Weldon Solutions CNC Grinders

Single or Dual Spindle ID Grinding

The Phoenix ID Grinder is Weldon's new compact ID Grinder. The Phoenix can automatically grind diameters, tapers, chamfers, radii, shoulders, and contours in one set-up and one continuous operation using a FANUC CNC control.

The Dual Spindle option offers the possibility to grind two different surfaces in one setup or accomplish a rough and finish grind in a single chucking. The grinder can be configured with spindles to best match the diameters that are being ground for the highest possible performance. The addition of a variable speed rotary dresser allows for dressing of both aluminum oxide and superabrasive grinding wheels.
