Many SMART users in various industries, including the medical, automotive, mining, semiconductor, aerospace and job shops, have experienced a dramatic increase in reliability and productivity. The SMART-III Series is capable of producing "mirror" finishes on highly accurate workpieces, which produce micro finishes of 5 RMS or better. The positioning accuracy 0.004mm (0.00015") to 0.006mm (0.00023") and the repeatability is 0.003mm (0.00012") to 0.006mm (0.00023"). The SMART-III's movements are programmable in increments of 0.001mm (0.0001"). The SMART-III's PC-based control, combined with a user-friendly conversational function, makes it easy to learn and operate.
The spindle is supported by 4 pieces of class 7 (p4) super precision angular contact ball bearings and directly coupled with low vibration class v3 spindle motor. Air purged spindle available upon request.
Base and saddle
Specially designed one-piece T-shaped base casting offers superior rigidity.
Hand-scraped, Turcite-B Coated crossfeed guideways between base and saddle have double "V" design; provides support for full table travel and prevents table overhangs.
Hydraulic creep-feed function
Table longitudinal movement speed can be adjusted easily by tuming these two knobs. (H type standard).
Quick lock/unlock mechanism
Hydraulic cylinder can be disengaged very quickly for quick fixture alignment. (H type standard).
Headstock elevation accuracy is adjusted by gibs and designed with counterweight balance device to ensure the micro downfeed accuracy.
Double "V" ways for table and saddle
Hand-scraped, turcite-B coated longitudinal ways between table and saddle are of double "V" design, ideal for delicate side grinding operations.
