United Grinding North America’s Blohm PROFIMAT MC high-performance heavy-duty traveling-column grinding center is said to offer the capabilities modern production environments require for various industries and applications. Measuring 94.488" (2,400 mm) wide, the 5-axis, space-saving machine includes an automatic tool changer with up to 24 tools and offers multiple spindle configurations, including an optional horizontal spindle or a stationary or NC-swiveling vertical spindle.

With standard grinding wheel diameter capacities starting at 15.748" (400 mm), a double NC rotary table and an automatic loading system,United Grinding says the PROFIMAT MC is ideal for continuous path-controlled creep feed grinding. An optional tool changer, overhead dressing system and RazorTec grinding-wheel cleaning system boost performance further, as does a wide range of accessories and special systems for workpiece clamping and handling. Wide guide spacings and anti-friction guideways on all machine axes ensure a rigid machine structure that minimizes vibration and reduces system maintenance.
