The Generation X from Royal Master Grinders Inc. is a 3-axis micromachining system that can grind a workpiece to a diameter as small as 0.0005". The machine is accurate to 0.1 micron on diameter and the linear axis, 0.5° on the rotational axis and is able to impart finishes as fine as 2 Ra, according to the company. With the addition of a regulating wheel housing and dresser, the Generation X can be converted into a conventional centerless grinder for infeed and through-feed applications.

Rollomatic

has reacted to the market's demand for more microproducts by introducing a grinding machine that can produce tools that are, according to the company, "impossible to see with the naked eye."

The smaller the tool is, the more difficult it is to set up a grinding machine. Rollomatic focused on this challenge when developing the new machine, the Nano6 Grinding Center for Micro Tools. The company redesigned and modified the workhead and the shank-guidance system to speed setups.

Great micro tools begin with exact blank preparation. The demand for blank concentricity makes pinch grinding necessary to achieve the run-out needed.

Walter announced plans today to unveil its new Helitronic Micro tool grinder at the upcoming IMTS 2008 in Chicago, according to a press release issued by the United Grinding Tool Group.
