Grind Master has launched a new model CST600, using film backed abrasives for centreless superfinishing of cylindrical components. Centreless superfinishing is usually done with honing stones. Microfinishing films have several key benefits over stones, such as faster cycle times, user-friendliness, energy efficiency, reliability and consistency of results. The CST600 is launched with a tooled up solution for cylindrical pin type parts, such as crank pins, gudgeon pins etc. The technology will be further upgraded over the next few months to also process automotive suspension components and bearing rollers. Bearing superfinishing is a very high precision application. With the strong background in NANOFINISH, the company is confident to make an impact in this segment. The machine has several advanced features, such as modularity, automatic size adjustment and automation for load/unload. The company is a global technology leader in NANOFINISH range of products for between centre microfinishing and superfinishing with over 400 solutions delivered. The company is also specialised in providing centreless belt grinding and polishing machines.
