Chevalier’s FSG Series Double-Column Fixed Beam Grinder

Chevalier’s FSG Series Double-Column Fixed Beam Grinder

Easy To Set-up, Program And Operate; Exceeds The Most Rigirous Demands.

Chevalier customers in a wide range of industries like what they see in the FSG-4080DC series double-column fixed beam grinders. They say the grinders are easy to set-up, program and operate and exceed the most rigorous demands for rigidity, accuracy and speed. All while providing an enormous grinding area.

“With the options in the market within our target group of machines, the Chevalier FSG series stood out as the choice product,” said Brian Young, general manager of Erie Precision Grinding in Pennsylvania. “It provides an easy to use interface, full CNC control system, total workpiece capacity and the rigidity and accuracy of the dual column design.” Young said his high expectations for the FSG Series has been meet.

“Now that we have completed a number of workpieces, I am truly impressed by its performance,” he added. “By meeting my expectations, it has exceeded what I thought was possible over such a large platform.  The operator interface, intuitive programming and speed are all working together to provide an exceptional piece of equipment capable of servicing our customers effectively and efficiently.

The user-friendly conversational programming features:
•    Smart-III CNC PC based control and Microsoft Win CE platform
•    Patented designed table stroke can be adjusted from screen
•    Conversational graphic program for grinding and dressing
•    Standard can cycles: step surface, slice and crisscross cycles
•    Switch between manual, semi-automatic, fully automatic or CNC
•    Automatic wheel dressing can be done while machining or at the end of a cycle
•    Simplified data transfer using Ethernet/intranet data saving and transfer, USB port and CF card port
•    Grinding simulation mode executable through MPG and variable pitch/depth slicing capability

FSG Series Double Column Grinders have large-capacity table size, starting at 40" x 60", with a part load of up to 17,600 lbs.

Chevalier’s patented elevation guideways and spindle structure have four heavy-duty square slideways that provide maximum rigidity and heavy-duty grinding capacity. The spindle head on the Y-axis runs on four hardened, ground and wider guides traveling on Turcite-B anti-friction material. A worm gear reducer and servo motor coupled with a
high-accuracy ballscrew and a pneumatic counterweight balance system ensures smooth movement and prevents the head from crashing in case of a power failure.

A high-precision, cartridge-type spindle is equipped with four Class 7 (P4) angular contact ball bearings and a set of NN- type, precision-needle roller bearings.

Special grease suitable for high-speed rotation comes loaded, with no additional lubrication required. The cartridge ID is grooved to accommodate an optional oil-cooling device to minimize heat displacement.

Chevalier’s base and table design features Meehanite cast iron throughout. The table X-axis is coated with Turcite-B and travels on the hardened and grounded double “V” base guideway for years of smooth, stick-slip-free precision movement. A hydraulic cylinder drives the table, providing very smooth movement even under heavy loads. Chevalier’s customized and computerized controls allow the machine to precisely execute concave and convex grinding.
