Flexible applications and versatility
With the SATURN double surface grinding machine from JUNKER, plane-parallel workpieces of wide-ranging shapes and geometries can be machined both efficiently and precisely. Besides connecting rods, these workpieces include rolling elements, rings, universal joints, cams, needle cages or ball cages, pistons, coupling components and stamped parts of every kind. The segments that pick up different types of workpiece are quick and easy to change. The grinding machine is also particularly well suited to machining heavy workpieces, such as valve plates, bearing housings and pump housings. The SATURN is capable of processing various materials; for instance, Linamar uses it with not only microalloyed steels but also sintered metal.
