800A1000 Creep Feed Grinding Machine
The Model 800’s configuration is optimized for Creep Feed Grinding processes that require three linear axes. Specifically, it is a traveling column design with a Y axis ram traveling on the Z axis, and a stationary work-piece. The 800 Creep Feed Grinder’s structure allows for a small machine footprint while allowing all three structural guideway rail mating components to have a large closed box cross section, maximizing grinding stiffness and geometric accuracy. This configuration allows for easy implementation of common creep feed grinder options such as continuous-dress creep-feed (CDCF) grinding and indexing table part loading.
