The MA1420 Universal Cylindrical Grinder is a precision machining tool used in various industries for grinding the external and internal surfaces of cylindrical workpieces. This type of grinder is known for its versatility and ability to achieve high-precision results. Here’s a detailed description of the MA1420 Universal Cylindrical Grinder:
- Machine Type: The MA1420 is a universal cylindrical grinder, meaning it is designed to perform both external (OD) and internal (ID) cylindrical grinding operations. This versatility allows it to handle a wide range of workpiece geometries.
- CNC Control (Optional): MA1420 Universal cylindrical grinder. Some models of universal cylindrical grinders, including the MA1420, may offer optional CNC control systems. CNC control allows for precise and automated grinding operations, providing high accuracy and repeatability.
- Workpiece Holding: The machine is equipped with a workpiece holding mechanism, often involving chucks, collets, centers, or specialized fixtures, to securely hold the cylindrical workpiece in place during the grinding process.
- Grinding Wheel: The heart of the grinder is the grinding wheel, which rotates at high speeds and removes material from the workpiece’s external and internal surfaces. Various types and sizes of grinding wheels can be used, depending on the specific application.
- Wheelhead: The wheelhead is responsible for housing the grinding wheel and controlling its radial movement (in and out) to approach the workpiece. It also controls the feed rate and depth of cut.
- Swiveling Wheelhead (Optional): Some universal cylindrical grinders, like the MA1420, may feature a swiveling wheelhead that can be angled to accommodate tapered workpieces and perform complex grinding tasks.
