Glebar's Centerless Form Grinding Machines are designed to grind parts as small as 0.050" to 4" diameter on the same machine. Spherical and cylindrical components can be shaped into unlimited forms on a large variety of materials such as rubber, carbon fiber, Teflon® (PTFE), and various metals. A multitude of applications can be ground including insulators for electronic components, fuse bodies, crystal quartz glass boules for fiber optics, check valves for pumps and valves, golf balls, and other consumer product components. Glebar has over 65 years of form grinding experience, having introduced the first compact form grinder to the market in 1952. Our history is deeply rooted in this type of grinding.
The PG-912DG Enclosed Centerless Form Grinder is designed to increase throughput, reduce setup times, and achieve tighter tolerances. Additionally, it provides better integration to gauges, automation, and remote service diagnostics. It can produce multiple cylindrical or spherical parts from a single piece of material.
The PG-9DHD Centerless Form Grinder produces multiple parts from a single piece of material, in addition to grinding pre-formed parts to finished shape with extreme precision. Examples of applications are carbon fiber components, fuse bodies, golf balls, drumsticks, felt pen nibs, check valves for pumps and valves, and insulators for electronic components.
The PG-9BHD is a hydraulically-driven centerless Form grinding machine designed to form multiple components from rod or preformed parts. Examples of parts ground on this machine include carbon fiber and Teflon® (PTFE) components, golf balls, check valves, drumsticks, deodorant balls, pen nibs, ceramic balls, rubber balls, billiard balls, and more.
