Automated Guidewire Grinding

The TF-9D micro grinder

By integrating automation into its micro grinder, Glebar, Ramsey, NJ, has created a solution that enables manufacturers of single-taper guidewires to reduce setup times, increase throughput, and maintain tighter tolerances. The TF-9D automated centerless thrufeed/infeed micro grinder can be paired with the GFS, a standalone automatic feeding system, which automatically picks wires from a bin, loads them into the micro grinder, and unloads finished parts. The micro grinder uses an 8-5/8-in. wide work wheel that enables manufacturers to grind longer tapers during each pass. Once in production, it grinds shapes up to 7.8 in. per cycle. Upper and lower slides can be adjusted independently to 0.1 μm resolution using a touchscreen HMI.
