SmartForm™ Technology and Diamond Roll Truing.
A 115mm diameter CNC controlled diamond roll contour dresser, mounted behind the wheel, automatically generates wheel forms for correcting helical path interference and off-helix grinding.
The total system is pre-tested at our plant on your parts. Then it’s proved out for you and prepped for start-up.

Drake GS:TE 2-Meter grinders are equipped with a Fanuc A.C. variable frequency spindle drive control and precision balanced 7.5 kW motor.
The spindle drive is configured for constant surface speed operation over the entire wheel size range.
