SmartForm™ Technology and Diamond Roll Truing.
A 115mm diameter CNC controlled diamond roll contour dresser, mounted behind the wheel, automatically generates wheel forms for correcting helical path interference and off-helix grinding.

SmartSpindle™Acoustic emissions monitoring allows fully automated balancing, touch dressing, and part feature locating.

The total system is pre-tested at our plant on your parts. Then it's proved out for you and prepped for start-up.
