Metal Grinding Applications

 

Glebar knows Metals.

When a requirement exists to precision grind metal components, such as aerospace fasteners, medical shavers, automotive bolts, valve seats, lifters and more, in a high production environment using a high level of automation, Glebar machines outperform alternative processes. In many cases, advanced programming capabilities allow for multiple parts-per-cycle capability and fully automated lights-out grinding solutions. 

Let Glebar Develop a Metal Grinding Solution for You.

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. In addition to our 10" work wheel design, Glebar is now offering an ABEC 7 twin-grip work wheel spindle design (with 12" work wheel option) on the GT-610 CNC for increased rigidity, faster component processing speed and larger diameter parts.

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.

GT-610 EZ

The GT-610 EZ is the newest addition to the GT Series Centerless Grinder suite. A lean version of the GT-610, the GT-610 EZ brings slide motion control to the operator at an affordable price point. Operating on a much smaller footprint than the competition, this system excels at thrufeed grinding hard materials such as steel, carbide, pcd inserts and technical ceramics. Slide positioning allows for precise diameter control on close-tolerance components. The machine is also capable of gauge feedback for even more precise diameter control.

GT-610M

The GT-610M is an affordable, compact, precision thrufeed grinding system, built for the machine shop. Applications include spool valves, bar stock, pins, bushings, metals, hard and green ceramics, and other engineered materials.

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.

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.

GFS

Glebar's Guidewire Feeding System is configured with its own independent control. It is compatible with Royal Master™, Glebar and other guidewire equipment. Ideal for grinding long components such as Guidewires, Catheter Bodies and Metal Tubing.
