Mining & Energy Industry Grinding Machines

 

Bucking conventional wisdom that hard materials such as diamonds can only be sized on massive expensive machinery, Glebar's GT-610-SD is a fully automated intelligent machine that can take a 19x20mm PCD/Carbide cutting tool and size it to within 0.0002” in diameter with less than 10 micron taper between the PCD and carbide end. Glebar has sold countless GT-610 machines to grind PCD to the world's leading oil and gas companies.

Glebar Machines Commonly Used in the Mining and Energy Industries

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.

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.

GT-610 SD

The GT-610-SD  is a highly automated infeed/thrufeed multiple pass machine with a cleaning station, inline gauging and automatic size compensation, designed for use on hard materials. This machine is ideal when a high degree of data gathering is required along with a desire to limit consumable usage. Applications include PCD drill bits and hard carbide components for drilling industries. It is available with enclosure (as shown).

FW-9D

The FW-9D Ferris Wheel / OD machine forms parts concentric to the inner diameter. Typical applications of the FW-9D are car oxygen sensors, spark plugs, rubber feed rollers, and ceramic insulators.

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.

 
 

PG-9DHD

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.

PG-9BHD

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. 

PG-9X20DHD

The PG-9X20DHD machine was developed to size pre-sintered carbide rods in the pre-fired state. Additional applications include crystal quartz glass boules used to make fiber optics.
