Vertical Grinding Machine with Automatic Chuck Changer



Taiyo Koki Grinding Machine Company, a DMG MORI company, a leading provider of vertical grinding machine solutions for aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment and tooling manufacturers, has announced the debut of its Super-High Production Vertical Grinding Machine featuring a two place (PGV-2) or three place (PGV-3) automatic chuck changer. These machines allow for significant increases in productivity by increasing spindle run time and by reducing part grinding and loading times. The chuck change time is less than three seconds with the green part being changed outside of the machine while the grinder is running. "The ability to grind internal and external diameters and faces simultaneously can increase productivity by over 200%. Typical increases in spindle run time average between 10%-15%," said a company spokesperson.

Multiple operations are often reduced to just one part chucking. Part quality is improved automatically as the part is only clamped one time - this process generates automatic concentricity between grinding operations. Manual or automatic part loading is made simple outside of the machine via the part loading / unloading station. There is fast and easy access for human or robotic loading methods without having to open or close the machine door.

A 50% reduction in floor space requirements is realized by reducing the machine count necessary to perform multiple operations by doing them all simultaneously on one machine. Floor space dimensions for the PGV-3 are 63" (1,600 mm) wide x 90" (2,300 mm) deep.
