Drake Manufacturing's line of GS:VTM(Grinding System: Vertical) grinders provides increased versatility and precision, higher grinding speeds, and the capability of using advanced abrasives to maximize throughput and reduce the cost per part. The GS:V is based on established vertical designs with several improvements. The vertical grinding spindle is fixed at 90 degrees, which increases grinding rigidity and simplifies set-ups. The unit provides greater versatility than the traditional manually adjusted pivoting head. Angles and forms are dressed into the wheel using built-in Part SmartTM dressing routines performed by the standard CNC-controlled contour diamond wheel dressing system, which allows for angles and forms to be dressed and ground quickly and precisely.
