EASY SHAPE 3000 (ES 3000) – cylindrical grinding made easy

Easy shape is the newly developed cylindrical and polygon grinding machine range. It is used to grind carbide blanks, ceramic, glass, etc. in the diameter range of 0.5 to 100mm. An ISO50 work piece head offers a wide range of possibilities for work piece clamping. Different dialogues support the machine operator and shorten the programming of simple shapes without restrictions for geometrical complexity:

  • “Teach-in” for simple diameter reduction over a certain length
  • “Peal Grinding” to generate carbide blanks for the cutting tool industry
  • “Polygone Grinding” for simple automatic grinding of 2-d non-cylindrical geometries

For all dialogues only the final contour is defined or the .dxf file loaded. All the infeed steps are automatically calculated. Customised dialogues are available on request.

The machine is built on a vibration-reducing polymer concrete machine base. The grinding spindle is on the z-axis table and the work piece head stock on the x-axis. High precision roller guides guarantee a high rigidity and running smoothness. X- and Z-axis are driven by recirculating ball screws and servo motors.

The machine can be run in automatic mode, but also in inching function, handwheel or MDI. The work piece head stock can optionally be equipped with a torque motor. With this additional axis (C) it is possible to grind 2-d polygones such as dies, punches or rotary cams. For high precision requirements optical scales are recommended.
