DMG MORI integrates grinding into its duoBlock machines
- March 3, 2017
DMG MORI has introduced grinding technology in its duoBlock machines to create a machining centre witht he ability to mill, turn and grind in a single setup.
As of now integration of the grinding technology is available for the size 80, 125 and 160 machines of the
DMU / DMC FD duoBLOCK series, thereby guaranteeing best surface qualities of up to 0.4 µm.
Milling, turning and grinding are carried out in a single set-up, so deviations resulting from retooling are also eliminated. This complete machining capability including grinding is further supported by exclusive DMG MORI technology cycles.
Called the FDS (F-mill, D-turn, S-grind) models, the machines support internal, external and face grinding. Truing cycles expand the range of functions. Also new is an AE sensor (Acoustic, Emission) that guarantees maximum reliability and accuracy by detecting the first contact between the grinding wheel and the truing unit. The first contact between the grinding wheel and the component is also determined via the spindle load factor. DMG MORI has equipped the 1,300-liter coolant unit of the FDS machines with a centrifugal filter that catches even the finest particles (> 10 µm) from the grinding process.
