IMTS 2016: UNITED GRINDING Will Bring Collaborative Robotics to Grinding

Description

At IMTS, United Grinding will showcase one of its most advanced surface and profile grinding systems paired with an equally advanced robot that can work side-by-side with humans.

Also in booth N-6800, the company will debut several other new grinding systems, including an innovative ID machine with radius grinding capabilities to generate precise radii, spheres, balls, cones and diameters as well as the most compact laser production center in diamond tool manufacturing.

With a FANUC CR-7 Collaborative Robot, the BLOHM PLANOMAT HP 412 surface and profile grinding machine not only provides automated part loading and unloading but also the ability for operators to work alongside the robot. The Collaborative Robot – that does not require any type of safety fencing or light curtains – will aid in handling big heavy parts and allow operators to simply step up and interrupt those operations when needed. The robot will then automatically return to its task.

Automation further increases the already aggressive productivity output of the PLANOMAT HP 412 that delivers both high feed and high acceleration rates thanks to a powerful 15-kW (24.5 kW optional) grinding spindle drive, precision re-circulating ball screws and digital servo drives. The machine’s linear guideways are virtually maintenance free, and its Y and Z axes sport linear glass scales for precise machine motion.

Available with the new EasyProfile control or a Siemens 840D CNC, the six machines within the PLANOMAT HP series provide part grinding size ranges of 400 x 800 mm, 400 x 1,200 mm, 600 x 800 mm, 600 x 1,200 mm, 600 x 1,600 mm and 600 x 2,000 mm. The all-cast-iron machine beds, columns, tables and wheel heads of the PLANOMAT HP machines provide high rigidity and vibration dampening.
