Studer unveils new machine for long workpieces
Studer unveiled its new universal machine, the favorit 1600 with a centre distance of 1,600 mm (63 inches) in order to handle long workpieces.
As with all Studer cynlindrical grinding machines, the proven Granitan® machine bed ensures the legendary precision. The wheelhead, which can be automatically positioned every 3 degrees, can take one belt-driven external and internal grinding spindle respectively.
Other features include: height of centres; 175 mm; maximum workpiece weight between centres 150 kg; cross slide (x-axis) maximum travel 370 mm; longitudinal slide (x-axis) maximum travel 1,750mm.
This CNC universal cylindrical grinding machine is designed for grinding both single part and series production and can be fitted with automation. With various options such as measuring control, balancing system, contact detection and longitudinal positioning, it can be subsequently adapted to other grinding tasks.
Thanks to the practice-oriented STUDER grinding software, with its proven Studer- pictogramming, even less experienced users can program grinding and dressing cycles quickly and efficiently. With the optionally available StuderGRIND software, special applications, such as profiling the grinding wheel for complex workpiece shapes, can be efficiently programmed. Development, production, assembly and testing of the STUDER products are process-oriented and comply with the strict guidelines of VDA 6.4 and ISO 9001.
The new machine also includes STUDER WireDress.
