The R/152 5000x1000 CNC is a heavy duty cylindrical grinding machine for the machining of outside diameters and faces; it is a machine derived from a catalogue model although it stands out for remarkable innovations.
The machine is composed by two beds, the wheel bed and the workpiece bed.
The first mirrors already existing machine models, even if the structure was enlarged to account for the diameters to grind which range 100 to 2000 mm.
For this purpose the spacing between the wheel carriage guideways has been increased to grant the support of the wheel slide over the entire cross travel.
Besides, in this application, a rotary B Axis of the wheelhead was specified, with a consequent increase of the weight of the whole carriage.
