For high-precision form grinding with its FANUC 31i-B control system, the S31 features a workhead with a direct measuring system and the StuderFormHSM form grinding software program that simplifies the grinding of curves.
Chuan Holdings is competent to undertake sizable projects and is also registered under the CW01 workhead for "General Building" at B1 Grade and CW02 workhead for "Civil Engineering" at B2 Grade, which would enable us to tender directly for Singapore public sector projects of amounts up to S$42 million and S$14 million respectively, demonstrating an outstanding strengths in the industry.
Because of the small diameter of its single piece dynamic workhead, the system can provide effective high shear mixing, even in vessels with narrow openings.
Swiss artist Philipp K lopfenstein airbrushed a bald eagle and American flag design on the machine, which has a Fa-nuc Oi control with Studer Pictogramming software; a 20" OD wheel for more abrasive with easy change-over; a 12 hp wheel drive; and an MT4 tailstock and MT5 workhead with 16 millionths runout for extreme accuracy, chucked or between centers.
In the Model 30, the air bearing workhead and wheelhead spindles are mounted together on a granite surface plate that floats on air, isolating the work from high and low frequency vibrations.
Each mixer incorporates the precision-engineered Silverson rotor/stator workhead, which has the capability to mix, emulsify, homogenize, solubilize, suspend, disperse and disintegrate solids and reduce processing times by up to 90 percent.
The new VSP Batch Mixer is specially designed to allow free flowing powders to be incorporated into liquids by feeding them from a hopper or vacuum wand through an eductor tube directly into the mixer's rotor/stator workhead. This introduces the powder to the liquid under intense high shear, producing an agglomerate-free dispersion, and practically eliminating problems such as rafting, dusting and "scumline" on the vessel walls.
Each mixer incorporates a proprietary rotor/stator workhead, which has the capability to mix, emulsify, homogenize, solubilize, suspend, disperse and disintegrate solids.
offers the re-designed Saturn FKS 450-1HNFE grinder with the TKE 330 electronic workhead. It offers five grinding programs, indexing up to 999 teeth -- with operator input of passes per grind and radial infeed program.
The B-axis has a direct drive, as well; its workhead has a swivelling range of +61[degrees] to -91[degrees].
The ISO 50 universal workhead with Studer's infeed ring sensing is capable of both live spindle grinding and grinding between centers, and has a maximum speed of 1,500 rpm.
The rotary encoder with a resolution of 0.001[degrees] is installed directly on the workhead spindle.
