The CGX model is an entry level crankshaft grinding machine suitable for rebuilding of crankshafts or for low productivity manufacturing. The machine is equipped with PLC control system. X and Z axes are moved by ballscrews on guideways and controlled by linear encoder. The lubricant system is centralized and there is automatic dressing cycle with automatic positioning of the grinding wheel. Complete with a fully automatic balancing system and vibration detector for best cutting condition of the grinding wheel. 3D Touch probe fixed on grinding wheel‐head permit the longitudinal setup of the workpiece and the position of grinding wheel. The Z axes travels 2,550 mm and the X axes travels 315 mm. The grinding wheel diameter is 710 mm.
One full stroke of this lever moves the wheelhead precisely .0004,” and it can be used in steps to move the wheelhead .0001,” .0002,” or .0003.” The superior accuracy of this machine allows double plunge grinding precisely to the same size leaving no lap line.
