Glebar: Centerless Grinding Technology

December 11, 2000
A new technology for machining tungsten carbide rods has been introduced by Glebar, Inc. According to the company, its new centerless grinding system provides greater accuracy, eliminates breakage and is 4-5 times faster than the conventional lathe method. The system reportedly permits manufacturers to grind tungsten carbide rods in their green state to an accuracy of one-thousandth of an inch. This is made possible, according to the company, because the system can plunge an entire 8-in. tungsten rod against the grinding wheel in a single motion.
