STC-300 Superabrasive Turning Center
The STC-300 is equipped with a cam type auto-loader, which makes it an excellent platform for high volume automotive powdered metal applications such as grooving drive sprockets and slotting synchronous rings. It is also ideal for heavy material removal applications, particularly from barstock.
The three axes (X/Z/C) STC-300 utilizes a substantial high tensile Meehanite base to provide superior rigidity and vibration dampening for efficient high speed superabrasive machining. The STC-300 has been designed for operator and maintenance efficiency.
The linear guide ways have no contact with the grinding swarf which drops to the bottom of the machine for transfer to the sump. The grinding wheel is easily accessible enabling safe, simple wheel changes and the spindle belt can be changed from a convenient access panel on the side of the machine. The STC-300 is an efficient 99 sq. ft. footprint yielding tremendous productivity per square foot of floor space.
Using a standard 50 HP, 12,000 RPM belt driven grinding spindle and a 10" hydraulic three jaw chuck with a 3,500 RPM, 11HP work spindle motor, the STC-300 is capable of heavy material removal. X axis feedback is provided by a Heidenhain scale and a Fanuc based touch screen operator panel with over-ride switches is standard.
