1 meter capacity OD Grinder
The Weldon Altaira CNC cylindrical grinder is designed to satisfy processing of large, work parts up to 1 meter (40”) in length. Rotary and linear axes are sealed from airborne contaminates providing unmatched longevity in carbide and ceramic grinding applications.
Available with either a straight or angular wheel head (factory set) the Altaira can grind outside diameters, shoulders, and faces in a single set-up. The CNC control can address complex form grinding (tapers, radii, etc.) via form dressed wheels or profiling. Properly equipped, an Altaira is ideally suited for high speed Peel grinding with CBN abrasives. Additionally, a programmable ”C” axis package can be provided to accommodate non-round grinding applications.
