CNC Centerless Grinder Delivers Savings for Aerospace Fasteners Large-Part Vacuum Dryer Ofers Standalone or Integrated Options The Bertsche vacuum dryer can be either a standalone drying system or integrated in automation cells when bone dry parts are a critical part of fnal part condition. Parts are manually or robot loaded to a part nest pallet, then shuttled to the vacuum drying station where residual water or fuids are evaporated, leaving the part completely dry. Options include a pre-vacuum dry part heater, air blast dry tunnel to remove excess water (prior to vacuum drying), and/or an IR heater element in the vacuum chamber. The unit is standalone PLC-controlled or part of a feld bus network with a robot interface. The vacuum chamber can handle parts as large as 30" × 30" × 10". :: Bertsche Engineering Corp. 847-537-8757 Glebar Company developed its GT-610 CNC centerless grinding machine to infeed grind as many as eight aerospace fasteners per cycle with extreme precision and accuracy, the company says. Setting up eight parts per cycle is the same as setting up one part per cycle on this system. On older technology, setting up that many parts to run at once introduces too much room for opera- tor error and is time consuming. The P4K allows for 100 percent inspection of each part: It scans all parts in a cycle (all stations) and feeds back diameter, including taper and radii, to correct wheel dress shape automatically and for the complete profle geometry. This is done in a matter of seconds, reducing setup time and im- proving quality control, the company says. The GT-610 CNC is designed for manufacturers to increase their production capacity, fexibility and automation capabilities, all within a small manufacturing footprint. :: Glebar Co.
