Effective automation of size control on a thrufeed centerless grinder requires precise part measurement, responsive trend analysis, and an effective compensation technique for the grinder. Each of CGI's TFD-Series Gage Stations, in combination with a D500 Gage Controller, provides these capabilities at the peak of current technology.
Each model in the series has a gage fixture suited to particular types of parts. The fixture is integrated into a dual-belt conveyor specifically designed for durability and for part stability in the gaging zone. The parts exit the grinder onto the conveyor and are carried through the gage. As they enter the fixture, the parts are firmly located by a "top guide" suited to the part type. The gage head "floats" mechanically to align the measuring contacts with the part centerline. The location mechanisms are adjustable over a range of sizes appropriate to the application.
