L'evoluzione della specie

Lynx crank and cam grinders line provides a completely new, simple and flexible solution for grinding crankshafts and camshafts with a single machine. Grinding main journals, crank pins or thrust faces is achieved simply without an eccentric chuck. Both concave and convex cam contours are obtained in a single clamping, without the use of cam masters simply by using the Lynx software that controls path machining of the contours.

Safety Features
Safe operation is ensured by

  • Touch detector for continuous monitoring of the contact between grinding wheel and workpiece, grinding wheel and dressing device results in minimal non-cutting times. The device works also as Integrated collision detection system.
  • The wheel spindle drive motor control incorporates a load meter so that if the pre-set limits are passed, an overcurrent condition will initiate an emergency stop.
  • Two front sliding doors for full enclosure of the working area during machine grinding operation.
  • During loading/unloading of the workpiece (front doors are open), two fences/panels automatically separate the working area from the wheelhead (that slides all the way back along the X axis) and the operator is fully protected even with the grinding wheel rotating.
  • Lynx2000 has been built according with the CE norms and EMC directives regulating manufacture of machine tools.
  • All safety features have been arranged in such a way as not to hinder the ergonomy of the machine and the production of the operator.
