The ITM UODG is an O.D. Grinding Machine for chamfering taps. The machine is equipped with an automatic cassette loading system that uses standard cassettes for extended production runs. With four CNC controlled axes, setup time is fast, making the machine economical for both large and small tool grinding production runs.
Setting up a new job is easily accomplished. Since the distance from the face of the wheel flange to the point of the tail stock center is known, the operator only needs to enter a small number of parameters such as: tool length, tool O.D., number of flutes, chamfer angle, chamfer length, wheel width, wheel O.D., and the angle(s) of the cam relief. (It is possible to vary the angle of the cam relief along the arc of the chamfer)
ITM was founded with the purpose of supplying application driven, high value production grinding machines to a worldwide customer base. ITM builds the machines that help customers build precise tools in less time. Precision built to last. Continuous improvement of products is an ITM policy. Grinding out the limitations.
