The grinding angle is set automatically on our machine, which means that high repeatability is guaranteed. In doing so, the device relies on an optical encoder with an accuracy of ±1.5″ to ±3″-> with a repeatability of 0.001°. The device is controlled via an HMI (human machine interface) display and the processing is done by a PLC (programmable logic controller). Adjustments can be made to the stroke length during grinding, to the various feed speeds and rotational speeds and, if necessary, to the micro-adjustments of the grinding angle.

The operator is able to use the device independently after a relatively short training period.

The repair of the taper geometry of a CNC machine can be carried out in a very short time, which means huge savings for the machine owner.
