Glebar Machines Commonly Used for the Medical Industry

GT‐610 CNC

Found at the highest end of the GT‐610 series spectrum, the GT‐610 CNC High Precision Automated Infeed/Thrufeed Centerless Grinding System excels at grinding a wide range of materials and is the complete "lights‐out" solution for applications where a high degree of automation, data gathering and gauging feedback is required.

GT-610

The GT-610 Automated Infeed/Thrufeed Centerless Grinding system can be custom fitted with automation. This system is the ideal option for when infeed applications do not require a CNC dresser and for the vast majority of thrufeed applications. The GT-610 excels at hard metals and composites, producing carbide blanks, spools, bushings, and engine components such as automotive fasteners and valve lifters.  It can also effectively size down metal bars.

CAM.2

The CAM.2 combines the latest in multi-axis servo motor control, submicron positioning, and an intuitive HMI touchscreen interface to offer unmatched performance in grinding medical guidewires, dental parts, and small complexed precision parts for various industries.  

GT-9AC

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.

DD-7

The DD-7 is one of the most compact double disc grinding machines on the market. Designed for grinding small diameter components, it accurately controls their length and perpendicularity. The machine is capable of grinding many high-performance parts for a wide range of industries from medical and aerospace to automotive. The DD-7 can be configured in three fixturing modes, depending on the application, the shape of the part, and the degree of automation required.

P4K

The P4K Gauging System is the fastest and most accurate profile metrology system available for long parts or multiple short parts and is the gold standard quality control device for the measurement of guidewires. As a setup reduction device (for the GT-610 CNC), the P4K scans and provides feedback of the entire component geometry for all parts in a cycle to automatically correct the grinding wheel dress shape (correcting the wheel dress shape from any measurement device is patent-pending).This is done in a matter of seconds, drastically reducing setup time and improving quality control.  For other compatible Glebar machines, (GT-610, GT-610 SD, CAM.2 and GT-9AC) the P4K serves as a closed-loop quality control device that feeds back diameter to the control system for automatic size compensation. From titanium fasteners to medical guidewires, the P4K system has you covered.

 
 

TF-9DHD

The computer controlled TF-9DHD Infeed/Thrufeed Micro Grinder grinds both hard and soft materials, specializing in parts from 1” in diameter down to .002". The TF-9DHD is utilized to grind catheter, guidewires, pins, bushings, PTFE, plastics, ceramics and other engineered materials.

TF-9BHD

The TF-9BHD Infeed/Thrufeed Micro Grinder grinds both hard and soft materials, specializing in parts from 2.5” in diameter down to .002". The TF-9BHD is utilized to grind catheter, guidewires, pins, bushings, PTFE, plastics, ceramics and other engineered materials.

GSR-6

The GSR-6 was designed to deburr guidewires while automatically separating pass and fail parts. This automated process removes the operator and may prevent against Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
