Supertec Machinery Introduces The Mini Genie CNC Cylindrical Grinder To The US Market


For Immediate Release

Supertec Machinery (Paramount CA) is proud to introduce the Mini Genie CNC Cylindrical Grinder to the North American market

The Mini Genie is designed for shops with limited floor space in mind. With a total footprint of only 78” x 78” (43 sq. ft.) and its high precision performance this grinder is ideal for any shop.

The Mini Genie has a grinding capacity of 9” diameter, and 8” between centers and a work load capacity of 44 lb. between centers and 11 lbs. chucked. The wheelhead utilizes a NN contact taper needle roller bearing spindle with a 20” x 2” grinding wheel and 10 hp. spindle motor which allows for greater stock removal resulting in reduced cycle times. A wide range of materials like cast iron, Inconel, Carbide and chrome can be ground on the Mini Genie. The workhead (MT3 with MT4 optional) has a NN contact taper needle roller bearing spindle with a servo motor drive for maximum torque. The workhead has infinitely programmable spindle speeds from 0 ~ 600 rpm.

With the Mitsubishi M80 control and Supertec’s I-Grind conversational shop floor language the grinder is easy to learn and easy to program making it ideal for any shop. The graphic display screen allows the operator to review the part program prior to grinding and make any required adjustments. The Mitsubishi M80 (and optional Fanuc Oi-TF) control can be interfaced to a variety of measurement systems such as touch probes and automatic sizing devises as well as robotic and gantry style automatic loading systems.

The Mini Gene comes in two styles, a plunge model with the wheelhead set at 90 degrees and the anglehead model with the wheehead set at 20 degrees. The anglehead is ideal for faster stock removal and a better surface finish on face and shoulder grinding applications. A Heidenhain .000002” linear scale is used for improved accuracy and repeatability with machine tolerances of .0001” or better attainable. Both machine axes utilize linear guideways for a smoother more accurate movement.

Some of the standard features of the Mini Genie include a full enclosure, infinitely variable workhead, coolant system with paper filter and magnetic separator, and a taper adjustable tailstock.
