SATURN - Double surface grinding machines
Double surface grinding
With SATURN double-wheel surface grinding, two vertical grinding wheels grind the workpiece simultaneously at its parallel end faces. With the through-feed grinding process, the grinding wheels are positioned slightly conically to each other so that the workpiece guided through the grinding zone has not reached its final dimension until it exits.
With SATURN plunge-cut grinding, the grinding wheels are arranged exactly parallel to each other. The workpiece carrier turns continuously at low speed. Both grinding wheels feed simultaneously until the final dimension is reached. Then the finish-ground workpiece is unloaded.
