Rush Machinery offers a series of air bearing end mill grinding fixtures that allow precision sharpening of end mills, reamers, shell mills, and other cutters. The spindle floats almost frictionless on a thin film of air, resulting in a smooth, even grind. The fixture quickly mounts on Rush drill and tool grinders, and is also available with a universal base to mount on most tool and cutter or surface grinders.
The units feature a hard chrome plated and ground spindle with a 10” stroke. Tools are held by 5-C or 5-ST collets or extension bushings for up to 2” (50mm) diameter shanks. The fixtures allow for grinding the O.D. of any number of flutes and include a 12-position index plate for end grinding (other index plates are available). The micrometer infeed is graduated in .001” (.04 mm) of diameter. Use of the fixture allows the operator to customize end mill geometry for optimum performance.
Rush Machinery specializes in manufacturing, servicing and marketing a complete line of production and support machinery for the cutting tool industry: Wheel Truing and Dressing Machines, Dynamic Balancing Machines, Carbide Rod and HSS Cut-Off Machines, Grinding Fluid Filtration Systems, Polycrystalline Tool Grinders, Drill and Tool Grinders, as well as Tool Grinding Fixtures.
