BETTER PRODUCTION MMS NOVEMBER 2018 100 GRINDING EQUIPMENT Okamoto, this system permits cutting in-feeds ranging to 0.004 inch. Mr. Marsilius says it has enabled Moore Tool to rough-grind parts more aggressively and has helped produce better sur- face finishes. On-wheel balancing. The new surface grinder also has an SBS automatic wheel-balancing system from Schmidt Industries. After the operators mount the wheel, it goes through a hydraulic balancing cycle on the machine. This system also enables continuous, in-process dynamic balancing during grinding, which improves surface finishes. Electropermanent magnetic chuck. Okamoto rec- ommended an electropermanent magnetic chuck to go with the grinding machine. Because the electropermanent magnet does not produce as much heat as a standard electromagnet, thermal deformation is reduced and the overall accuracy of the system is increased. "It has given us very good results holding f latness to microns and par- allelism to spec," Mr. Dolny says.
