C & B Machinery Expands CBV Series Clamp Bore Grinders
August 22, 2018
C & B Machinery's lineup of vertical clamp bore micro-finishing grinders has been expanded yet again. The company continues to strive to meet customers’ ever-growing needs for flexibility, throughput volumes, integration with plant automation and maximizing perishable tooling life.
The single spindle models can be an economical choice for lower volumes and lower tooling cost. The double spindle models work well for applications where different work holding at each station has advantages and volumes are a bit higher. To the other extreme, C & B's rotary index models can offer the tooling flexibility and the very highest level of throughput.
C & B now offer a higher speed grinding spindle option to maximize efficiency for customers using CBN grinding wheels vs. conventional free cutting, self-dressing vitrified wheels.
The CBV Series offers multiple part handling options including operator hand load/unload, robotics integration (Fanuc Authorized Integrator), gantry load/unload with part flipping capabilities, and in-process gauging with load pre-check for stock and runout. The gauge fixture is designed for quick adjustments with no tools required. Software is designed for control of stock removal on each side and part orientation entering or exiting the cell. Error proofing for part load and part type can also be designed into this system.
