Grinding with multiwheel technology

With the multiwheel technology developed by SCHAUDT, all cylindrical features of a workpiece can be ground with just one plunge. This reduces the cycle time to a minimum and increases the productivity of the machine accordingly. At the same time, the accuracy of the journals in relation to each other increases significantly. Even different journal widths on one workpiece are no problem for the multiwheel technology. This is a significant advantage compared to processes using a single or double wheel grinding.

The achieved productivity of the grinding process can be compared with centerless grinding, while the reference to the centering is maintained. The optionally available swivel-in spindles allow for highly efficient machining of the noncircular contours of the workpiece in the same clamping.

The technology is used on the SCHAUDT CamGrind and ShaftGrind series. One application example is the grinding of gear shafts, which places high demands on the machining process. The standardization of the grinding process is complicated by a variety of factors: different journal qualities on one workpiece, diverting references of the journals and centers, machining of journals, grooves, tooth tip circle diameters as well as shoulder surfaces. Here, the multiwheel technology can be used to achieve significantly shorter cycle times.
