The AGN4 has been designed to produce high precision small parts and is capable of performing plunge, contour, and traverse grinding operations. This compact machine occupies only 30 square feet of floor space, but its standard configuration makes it adaptable for factory automation. The fully enclosed grinder is available with either a straight or 30° angular wheelhead.
The grinder is equipped with a combination live/dead spindle workhead for versatility. Highly rigid hydrodynamic wheel spindle bearings assure superior accuracy and smooth surface finishes.
A FANUC CNC control is standard on the AGN4. Available options include an automatic loader, in-process OD gauge, automatic lateral locator, and various wheel dressers.
