The workpiece is positioned and clamped between centers. Grinding is carried out while clamped; the CNC-controlled support rail, the regulating wheel and the grinding wheel are evenly readjusted until the finished dimension is reached. This unique, ingenious procedure is currently patent pending.
Driving is carried out via a driver on the C-axis of the workhead. Upon the completion of grinding, the grinding gap opens and the workpiece is removed.
