RGA Series Lathe Attachment Rubber Roll Grinders

Advanced Grinding Attachments suitable for retrofitting to existing lathes.

The RGA Series provides an edge over the competition by enabling customers to accurately grind rolls, (including cambered profiles) using existing equipment.

RGA Series Grinding Attachments

HNC’s range of Advanced Roll Grinding attachments turn a standard manual lathe into a rubber roll grinding machine. The Grinding Attachment enables the user to grind parallel and even cambered rolls (GA2) on a manual lathe.

The GA Series attachments make a highly cost effective addition to larger lathes. The attachments give the customer the ability to grind large rolls without the capital outlay of a large roll grinder.

GA1
For the grinding of parallel rolls.

This comprises of a grinding spindle (high speed or large vitrified wheel options) controlled via a variable speed drive mounted on a bracket which in turn is mounted on the lathes cross slide.
The control station comprises of a simple wheel start / stop and emergency stop. For health and Safety reasons The GA1 needs to be integrated to the machine emergency stop circuit.

GA2
For the grinding of a range of roll profiles

This comprises of a grinding spindle (high speed or large vitrified wheel options) controlled via a variable speed drive mounted PLC controlled linear axis (X2-Axis), which in turn is mounted on the lathes cross slide.
In addition to this a measuring system is fitted to the lathes Z-Axis to enable the PLC to move the X-axis in relationship to the Z-axis, enabling the machine to produce a number of industry standard profiles.
