As part of our commitment to bringing you a reduction in cost per part, we can also offer an innovative benchmarking process known as the Grinding Knowledge System (GKS). This unique system, developed by abrasives specialists CGW, is used by Hard Metal to help us find the best products to use and the most efficient machining parameters to get the most cost-effective results.
How does it work?
The GKS is a simple yet powerful tool that measures the power consumption in the wheelhead motor of a production grinding machine. This gives valuable information as to how the grinding cycle is behaving. The GKS can also measure wheelhead and table displacement, providing even more information on the grinding process.
Benefits of the system include:
- Cycle Time Reduction
- Lower Wheel Consumption
- Wheel Optimization
- Accurate revision of Dressing process
