Chevalier’s (Santa Fe Springs, CA) FGP-608LM grinder combines linear motor drive, three-axis, closed-loop electronic control and structural stability to deliver up to 2.5G accel/decel speed, 720 times per minute reciprocating rate at 5/8" stroke and 328fpm table speed. Heavily ribbed solid Meehanite cast iron castings with hardened and ground ways coupled with its spindle enable the machine to operate without vibration during the high-speed, close-tolerance machining process. Features include 6" x 8" work area, 0.0001" X and 0.000040" YZ axis repeatabilities, 2,000-10,000 rpm spindle speed, FANUC linear motor for models with FANUC 18iM control and Siemens linear motor for those with Smart control. Two control options are available: FANUC 18iM control and Chevalier’s Smart control currently used in its SMART series grinders. Easy-to-reach, closed-loop electronic control pendant features conversational programming, G-code, custom programs and options for networking. With combined speed and precision, the machine guarantees accelerated cycle times, reduced non-grinding time and increased throughput. In a test cut done on a ½" x 1" x 0.040" tungsten carbide workpiece using a diamond wheel, the machine made 35 slots 1/8" deep, 0.006" wide with a pitch error of 0.0000080" and perpendicularity of 0.00016". The entire cycle was completed in just three hours and 30 minutes.
