Nathan: Could you tell us a little bit more of the key advantages of your company in the CNC grinding market?
Maria Chen: We have very good quality and also very good performance on the CNC machines and not only the functions, but also the performance, since we have got very long term cooperation with a Japanese company and also an outsourcing research company.
Nathan: Could you tell us a little bit more of some of the machines you have on display?
Maria Chen: This time we have got the newly developed machines, this one here is the JL-818. This machine is equipped with a linear motor and this time the crossfeed and vertical axis are controlled by servo motors and longitudinal with linear motors. It can speed up to 60m/min and we are able to meet the same performance as hydraulic systems, it is very suitable for punch grinding.
Our second machine is a CNC machine that is specially designed for grinding linear guideways. The X-axis is driven by a ballscrew and linear guide, to meet high performance for example, the formatters in parallel are read in 3 micrometers. The machine is equipped with three spindles, two vertical spindles and one horizontal spindle. So you can grind three sides at one time to get a very good performance.
We are trying to do the best, if there is any further information you need, please contact us.
