TruArc vs conventional oscillationClick image to enlarge

Kalamazoo Industries has developed a new abrasive wheel oscillation system called Tru Arc oscillation.

Unlike conventional oscillation where the wheel is moved rapidly up and down by a cam, the Tru Arc oscillation system moves the wheel laterally, providing a greater arc of contact, resulting in faster cutting. Cam-operated conventional oscillation limits wheel travel to +/- 1/32 of an inch, while the Tru Arc oscillation system can be adjusted to move from 1/32 of an inch to almost one inch.

Both types of systems are designed to be used with coolant which produces a smooth cut, but the Tru Arc oscillation system, powered by a massive motor, can reduce the time to cut super alloys from minutes to seconds.
