The UPZ-Li Series Form Grinder is specifically designed for ultra-high tolerance grinding of tough-to-grind materials. It has the performance features and precision needed in demanding industries such as electronics, form tool, fiber optics and more.
The UPZ-Li features solid ultra-rigid T-Shape base design and construction. The extra-large, heavy-duty column assembly assures the rigidity and vibration damping need for critical high-tolerance grinding applications. Zero table overhang eliminates accuracy robbing deflection. A specially designed oil-cooled spindle head assembly minimizes thermal expansion. Standard 3-axes scale feedback simplifies positioning and assures consistent high accuracy grinding.
The UPZ-Li's linear motor table drive delivers fast, accurate table positioning and high-speed table reciprocation of 500 strokes/min @ 10mm (0.3937") stroke. Stopping accuracy is an astounding 1μ (0.000039"). High accuracy positioning also enables in process measuring. The UPZ-Li is ideal for multiple work fixturing. A high productivity shift-plunge cycle dramatically cuts grinding cycle times. High-speed contour grinding is available. Control is provided through powerful, easy-to-use Okamoto proprietary software. Simple touch screen data input and the available I-cam software's ability to automatically convert DXF files into grinding data simplifies operation even by inexperienced operators.
Some of the many standard features include a Grinding Wheel and Adaptor, 3-Point Table Mounted Dresser, Oil Cooled Spindle head, 3-Axes Closed Loop Feedback System and more. Available options include a variety of Coolant Systems, Electro-Magnetic Chucks, On-Machine Profile Measuring System with CCD Camera, Combination 2-Point Rotary Dresser/Single Point Dresser and more.
