High Accuracy Grinding of Hard Materials Using a Hauser Jig Grinder with Robotic Automation - Insaco

Since 1947, Insaco has been synonymous with excellence in the development and production of high precision machined parts. As a custom fabricator of ceramic, glass, sapphire, and other hard materials, Insaco specializes in machining parts that often require tolerances measured in millionths of an inch, and wear properties that satisfy even the most demanding applications.

High Accuracy Grinding with Robotic Automation

Insaco’s Hauser Jig Grinder allows for the best accuracy of all our Jig Grinders due to the orbiting of high speed tools embodied within the system. The Hauser also features internal automated tool changing which allows for increased efficiency, and less manpower intervention.

We have combined the Hauser with a Robotic System using pallets (shown here) which can keep the system running unattended. To ensure the integrity of the finished pieces the system also features a web-based monitor that allows operators to track performance remotely 24/7, and respond only when needed.

The monitor system has now been added to other vertical machining centers to likewise increase shop efficiencies.
