Glebar's versatile precision grinding machines are workhorses which require a smaller footprint than similar machines yet excel in demanding high production environments where the name of the game is high volume at low cost, with exceptional precision. Below are selected case studies demonstrating how our machines excel at grinding plastic:
Manufacturers use lapping machines which are unable to hold consistent tolerances or capacity, creating inconsistent surface finishes and longer cycle times.
Provide a form grinding solution for 1" and 1.4" deodorant balls while meeting the customer's cycle time and surface finish requirements.
Challenge: To size implantable spinal cord stimulation devices that deliver precise doses of electricity to targeted nerve sites for patients suffering from chronic back problems. The device is long and flexible, which made it difficult to handle. It is also constructed of dissimilar materials of varying diameters, from metal conductive rings to fine electrical micro-wires to molded polymer and plastic supports, which made grinding a fine surface finish with stringent diameter control and without damage to the parts very challenging.
Challenge: To size thin walled tubing used for surgical instruments insuring a mirror like 3Ra finish.
