We are always the reliable partner for our customers when there are special requirements with regard to complex technologies, accuracy, workpiece dimensions and productivity.
Our grinding machines
The most precise grinding machine in the world
Our WayGrind is arguably the most precise large machine tool in the world. The worldwide machine tool industry uses them for precision machining of the guideways of their machines.
The use of WALDRICH COBURG guideway and surface grinding machines is not limited to the high-precision machining of components for machine tools made of gray cast iron or steel.
Components made of hard stone (e.g. granite), ceramics or polymer concrete for the production of measuring machines or measuring plates can also be machined.
Other typical applications include fully automatic grinding of base plates for multiple molds of injection molding machines or plates in fixture construction.
The precision grinding machine for the production of compact linear guides
The RailGrind is a precision grinding machine for the production of compact linear guides. In the two-support version, the two profile sides of the linear guide rails are ground simultaneously.
The three-support version has two grinding supports with vertical grinding spindle on the machine gantry for simultaneous grinding of the two profile side surfaces of the linear guide rail and one grinding support with horizontal grinding spindle for grinding the “contact surface” of the linear guide rail. The simultaneous machining of all three accuracy-determining surfaces of the workpiece achieves the highest accuracies.
