Weldon 1632 GOLD OD Rod Mill Roll CNC Grinder

Posted on: February 14th, 2014 by Rick Holberg

1An Ohio based producer of rod steel accepted delivery of a new Weldon model 1632 GOLD OD CNC grinder. In this application a carbide mill roll is supported by a heavy duty slip-fit arbor assembly. A full radius plated diamond grinding wheel is used to either plunge or CNC profile grind grooves in the circumference. The machine is also capable of OD topping and groove regrinds as necessary.

System features:

  • Fanuc 32i TD CNC control
  • Firetrace fire suppression system
  • Heidenhain precision glass scales X and Z
  • Weldon slip-fit arbor assembly with face clamp

Weldon Solutions offers a full line of CNC OD, ID, and combination grinders. As a Fanuc Robotics integrator Weldon can also address your machine tending, material removal, material handling, and packaging/palletizing needs.

Weldon Accomplishes Roll Die Pass Grinding with 1632 Gold

Posted on: October 20th, 2013 by Rick Holberg

1632_GOLD_Grinder_01A world leader in the production of titanium tubing for the Aerospace and Medical industries selects Weldon Solutions for roll die pass grinding. This complex CNC grinding process was originally developed on the users first Weldon grinder, installed over twenty five years ago and still in production today. The improved hardware and faster controls have combined to increased productivity up to 50%.

A Weldon-designed cross-axis pneumatic rotary dressing system generates a full radius on conventional abrasives.

A Renishaw probe is used to establish lateral position with part mounted on a custom between centers arbor. The probe is also used to measure the OD for automatic depth control.

This unique application requires grinding of the roll pass surface for an increasing radius value through the full pass length.

System features:

  • SBS automatic wheel balancer
  • Weldon pneumatic rotary dresser
  • Dittel acoustic emissions sensor
  • Heidenhain rotary and linear glass scales
  • Renishaw probe/locator
  • Fanuc 32i AT CNC control

Weldon Solutions offers a full line of CNC OD, ID, and combination grinders. As a Fanuc Robotics integrator Weldon can also address your machine tending, material removal, material handling, and packaging/palletizing needs.
