-9BHD.
TF-9BHD is placed on a stable cast iron bed. Like other Glebar machines in this class, the TF-9BHD boasts a high output while maintaining a small footprint.
Upper and lower slides are hard-chromed for long life, and feature turcite gibs for very smooth operation. The upper slide features a large, easy to read dial indicator (inch or metric) for simple size adjustment. Lift the convenient infeed handle and the rapid infeed screw quickly retracts the upper slide, eliminating the possibility of flat spots on infeed parts. The independent lower slide moves the work rest and entire upper slide assembly, allowing for quick repositioning following a work wheel dress.
The TF-9BHD spreads the grind out over 8+ inches (200+ mm) providing superior surface finish when grinding catheters. Even on mixed durometer plastic tubing, this can be achieved in one pass. By using a multi-grit wheel, the machine can both rough and finish the same part in one operation. An optional pressure washing system eliminates the potential for scratching on soft materials like catheters, by removing loose grains from wheel. It can also be use to clean the wheel between dressing. Combine this with our automatic loading/unloading system for a complete turnkey solution
Designed to part specifications and integrated with machine controls. Custom feeding is available built to part specification.
Built specific to the part, Glebar offers a variety of conveyors which move parts through the process seamlessly and quickly.
Uses a formed template to dress shallow shapes into the grinding wheel. An auto dress version of this dresser available.
Uses a formed template to dress shallow shapes into the regulating wheel.
Collects and removes debri and dust from the work area.
Comes with arbor, flange with four weights and stand. Balanced grinding wheels are critical for high precision parts.
Post grinding, system is integrated into the cell to pressure clean parts.
For rapid changeover from one set of part holding grippers to a different set (i.e. 8 station to 5 station). The entire gripper assembly is easily disconnected, lifted out of the keyed mount, and then dropped into the next mount and reconnected.
Supports and facilitates the material rotation at the entry and exit sides of the grinding machine. Typically used in a thrufeed operation.
Available in manual and hydraulic version.
30 gallon capacity with two removable settling tanks centrifugal pump & filtration package
