GROB Systems’ G550 5-Axis Universal Machining Center

The G550 is controlled by the powerful GROB4Pilot machine control panel, which offers a multi-functional user interface that provides machine operators with a convenient working environment.

GROB Systems, a developer of manufacturing systems and machine tools, has announced the availability of its new G550 5-axis Universal Machining Center, featuring a unique milling concept that guarantees the best milling technology and extremely stable and precise cutting of practically all materials.

The G550’s unique machine concept includes a horizontal spindle position that permits the longest possible Z-travel path and optimum chip fall. The arrangement of the three linear axes offers maximum stability by minimizing the distance between the guides and the machining point (TCP).

The G550’s tunnel concept allows the largest possible component to be swiveled and machined within the work area without collision – even with extremely long tools. Three linear and two rotary axes permit 5-sided machining, as well as 5-axis simultaneous interpolation, with a swivel range of 230 degrees in the A-axis and 360 degrees in the B-axis. 

The G550 is controlled by the powerful GROB4Pilot machine control panel, which offers a multi-functional user interface that provides machine operators with a convenient working environment. The entire production process is digitally mapped on the control panel, from the CAD model through to the NC simulation. 

The G550 is available with a variety of powerful tilting rotary table versions with the latest torque motor technology and optimized dynamics. Users can choose between models with T-slots arranged in parallel (standard) or optional pallet clamping system. 

A broad range of spindles are offered, ranging from 6,000 to 30,000 (rpm) and 47 to 575 (Nm). The GROB motorized spindle with cross-feed allows complex internal and external contours to be manufactured with controllable tools. It offers convincing system rigidity, high cutting speeds for machining contours, and low tool costs.

The GROB chip-in-spindle detection system (SiS) detects tool clamping faults, optimizing the machining process and avoiding damage. Additional single and double disk-type tool magazines are available for the G550, providing fast chip-to-chip times, a smaller space requirement and optimized accessibility. 

Available automation options include linear and rotary pallet storage systems as well as a pallet changer system. GROB software solutions are available to optimize and analyze the machine kinematics of the G550 and minimize deviations down to the finest detail.

When you’re installing new cam bearings in an LS engine block, the first four (from back to front of the engine) are usually no problem. That’s because the block helps keep the cam bearing installation tool centered in the bearing bores. But when it comes to the front cam bearing, there is nothing to keep the installation tool centered in the bore. That means the chances of that bearing going in cockeyed are pretty high.
