Rotary Transfer Grinder (RTG)

Rotary Transfer Grinder (RTG)

The Rotary Transfer Grinder (RTG) is a high production  grinding machine with multiple grinding stations capable of grinding multiple grinding applications simultaneously. In the automotive industry, RTG-A produces automotive camshafts, struts, levers, gears, shafts, sprockets and rotors. In the cutting tool industry, RTG-T produces step drills, end mills, reamers, drills and taps. In the medical industry, RTG-M produces medical drills, burs and reamers.

With its flexible axis arrangement (up to 21 axis), the RTG will be able to grind virtually any form. The workstations can be designed and arranged in a variety of combinations depending on your application. What makes this a production machine for your part is that the total production time is equal to the longest single operation plus transfer time (4 seconds).

Tool Grinding in 2016: FORM GRINDER (FPG):

Form Grinder

Form Grinder

Form Grinders (FPGDesigned to form both ends of a part complete in one setup). In order to produce finished cutting tools you must begin with a prepared blank.  The challenge is to produce a machine for Carbide and HSS blank preparation that is both flexible and very productive. ITM’s Form Grinder is designed to grind the points and cutting diameters of tool blanks complete in one setup.  Two rigid synchronized spindles are mounted opposite each other onto high precision rails.  Clamping with two individual Chucks for grinding both part ends in one set-up, or clamping with Chuck & Center.
