Jena Tec WBSVH Grinding Attachment for Vertical Lathes & Turning Machines

Adaption of a vertical turret lathe or turning centre into having a grinding capability couldn't be easier with the use of a Jena Tec WBSVH grinding head. Jena Tec design and manufacture the B&T WBSVH range to be customised to provide a range of extension lengths with 1.5 or 3HP versions at speeds of up to 6000RPM. The WBSVH motorised grinding spindle range is ideally suited to retrofit or periodic use as a grinding attachment for vertical lathes. The unit can be easily fitted by directly mounting onto a tool post turret position or by a suitable adaptor plate to allow the operator to remove when not required. Jena Tec also provide its range of CT portable inverters to allow speed control and constant torque through a suitable drive system supplied with cubicle and customer specified length of armoured cabling. The robust Jena Tec WBSVH spindle has a rugged cast iron body and durable AC motor. The extension sleeve is made from excellent quality steel and the entire unit is finished in a 2 pack epoxy paint coat to a high standard. Irrespective of extension sleeve length, the wheel location taper is ground accurately to within a few microns runout providing customers with the assurance of a high quality accurate grinding process. The Jena Tec WBSVH range is particularly suitable for grinding of honeycomb in aerospace, grinding of abradeable coatings, ceramics, hard facing, stellite coating and can be adapted to a wide range of vertical machining centres including Webster & Bennett. for further information go to or contact Jena Tec on +44(0)1623 726010 or by email at .
