Together with different partners we will present the latest programming and machining strategies for complex components and difficult-to-machine materials. Join us each month to discover new ideas to grow your business and your machining capabilities in these special web events hosted by GROB Systems. These special web events will last approximately one hour with time for live Q&As at the end.

 

We look forward to connecting with you!

Upcoming GROB-Webinars
Machining Difficult IBR/Blisk Geometries with Ease

Thursday, Aug 27, 2020 at 2:00 PM EST

 

This workshop presents a collaboration of GROB Systems, OPEN MIND Technologies and YG-1 Tool Company for the demonstration of advanced IBR / blisk machining. 

  • Aero-engine rotating components provide challenges due to cutting titanium or other high-temperature alloys and have complex geometries with high quality requirements.
  • Innovative machining processes include 3-axis simultaneous turning to prepare the blank, high performance roughing to efficiently remove material between blades, and blade finishing techniques with conical barrel cutters that achieve a high surface finish with large step-over.
  • The co-hosts will discuss their technical contributions and present the machining of a 450 mm diameter IBR / blisk.
  • YG-1 will provide tooling for hard-to-machine metals.
  • OPEN MIND (hyperMILL® CAM software) tool paths and an integrated postprocessor for both turning and milling will be utilized. 
  • And GROB’s G350T 5-axis mill-turn machine solution will implement the tooling and software to give exacting control for the challenging aerospace geometries.

Join us for a special webinar event where Nick Honeycutt, owner of Honeycutt Manufacturing, LLC., will give you an inside look into how he was able to significantly increase his business by adding 5-axis machines to his floor.

 

Virtual 5-Axis Workshop

Heidenhain, Fraisa, OPEN MIND, & GROB

 

Learn how to take advantage of the latest development in CNC controls, CAM technology and cutting tool selection helping you to master the process chain the most efficient way. This workshop will demonstrate how to save up to 90% on your finishing cuts — while maintaining the desired surface quality. We will explain in engaging presentations and live machine demonstrations how you can improve your manufacturing process by optimizing your process change from CAD-model to finish part down to lot size one. Innovations in CAM-strategies from hyperMILL® MAXX Machining and the innovative barrel cutters from Fraisa will be demonstrated on a GROB G352 5-axis machining center with the latest CNC and motion control from HEIDENHAIN.

Power Skiving with Cutting-Edge Technology

SECO Tools 

Join us for a special webinar event where GROB machines are paired with SECO tools to make Power Skiving with Cutting-Edge Technology effortless.

 

Machining an Airfoil in One Setup

Join us for a special webinar event where a GROB G350 universal machining center machines an airfoil in one setup from titanium bar stock. During the webinar, watch Seco Tools’ barrel cutters reduce cycle time while increasing surface finish and accuracy. Using Open Mind hyperMILL CAM software, we can maximize chip removal on a curved surface by allowing exact control of the optimal cutting surface of the barrel cutter. The results bring shorter cycle times, no ball end mill usage and tighter tolerance.

About us

GROB's one-of-a-kind design of HMC + swivel-rotary table is ideal for companies pursuing jobs in aerospace, die/mold, medical, and automotive sectors. The unique retractable spindle virtually eliminates the change for collisions during tool change, while maximizing the usable work area. This means GROB owners can usually buy one size smaller to reduce their investment, or have room to grow with new and larger part families. With these capabilities and GROB's accuracy and reliability, you can shorten production times, take on new jobs, and increase revenue.

Elevate your machining capabilities with these features:

 

  • Better access to more part features, including negative angles
  • Easy and complete chip removal when table is inverted
  • Your choice of several popular CNC control platforms
  • Many options included as standard
  • USA manufacturing, service & support (Bluffton, OH)

What our customers say


"We had never seen a machine configured like this, and we were excited to see how the swiveling and rotating capabilities were combined in the table."


“We like the unique configuration of the spindle versus the worktable as the spindle comes in horizontally ... You can machine unique cutting geometries and hard to reach areas. The configuration is also good for chip control.”


"You’re dealing with factory direct parts [GROB manufactures machine tools at its Bluffton, OH, plant] and technicians that are very knowledgeable and that was a big appeal for us.”


“If we have a problem that we’re trouble shooting, I can call GROB. They can log right into our machine, which is something that we’ve never had on any machine before, and they’ll trouble shoot for us. It really is a partnership with GROB.”
