GRINDING DEPARTMENT

Our grinding department consists of several manual machines, including cylindrical, internal, and surface grinders.

 

Highlights:

  • We have recently added a Studer CNC grinding center, with its own climate-controlled cleanroom
  • We use the CNC grinder to grind all the tapered shanks we manufacture from scratch
  • Blanks are not used for ETW-manufactured tooling whenever possible
  • The most popular taper shanks manufactured include the HSK system, and the SK or CAT system
  • All of these shanks are gaged using hard-gaging and kept within a 2 micron tolerance on all critical gage diameters

ETW WAS INCLUDED IN A CASE STUDY WHICH WAS FEATURED IN "MODERN MECHANICS MACHINE SHOP" MAGAZINE.
