The CVG series vertical universal cylindrical grinding machine with pallet changer – available in three part-swing diameter sizes 25.5", 37.5", and 53" – grinds the OD, ID, and faces in one part chucking with machine roundness accuracy of less than 0.00004". Standard frequency, twin opposing wheel spindles feature a larger heavy-duty spindle dedicated to OD and face grinding (using a 14" diameter wheel) and a smaller spindle for ID and face grinding.

All CVG machines come with a six place automatic tool charger using the HSK-E100 type quill clamping system. Large numbers of stored and qualified wheels reduce setup time and improve part quality so complicated parts can be completed in one chucking. Grinding wheel loading and unloading is through the ergonomically positioned side door of the enclosure.

Step drill program

A carbide step drill program features Drill-Chamfer tools available in a full range of sizes online from stock.

The high-penetration rate solid carbide EF Step Drill drills and chamfers in one operation, saving time and providing more accurate hole-to-chamfer location and optimal hole preparation for tapping or thread milling. Tools feature a double margin design on the minor diameter for the roundest threaded hole size, and the web construction is adjusted for each diameter for efficient chip evacuation.

It includes sizes from 2.8mm to 15.5mm minor diameter, UNC/UNF, and a full-size range in 2XD and 3.5XD lengths. Tools are coolant-thru, 4-margin designed with TiAIN-T14 coating, can cut a range of materials, and are available in cut or form thread diameters.

Laser scanning microscope

The LEXT OLS5000 3D laser confocal scanning microscope offers imaging quality and acquires data 4x faster, improving user experience with automated software.

An optional expansion frame and long working distance (LWD) lens measure samples up to 210mm high and concavities up to 25mm deep. With the stitching function, the microscope can expand field of view (FOV) by connecting up to 2,500 images together.

A 10x lens, optimized for a 405nm-wavelength light source, and a long working distance lens reduces aberration and enables accurate measurements across the entire field of view. 4K scanning technology, with a resolution of 4,096 pixels in the X direction, enhances resolution and improves shape measurement reliability.
