Marposs' dual plane balancing system for CNC grinding machinesClick image to enlarge

Marposs has announced the availability of its Marposs/Dittel M7002/MA7002 next generation dual plane balancing systems for high precision grinding machines.

Relying upon a new deterministic balancing algorithm and specially designed balancing head, these new units deliver an improved balancing process with significant cycle time reduction.

The M7002/MA7002 electromechanical units control the balancing heads directly whether in the stationary position or during high speed operation (up to 30,000 RPM) to automatically detect, evaluate, and monitor imbalances on spindle bearings. Fast and precise compensation is performed by a non-contact balancing system, which can be either internal or external to the machine, to optimize machining cycle times and improve product quality.

The M7002 hardware includes the two-plane automatic balancing software while the MA7002 system also includes additional capability for process monitoring, crash-control, first contact detection and/or dressing monitoring for up to four integrated sensors.  Machine control is provided through a digital I/O interface with Profibus and visualized via an Ethernet connection.

The new units are particularly suited to wide grinding wheels, gear grinders, double spindle and centerless applications.
