UNITED GRINDING to Present New Universal Cylindrical Grinder at IMTS 2018

MIAMISBURG, Ohio, August 30, 2018 – IMTS 2018 visitors to UNITED GRINDING in booth 236802 will have an in-person opportunity to experience the new STUDER favorit 1600 with a distance between centers of 1600 mm. The new STUDER favorit 1600 grinds both single-part and batch production, combining cost-effective price with high productivity. With a center distance of 63" and a 6.89" center height, the universal machine handles long workpieces weighing up to 330 lbs.

The STUDER favorit incorporates a full enclosure with an optimal view of the grinding process. A solid Granitan® base anchors the machine for maximum precision, performance and stability. The machine’s wheelhead, which can be positioned in 3° increments, houses a belt-driven external and internal grinding spindles. 

STUDER's grinding software with StuderPictogramming enables even less experienced users to program grinding and dressing cycles quickly and efficiently. Optional StuderGRIND software handles special applications such as profiling the grinding wheel for complex workpiece shapes.
