New internal grinder brand for Europe as Usach debuts at EMO 2013

Added to MTDCNC by Hardinge Jones and Shipman on 15 August 2013

Making its European debut on the Kellenberger stand (Hall11, stand D60) at the forthcoming EMO exhibition will be a Usach 100-T4 high precision grinding machine – the first time a Usach unit has been exhibited in Europe.

Usach Technologies, Inc. is an American machine tool company based in Elgin, Illinois and specialising in the manufacture of high precision ID and OD grinding systems. The organisation was acquired by Hardinge Inc. in December 2012 and is now part of the Hardinge Grinding Group alongside the leading brands of L. Kellenberger & Co. AG, Jones & Shipman Hardinge Ltd, Hauser and Tschudin.

The Usach 100-T4 is a full production machine equipped with a CNC controlled multi spindle turret with torque motor and high precision Heidenheim rotary encoder.  It features a generous machining envelope with a 500mm X axis cross slide travel and 300mm travel longitudinal slide, both of which are fully protected on monorail style linear guideways with rollers with AC motor drives.

Following in the style of Kellenberger and Jones & Shipman using EASY control software, the machine users a Usach development called Open Architecture System.  This is a custom written machine operating and programming environment designed for simple yet intuitive access to standard CNC display and information screens.  It uses a Siemens 840D control with open system libraries and high speed communication.

The Open Architecture System is ideal for both production and quick part changeover style applications and also features a customisable user software panel, online help and error display to assist maintenance procedures.

Operator access is via a touch screen, mouse and keyboard with the screen permitting simultaneous viewing of the operator panel, axis position and part programme execution.

At EMO the machine will be equipped for demonstrations.
