Jones and Shipman has introduced their new Suprema 1000M cylindrical grinding machine with productivity enhancements not found in their current 1000mm machine. Jones and Shipman’s “self teach” easy touch screen has been upgraded to a Fanuc Power motion. New features include online storage for all dressing and grind programs, USB connectivity, improved reaction times and a color touch screen to further improve programming and set up time.
Larger wheel diameters provide longer wheel life and increased productivity by reducing the number of dresses required in the grinding cycles. The Suprema 1000M has a robust, swiveling wheel head with a left and right external wheel. The left-hand wheel is 400 x 50mm, while the right hand wheel is 350 x 50mm. A belt-driven internal grinding system is ready to accept an optional internal spindle.
