The fusion of mechanical, electrical and software engineering.
The roll grinding machine has different structure comparing with that of cylindrical grinding machine. First of all, the cylindrical grinding machine grind straight with maintaining the high concentricity , roundness and straightness of workpiece. But roll has special profile along the roll length direction generally.
You can grind shaped roll with cylindrical grinding machine with interpolate X-axis and Z-axis like CNC lathe cutting, but, you can find step and feed mark on the ground surface. The roll grinding machine has special U-axis(tilting axis lifting wheel spindle up and down), it makes shape of roll. The shaped wheel dressing is need for shaped roll grinding to eliminate the interference of wheel and roll. This grinding software package supports not only new roll but also repairing roll.
HMI for interactive programming, CNC grinding cycle program, and PLC program are integrated in this program package together.
