At IMTS 2018, Drake will introduce its newest machine tool, the GS:DS Dual Spindle Grinder, further expanding Drake's premium line of thread grinders and milling machines. The Dual Spindle machine, complete with automation, will be demonstrated throughout the week.
The GS:DS combines the grinding capabilities of two machines into one. Depending on application, the machine can be equipped with two external grind spindles, two internal grind spindles, or one of each. This not only eliminates changeover, but also reduces takt time while maintaining tight tolerances.
A Programmable B-axis allows for the wheel to grind both straight and taper sections in one set-up providing excellent concentricity.
There will be technical presentations offered throughout the show on thread grinding and latest Drake Technologies.
