Challenge: The customer is looking for a turnkey, one-operation automated process allowing a single-pass solution for Stainless Steel Bone Pins, for example.
Able to hold extreme tolerances and fitted with a six-axis robot, cleaning, drying, and gauging stations, Glebar’s automated GT-610 CNC Infeed/Thrufeed High Precision Centerless Grinding System answered the call. This solution delivers to the customer a turnkey, one-operation automated process with one of the industry’s smallest footprints. The composite base provides an extremely rigid and stable platform allowing a single-pass solution to achieve the required precision that customers have come to expect from us. The GT-610’s two independent slides (upper and lower), control the regulating wheel and the work rest blade position, holding the part being ground in place, providing a significantly easier and quicker setup than traditional methods. The multi-axis controller can position both grinding wheel slides to a resolution of 0.1 micron (0.000004”).
Built on a rigid composite base and now offered with a 12” work wheel and super-precision twin-grip spindle, the system was designed for the auto-infeed grinding of Stainless-Steel Pins. This shape is a general representation of the many devices Glebar has come across in the orthopedic, aerospace, automotive, and molding industries. (The GT-610 CNC can also process other medical and aerospace components such as Asthma Inhaler Valves, Arthroscopic Shavers, and Aerospace Fasteners to name a few).
