Tradition of Innovation

Good Things Grind in Small Packages.
Glebar’s Tradition of Innovation Continues with the GT‐610 CNC

In 1952, Miner Gleason and Robert Barhorst founded Glebar Company, manufacturers of centerless grinders, located in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. Their claim to fame in the fifties was the introduction of the first compact centerless plunge grinder. Today, the company still innovates and manufactures high precision centerless grinding solutions with a small footprint – still in the United States – still in New Jersey.

ast forward to 2016. IEN had the opportunity to visit Glebar at IMTS 2016 in Chicago last month, in particular, to learn more about their latest enhancements for centerless grinding, with turnkey automation integration. These latest enhancements address the increasing demand to assist its customers with improvements in daily productivity, while

reducing costs and operating footprint. The primary markets Glebar serves are medical, automotive, aerospace and consumer goods – building machines which grind and gauge high precision parts ranging from light-weight aerospace fasteners to micron thin medical guidewires and arthroscopic shaver components. Glebar doesn’t just sell grinders – they truly are a continuous improvement company that provides process solutions.

“We are able to achieve very precise tolerances and increased throughput in large part due to our continual push to improve setup and changeover processes and develop technologies, which we integrate into our systems. “
