MICRON

External grinding

Micron software for the management of the grinding and dressing cycles specially designed by Lizzini – Wallram Grindtec with customized video-graphic support.

Micron is an extremely flexible and powerful software, easy to use in the definition of work programs.

One of its many features is the video-graphic support to define the workpiece geometry and the technological data for grinding which represent a great help in the grinding process.

External grinding cycles with teach-in for:

  • Plunge
  • Multiplunge with synchronous oscillation (infeed at table inversion point) or asynchronous (continuos infeed)
  • Left and right shoulder
  • Left and right radius and/or chamfer
  • Taper in plunge or in oscillation

Dressing cycles with automatic wheel wear compensation for:

  • Straight wheel
  • Straight wheel with tapering on the right/left sides (independent geometry)
  • Straight wheel with tapering and plane surfaces on the right/left sides for grinding shoulder cycles (independent geometry)
  • Straight wheel with radius
  • Straight wheel with right/left free programmed chamfering.

Display and check of the geometrical setting of the grinding wheel in programming.

Programmable dressing cycles following N ground components or following the numbers of diameters to be ground or between roughing and finishing.

Two dressing speeds are at disposal for the grinding wheel (roughing, finishing).

Video-graphic support to define the wheel geometry and the technological data for dressing.

Intelligent management of the Air Gap used when acknowledging the position of the grinding wheel in relation to the workpiece.

Utilities

Possibility of modifying grinding cycles in progress.

Special sub-routine to directly correct the wheel position with 3 wheel corrections available (1 for X and 2 for Z).

Video page for the optimization of the grinding program: correction diameters, shoulders and cutting parameters.

Software control of the minimum wheel width and wheel diameter, with display signalling.

Invocation of dressing cycles through push-button with automatic return to the grinding program in progress at the end of the dressing operation.

Control of the software limit switch.

Display of cycle time, quantity of ground workpieces and components missing to the next dressing cycle.

Rapid retraction of the external or internal wheel from a pre-determined point by push button.

Internal grinding

Micron software for the management of the internal grinding cycles using the teach-in technique. Internal grinding cycles using the teach-in technique for:

  • Diameters
  • Left shoulder
  • Left radius and chamfers

Dressing mode:

  • Diameters
  • Left shoulder
  • Left radius and chamfers

3 dressing types that can be programmed depending on the respective diameters.

Video-graphic support for the wheel-definition geometry and the dressing technology.

Intelligent management of the Air Gap used when acknowledging the position of the grinding wheel in relation to the workpiece.

Utilities

Special sub-routine to correct the wheel position.

3 wheel corrections available: 1 for X Axis and 2 for Z Axis.

Video page for the optimization of the grinding program.

Software control of the minimum wheel width and wheel diameter, with display signalling.

Invocation of dressing cycles through push button with automatic return to the grinding program in progress at the end of dressing operation.

Rapid retraction of the external or internal grinding wheel from a predetermined point by pushing a button.
