At IMTS 2016, the Landis-Bryant RU2 Fuel MGMT will be introduced by FIVES GROUP. It is a high-precision grinding system that incorporates a modular, multi-surface grinder with extended flexibility to grind most complex components for fuel systems, valve and drive trains, bearings, aerospace and medical applications.
The Landis-Bryant RU2 was designed specifically for the challenging requirements of fuel system components that require tight control over related features: It employs a dual-slide arrangement in Z that can accommodate up to six grinding spindles. Fives will demonstrate the four-spindle model with a coolant through 90,000 rpm, ID spindle, and multiple dressing options.
Landis-Bryant RU2 grinders offer multi-slide possibilities in both the X and Z axis with multiple work heads, wheel heads, and dressing systems that make the machine ideal for process operations such as bore, seat, and face. Its granite epoxy bed includes a thermal stability system to monitor the temperature, and together with the optional adaptive thermal compensation, provides ultimate thermal stability.
A stiff hydrostatic round-bar guideway system is able to achieve precise location of all axes, resulting in exceptional dimensional and geometric accuracy, due to high-resolution Heidenhain glass scales and Fanuc linear motors. Modular design enables flexibility and allows customers to choose from multiple sizes, a tremendous range of machine configurations of work spindles, grinding spindles, dressing spindles, slides, tooling and fixtures and the ability to handle parts up to 14 in (350 mm) in diameter and 7 in (177 mm) in length.
