BLOHM PROFIMAT MC Excels in Turbine Vane Production

MIAMISBURG, Ohio, September 10, 2020 – The BLOHM PROFIMAT MC high-performance heavy-duty traveling-column grinding center from UNITED GRINDING offers the capabilities modern production environments require for various industries and applications, such as turbine vanes for civilian and defense aircraft as well as for power generation, in a space-saving machine measuring only 94.488" (2,400 mm) wide. The 5-axis machine includes an automatic tool changer with up to 24 tools and offers multiple spindle configurations, including an optional horizontal spindle or a stationary or NC-swiveling vertical spindle.

With standard grinding wheel diameter capacities starting at 15.748" (400 mm), a double NC rotary table and an automatic loading system, the PROFIMAT MC is ideal for continuous path-controlled creep feed grinding. An optional tool changer, overhead dressing system and RazorTec® grinding-wheel cleaning system boost performance further, as does a wide range of accessories and special systems for workpiece clamping and handling. Wide guide spacings and anti-friction guideways on all machine axes ensure a rigid machine structure that minimizes vibration and reduces system maintenance.
