The C-CNC range of grinding machines can be supplied in a number of formats, from a standard cylindrical machine with a single external wheel, right up to a fully universal machine with B axis indexing and multiple wheel combinations. This range offers excellent flexibility and performance and is ideally suited to smaller components such as punches, shafts and surgical equipment. By introducing the C axis work head rotation control with interpolation the C-CNC machines are also able to carry out non-round and spiral-shaped component grinding. The C-CNC, as with all GER machines, offers an extensive choice of machine customisation together with a large variety of accessories to enable each machine to be tailored to an individual customer’s production requirements.
For components up to 1000mm in length, 275mm in diameter and up to 100 kg in weight.
The machines are equipped with the latest generation FANUC 0i-TF CNC control, motors and equipment.
