Experience the MicroCut 320 DS / TS

The microCut 320 DS / TS is equipped with two opposing grinding spindles. This design was specifically conceived for the simultaneous grinding of opposing surfaces. This grinding process offers numerous advantages including a reduction in processing time, increased parallelism and profile symmetry of the work piece. Additionally, the opposing grinding forces counteract and avoid material stresses in the work piece.

Profile dressing of the grinding wheel can be performed on the table or with headmounted roll dressing units. Headmounted dressing units can be used intermittently or continuously. To accommodate for the offset between two profiles the position of the upper dressing unit can be adjusted in the cross direction via CNC controls. This machine is commonly used to grind the fir tree profile on turbine vanes.

To increase productivity this model can be equipped with a loading table rotating +/- 180ยบ. This table allows the loading and unloading of work pieces during the grinding process.

Grinding wheels and dressing rolls are being changed in a separate machine area to improve ease of operation.

This machine comes equipped with the Sinumerik 840D CNC control system by Siemens and is prepared for a multitude of applications by ELB pre-defined program cycles. We have application engineers and programmers on staff for every grinding task.
