Guaranteed Quality. Over and Over Again.
The G300 was specifically designed for customers looking to produce high-precision parts either between centers or in a chucking mode. The G300 provides flexibility allowing you to grind a variety of part configurations with minimal set-up.
Whether you need a straight or angular wheel head, the G300 can grind outside diameters, shoulders and faces in a single set-up. The wheelheads, which include hydrodynamic spindle bearings, allow for superior surface finishes and roundness capability.
