Fives will debut its Landis-Bryant RU2 Fuel MGMT grinder at IMTS 2016 (Booth N-7018). This precision grinding technology incorporates a modular multi-surface grinder with extended flexibility to grind most complex components for fuel systems, valve and drive trains, bearings, aerospace and medical applications.
The Landis-Bryant RU2 Fuel MGMT grinder was specifically designed for the challenging requirements of fuel system components that require tight control over related features during grinding operations through a single handling. It employs a dual-slide arrangement in Z that can accommodate up to 6 grinding spindles. The Fives booth at IMTS (N-7018), will demonstrate the 4-spindle model with a coolant through 90,000 rpm, ID spindle and multiple dressing options.
Landis-Bryant RU2 grinders offer multi-slide possibilities in both the X and Z axis with multiple work heads, wheel heads, and dressing systems that make the machine ideal for process operations such as bore, seat, and face. Its granite epoxy bed includes a thermal stability system to monitor the temperature, and together with the optional adaptive thermal compensation, provides thermal stability. A stiff hydrostatic round-bar guideway system enables location of all axes resulting in dimensional and geometric accuracy, due to Heidenhain glass scales and Fanuc linear motors. Modular design enables flexibility and allows customers to choose from multiple sizes, a range of machine configurations of work spindles, grinding spindles, dressing spindles, slides, tooling and fixtures and the ability to handle parts up to 14 in (350 mm) in diameter and 7 in (177 mm) in length. The Landis-Bryant RU2 grinders can be configured as chucker, shoe centerless and center-type systems.
