PCD Grinder



The Polycrystalline Tool Grinders allow for economical manufacturing and regrinding of: PCD, CVD, PCBN, Carbide, and HSS tools. These machines grind angles and radii on standard and special turning and milling inserts, boring tools, milling cutters, grooving tools, reamers, and other special tools. The rigid construction with a 3-HP variable speed grinding spindle provides for vibration-free grinding and fast stock removal.

Both the Model FC-200D and the Model FC-500D feature a unique video optical system with 15-120x (zoom) magnification and a black and white video monitor. This system provides a higher magnification and/or a larger field of view than most machine-mounted optical comparator systems. In addition, the video camera moves with the worktable for easy set-up and for inspection during and after grinding. Their rigid construction and a 3 Hp variable speed grinding spindle allow for vibration-free grinding and fast stock removal.
The Model FC-500D is a larger, more versatile machine than the FC-200D. In addition to all of the capabilities of the Model FC-200D, the Model FC-500D features vertical grinding spindle travel, a wheel travel range of 500 mm and an oscillation stroke of 70mm. The Model FC-500D is also designed for grinding reamers, drills, end mills, and multi-step form tools.

Design Features:
  • One-piece cast iron base provides extra rigidity and minimizes vibration.
  • The cross slide and longitudinal slides are mounted with SCHNEEBERGER type N and O heavy duty & precision linear slide guides for accuracy and life.
  • Grinding the primary cutting edge. Tip radius and secondary cutting edge without changing set up.
  • Heavy duty swivel table pivots on 4 piece precision angular contact bearings.
  • The oscillation is adjustable in position, stroke and frequency.
  • C.C.D camera with LCD monitor and precision scale for easy set up & inspection during the grinding operation.
  • Zoom system adjusts from 15X to 120X magnification so that even a 0.02mm radius can be ground and inspected.
