MACRO and MACRO-L - The Main Technical Characteristics:

  • The MACRO Philosophy

    The MACRO machine range is based on the innovative Moving-Wheel-Head (MWH) concept. All linear movements when positioning and grinding are performed by the grinding head. Compared to conventional moving column and moving table concepts this design arranges the axes in a very compact way, which results in optimum force distribution and minimal thermal variation, properties which result in best possible process control over a long lifespan.

    The most diverse range of areas of application
    MACRO machines are used in almost every industrial sector in which precision mechanical components are found. Wherever there is a need for accurate profiles or slots and/or close finish requirements MICRON equipment offers excellent, economical results. In the aircraft engine and stationary turbine industries, components with poor machinability, such as turbine blades and vanes, can be ground efficiently. Further applications are the highly efficient production of linear guide components, saw tooth profiles, gear racks, gear rings, guides, work holding details, cutting tools, broaches and highly dense ceramic parts. Steering system components and rocker arms are machined in the automotive industry. Stators and rotors in the hydraulic industry are other areas of application.


    MACRO

    The standard MACRO creep feed grinder provides a X-travel up to 600 mm long. The torque tube design machine base guarantees superior vibration dampening and thermal stability. Spindles are available with different speed and power ranges to best match the application. All spindles feature liquid cooled motors, and high speed HEDG spindles offer liquid cooled bearing packs as well. This further enhances thermal behavior and consistent production results.


    MACRO-L

    The machine is equipped with precision linear guide ways, ball screws, and digital drives in all axes. The state of the art SIEMENS 840D CNC control allows precision contour dressing and grinding and offers up to 5-axis Interpolation.



     

  • The MACRO series is characterized mainly by the following useful features:

    • torque tube design
    • polymer concrete-filled machine bed
    • tool slides of the machine are made from cast iron
    • high stock removal rates achievable
    • efficient vibration damping
    • high thermal stability
    • water-cooled spindles and spindle drives
    • different rotary speeds and power levels available
    • stable temperature during grinding
    • consistently high part quality
  • Software Characteristics:
    • State-of-the-art CNC technology. Siemens 840D with multi-channel structure and interpolation of up to 5 axes.
    • Pre-installed programs and grinding cycles.
    • Option: Acoustical Emission Monitoring System. Sensor in spindle nose with inductive signal transmission in back of spindle.
    • Further options: Integrated Balancing system for fully automated wheel balancing, high pressure cleaner, automatic nozzle adjustment, etc.

    Software Benefits:
    • Simple operation. Ideal for machining complex grinding applications.
    • Comfortable and fast adaption of different grinding operations.
    • Useable for collision monitoring, first detection of work piece and dressing. Increases production safety and reduces operating costs.
    • Best tailored to the customer's needs.

     

    The MICRON Dressing Systems

    The dressing of the wheel is a controlling factor for a successful grinding application. For best possible process flexibility MICRON machines can be equipped with a variety of dressing systems ranging from a tiltable table mounted disc dresser to an overhead diamond roll system with or without continuous dress capability. Also available are highly rigid crushing devices. Software is available for CAD assisted creation of disc dressing programs.

Flexible CNC grinding centers with a modular construction:
Highly precise – economical – user-friendly

MICRON machines are modular CNC grinding centers. They are compact, reliable, and especially designed for Creep Feed-, Profile-, and HEDG grinding. Compared to conventional surface grinding, these processes allow high stock removal rates. MICRON machines, therefore, offer a high level of dynamic rigidity.

MICRON machines are used in almost every industrial sector in which precision mechanical components are found. Wherever there is a need for accurate profiles or slots and / or close finish requirements MICRON equipment offers excellent, economical results.
