New line of Robbi cylindrical grinding centres from RK

Added to MTDCNC by RK Int Machine Tools on 28 July 2014

RK International has now launched its new line of Robbi cylindrical grinding centres with the option of manual, PLC or CNC controlled machines. The range of machines starts with the smallest offering providing a centre height of 180mm with the larger machines going up to 595mm centre height with a distance between centres of up to 6m for the standard line of machines.

The PLC controlled machine has a Siemens control and drives with the same technology as the full CNC machine. The key difference with the PLC controlled machine is that it will only operate in a single axis for machining parallel diameters whereas the full CNC control offers the capability to produce taper and contour grinding.

Commenting upon the flexible new line of grinding centres, RK International Sales Director, Mr Dick Aldrich says: 'Whilst the standard line of machines cater for the majority of market demands, we have just sold a machine with 1.5m swing and over 2.5m between centres, so the option for bespoke solutions can support the complete cylindrical grinding demands of the market. We have had considerable success in the aerospace market with the ability to grind carbide and ceramics. Whilst hard turning is increasingly commonplace, it would be difficult for these machines to achieve accuracy levels that are sub 4 micron without the acquisition of a remarkably expensive turning centre. With the new line of Robbi machines we can offer precision to 1 micron, provided the environment is conducive. This is all offered in a cost effective package.'

Manufactured in Northern Italy, the high quality Robbi machines are manufactured to remarkably high standards with reliability guaranteed. As with all machine tools supplied by RK International, service and support are beyond compare.
