Large capacity OD Grinder
The Weldon Solaris CNC cylindrical grinder is designed to satisfy processing of large, heavy work parts. 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 Solaris 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, a Solaris 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.
A sub-spindle option is also available to present a second OD wheel or an internal grinding wheel for sequential grinding of various part features.
