Grinding and Turning take centre stage for RK International


RK International Machine Tools will focus attention on its extensive grinding machine portfolio and the recently introduced EUROPA eturn VS range of manual lathes at MACH 2022. In total seven machines will be on display with all but one under power.

Grinding machines shown come from its long-term supplying partners Robbi, Perfect, Delta, and Jainnher; covering all aspects of abrasive machining through universal grinding, surface grinding, vertical spindle rotary table grinding and centreless grinding. Those looking for manual turning will be able to see and discuss the EUROPA eturn VS range represented at MACH 2022 by the mid-range VS390 gap bed lathe.

There will be two machines on show from Robbi, these being the Robbi Omicron 1000R conventional universal grinder and the company’s latest development, the Robbi Omicron T7 PLC universal grinder. The Omicron1000R is the smallest in the R-series with a between centre distance of 1000mm (600mm available on the smallest R Series model).

The Perfect range of grinders will be represented by the new PFG-3060DT, a new to market range of touchscreen controlled surface grinders. The easy to use control features multi-function grinding and dressing programs developed by Perfect to deliver optimum performance and grind quality. The Perfect PFG-400R rotary table surface grinder is representing the company’s R series of horizontal spindle, rotary table models.

Representing the Delta range will be the LC500 vertical spindle, rotary table surface grinder. The LC500 can grind up to 500 mm diameter and up to 205 mm in height. While a manual machine as standard the LC500 can be equipped with Delta’s L11E automation system Centreless grinding is represented by the Jainnher JHC12S machine. This machine allows through-feed and plunge grinding of components measuring up to 40mm diameter while holding micron level accuracies. Completing the display is the brand new EUROPA eturn VS390 manual lathe with a 390 mm swing over the bed (610 in the gap).

The range also features eturn Energy Management Technology (EEMT), which helps reduce energy consumption, particularly at times when the machine is stood idle by putting the lathe into sleep mode and switching off all unnecessary power consumption.
