GS:TEM-Mini_Thread Grinder


INTRODUCING…
Drake GS:TEM-Mini Thread Grinder

Ideal for grinding taps and other small cutting tools
With a work envelope of just 100mm x100mm, Drake’s new GS:TEM-MINI Thread Grinder is aimed at higher volume, precision threaded parts manufacturers in the cutting tool, automotive, aerospace and medical equipment industries.

A recently shipped “MINI” with a Drake fast-cycling autoloader was configured to grind M0.8 – 0.25 taps for threading holes in cell phone circuit boards.

  • surgical bone screws

…the GS:TEM-MINI deserves a look.


Automatic Magazine Loader System

The automatic rocker style magazine loader is integrated with the CNC system. Drake includes auto load magazines for any two part numbers.
