Basic Machine Options
TG-12x4 Thrufeed Grinder
The TG-12x4 Thrufeed Grinder is originally manufactured with tough metalworking applications in mind. Its 6 bearing main spindle and twin grip regulating wheel housing make for a rigid design capable of grinding to under a micron tolerance for many years.
Standard equipment is a sizing dial and using the .0001" dial indicator you make size changes on your thrufeed application. Manual infeed grinding can be done also by using the infeed lever. This machine comes standard with permanently mounted dressers and a servo driven regulating wheel drive. This machine is still very popular with grinding of carbide, ceramics and other thrufeed applications. The tolerance capabilities of under .0001" for a basic centerless grinder make it attractive to many companies. This machine is capable of grinding anything from fine wires to titanium bars up to 5m long.
With the addition of our many accessories this machine is very versatile and can handle both manual Infeed, and thrufeed applications from .001" to 1.5" in diameter. For a more comprehensive look at our accessories available and the construction of the machine, click here.
TG-12x4 Autocycle Machine
The TG-12x4 Autocycle machine, based on our Standard TG-12x4 centerless grinder with a 12" diameter grinding wheel, is perfect for the infeed applications that have a +/-.00004" tolerance. This air over hydraulic machine was once the staple of many shops. The autocycle unit makes for repeatable infeed cycles while making millions of cycles per year a consistent reality. We recently took a machine back from a prominent European company for rebuilding that had 23 million infeed cycles over a 12 year period. The machine has different options including a microsize option and glass scale for holding .000040" repeatability.
With the addition of our many accessories this machine is very versatile and can handle both Infeed, thrufeed, plunge and run applications from .001" to 1.5" in diameter. For a more comprehensive look at our accessories available and the construction of the machine click here
