Sep 9, 2016 -- Supfina has added fine grinding to its extensive portfolio of surface-finishing systems, applying decades of expertise to create—in its new SPIRO series—economical machines that provide all of the best features for that particular process.
Take maintenance. Because the SPIRO eliminates water from the cooling process, there’s no chance of contamination—thus drastically reducing costs (the coolant is also recycled). The machine’s sturdy base keeps vibration to a minimum, greatly reducing tool wear, while SPIRO’s modular, customizable design allows quick tooling changes and easy accessibility. For example, the upper part of the machine swivels, allowing fast loading/unloading of a wide variety of parts.
From aluminum to steel, soft plastics to hard ceramics: No matter the material, the SPIRO series can achieve highly precise plane parallelism (≤ 1.0 µm) for precision bearings, pump gears, and valve plates, to name but a few parts. And because they can be processed in batches—up to 20 times faster than lapping and with more precision than double-disk grinding—costs per part are furthered reduced.
Combine all of these features with quality, reliability, and service, and Supfina—with manufacturing facilities in North Kingston, Rhode Island, and Wolfach, Germany—is fast becoming the technology leader for surface-finishing solutions.
Supfina will unveil the SPIRO at IMTS 2016 (Booths N-6299, N-6394, N-6398), to be held September 12-17 in Chicago.
