From Individual Machining to to Complete Production Lines

CamGrind L1

Basic Data

The single-slide CamGrind L can be retooled and upgraded to meet changing application requirements at any time, thanks to its perfectly coordinated modular design. In addition to individual machining, this machine can also handle complete production lines.

Machine description

  • Compact cross-slide machine for cylindrical and noncircular grinding of shaft-type workpieces up to 1100 mm in length, height of centres 220 mm
  • Single-slide machine with max. 3 grinding wheels for individual machining and production lines
  • Use of CBN grinding wheels up to 480 mm Ø
  • Digital drives for high-precision axis positioning
  • Machine bed with optimal damping characteristics


  • Swivel-in spindle for machining of cam forms with concave radii.
  • B-axis in the optimum configuration with up to 3 grinding spindles
  • Portal loading system


Granitan® machine base

The CamGrind L1 has a proven Granitan® machine bed. This material possesses excellent damping characteristics and high thermal stability. This is a big advantage when machining workpieces with high quality requirements.

Swivel-in spindle

Thanks to SCHAUDT‘s patented swivel-in spindle, the CamGrind L1 can be additionally equipped with up to two grinding wheel. The spindle is mainly equipped with ceramic CBN wheels. Electroplated or metal-bonded tools can also be used.


The CamGrind L1 features a high-precision, directly powered workhead with excellent runout characteristics. The rigid design of the directly powered spindle makes the headstock suitable for clamping with MK4 center points as well as for chuck operation.


The hydraulically actuated slide tailstock of the CamGrind L1 has a stroke of 150 mm. The tailstock can therefore be used for various workpieces without any set-up time. Monitoring of several clamping positions is also possible. The clamping pressure can be continuously adjusted manually.

B Axis

The B-axis with its three grinding spindles offers the optimal solution for every machining task. Any angle can be swiveled to within the swiveling range of 240°. This enables further interesting grinding processes, such as grinding flat shoulders using the angular plunge method or taper grinding using the plunge method without profiled grinding wheel.

Multiwheel Technology

The further development of simultaneous machining into multiwheel technology means that all cylindrical features of a workpiece can be ground in a single plunge. This reduces the cycle time to a minimum and the productivity of the machine increases accordingly.

In-process gauging

High-precision in-process measuring heads can be used without problem in the CamGrind L1. Measurement occurs during the grinding process and eliminates the need for manual corrections by the machine operator. As a result auxiliary times are shortened significantly, and cycle times are reduced.

Swivel-in measuring probe

The CamGrind L1 is optionally equipped with a swivel-in measuring probe. This is mounted on the cross slide, which results in tremendous flexibility without additional set-up. The swivel-in process occurs pneumatically or hydraulically, depending on the version.

WOP-G programming interface

The WOP-G programming system enables quick and easy programming of cylindrical and noncircular workpiece contours. From just a few inputs WOP-G creates harmonic speed profiles, which can be variably adapted. This enables combination machining of concave and convex profiles in a single clamping with the highest precision.
