Four indexing locations on the head stock with the air operated index pins make it faster to dial in the crankshaft properly. Easily adjusted outboard counterweights never need to be supplemented by inboard weights. The CG360's are built very heavy with widely spaced ways to assure positive alignment of the wheelhead to the table. Moreover, the controls are easier to use. Precision Incremental In-Feed Lever is much easier to use than a handwheel to achieve the precise desired journal size. One full stroke of this lever moves the wheehead precisely .0004”, and it can be used in steps to move the wheelhead .0001”, .0002”, or .0003”. The superior accuracy of this machine allows double plunge grinding precisely to the same size leaving no lap line. CG360 provides longer machine life, longer grinding wheel life and greater safety for the operator and machine.
The experience start on 1953 under the logo Zanrosso on the field of automotive after sales service with the production of lathes for drums and discs for veichles. In the 1976 born Tecnodue company specialized on garage equipment like two post lifts and gas analyzer.
Year by year the product improve till became a world wide leader on machine tools for engines rebuilding, marine engines and railways engines.
In the next years AZ has grown as leader in the production of crankshaft grinding machines for energy, locomotive and marine field up to 12 meters length, sold all over the world 3000 crankshaft and rolls grinders and this permits AZ to be called "the crankshaft specialist".
On 2006 a new challenge. With the achieved experience AZ enter on the market of the special grinding machines especially for the aerospace.
AZ spa is a company with quality system ISO9001 certified by DNV GL.
The presence of a large number of qualified and loyal customers and the presence of AZ in more than 90 countries proves its success.
The aim of AZ is to solve grinding special problems giving to the customers not only a machine but a complete solution.
The machines produces by AZ perform the most advanced mechatronics solutions. The measurement, the movement, the controls are choosen on the top worldwide leader supplier and their combinations with AZ engineer creativity produce one of the most sofisticate range of product today on the market.
Bejond the mechanical and electronic knowledge, AZ applies to their machines an innovative IT and web technology for assistance, training and after sales service monitoring in real time the working process.
