How does ROGRIND Head 1.0 improve ergonomics while grinding?
The entire machine has been designed with a view to ergonomics: The boom keeps the frame upright on the track and the operator can retain their natural posture for the entire grinding process.
Only the grinding unit is pivoted by means of a handwheel. Operation from both the left and the right side maintains an unrestricted view of the area of work which can be perfectly lit by optional LED lamps.
How do I use ROGRIND Head 1.0 for grinding?
An electric motor actuated by a programmable logic controller (PLC) places the grinding position and depth limit of the cup wheel down to tenths of millimetres. You will thus need a lot less strength and experience to obtain a perfect result.
How does finishing work?
Finishing is achieved by a method patented by Robel:
How does ROBEL's patented contour copying device work?
A guiding mechanism forces the rail guiding discs to turn with the pivoting grinding unit. This stops the machine from slipping while maintaining a constant grindstone contact pressure and creating a true copy of the rail head and its profile over a pivoting range of 184°.
