Harnessing a 75 kW grinder
An important German foundry turned again to Clansman Dynamics for a solution that would improve productivity in their casting fettling department. Our 6-axis grinding manipulator provided twice the usable torque compared to their existing machine and the ability to use larger and, importantly, longer grinding tools. This paper describes the technical difficulty encountered; the design problems in achieving a solution for improving the life of the grinding tooling and the lessons learned in the painful task of innovation under severe pressure.
