MODERN EQUIPMENT REVIEW MMS JANUARY 2018 144 TURRETS PARTS SERVICE 704.392.0110 2747-A Interstate St. Charlotte, NC 28208 Grinder Reduces Setup Time for Helical Screw Workpieces Holroyd Precision's TG 350 rotor grinding machine is designed to provide accuracy, speed and repeatability through greater levels of automation and reduced setup time. TG-series machines are designed primarily for the finish grinding of helical screw components such as worm screws and rotors after they have been milled to a rough or semi-finished state. The TG 350 saves cycle time with its diamond dressing wheels that continually dress during the cycle. Fully automated on-machine probing provides closed-loop feedback of corrections to the dresser wheel and does not require a high level of operator skill. TG models offer production rates and accuracies to suit precise manufacturing strategies. | Holroyd Precision Limited 44 1706 526 590 | Horizontal Turning Center Handles Parts as Long as 118 Inches SMTCL's EHC 125300 horizontal turning center enables the produc- tion of large workpieces.

Headstock levers control the spindle speed for an available range of 55 to 2,200 rpm. A heavy- duty, 3-hp Delta variable-frequency driver inverter enables consistent torque at every speed from the three-phase motor (2 hp, two-speed) without requir- ing three-phase power.
