Schütte’s 325linear machine, a five-axis CNC grinder with extended X- and Y-axis movement plus two auxiliary slides for workpiece clamping and improved grinding wheel guidance over the entire machining envelope. Micro tools, gun drills, hob cutters and complex geometries can be accommodated on this new machine, which typically operates in the range of 2,500 to 4,000 rpm. The additional second auxiliary slide enables the 325linear to utilize tool guidance, part support, tailstock or workpiece pallets in operation. This machine further expands the user’s automation possibilities, as it also offers significant advancements in wheel change and robotic workpiece handling.  

Specifically, on the a-axis, a user can install collet chucks, hydraulic expansion chucks or multi-range chucks.  With the automated collet changer on the machine, workpieces with different diameters can be clamped with high concentricity in the unmanned loader station.  The Schütte a-axis configuration on this machine also permits position-oriented clamping of non-rotationally symmetrical workpieces.  In this way, sequential workpieces with various roughing and finishing requirements can be preset on the machine for continuous processing.
