Trade Show Recap

Ohio’s Ceramics Expo was a huge success for Stahli USA not only because we showcased the only flat honing, lapping, and polishing machine on the floor, but because the FH 602 was the first 1-Side Flat Honing Machine with Size Control & Driven Head. Its game-changing technology for precision flat honing of ceramics, glass and virtually any other extremely hard material redefines what is possible. Thank you to all who stopped by to see FH 602 Manual Load 1-Side Machine first hand.

Stahli introduces the new FH 602 Manual Load 1-Side Machine

The first 1-Side Flat Honing Machine with Size Control & Driven Head. Increased quantities and series production with rapid stock removal require more performance. Our FH 602 machine is dedicated to high productivity, user-friendliness, economic efficiency, precision and safety. Flat Honing with diamond or CBN-wheels opt for a future in super finishing with a newly developed machine from the STAHLI Group. Our single-side Flat Honing Machine with process control and size measuring system as well as loading and unloading tables meet thus requirements.

Stahli expands Deburring Capabilities

Customized for application-specific abrasive filament brushes, Tri-Ten Series accepts precision ground parts, in carriers, directly from grinding, lapping, or honing machine. As magnetized belt grips parts in the carrier, they are presented to planetary head, where three 10 in. abrasive filament brushes deburr upward-facing surface. Edge break, surface finish, and material removal are accurately controlled. Brushes may be specified with silicon carbide, aluminum oxide, ceramic, or diamond filaments.

Stahli USA adds Brush Deburring to the Lake Zurich lab

Deburring4Flat honing or fine grinding can generate a small burr in some materials. In order to offer the complete solution to our valued customers, Stahli USA has installed a brush deburr unit in our Lake Zurich laboratory.

Our deburring program includes the following features:

  • In-line integration with Stahli USA machines
  • Integration with existing coolant filtration systems
  • Matched production rates with flat honing or fine grinding machines
  • Combined grinding wheel and deburr trials in one location
  • Complete process development capabilities
  • In combination with flat honing, brush deburring can generate lower roughness values (Ra, Rz)

Please contact us regarding your deburring requirements and we will be happy to perform trials as well as quote deburring systems.

Stahli USA develops super abrasive wheels for tight surface finish and reduced sub-surface damage

Stahli USA continues the development of fixed abrasive/ super abrasive wheel solutions in fine grinding and flat honing machining applications. Which in turn, now includes the ability to generate polished surfaces on many materials using fixed abrasive wheels. While this capability is now easily achieved, increase productivity by a process that we can customize to your needs.  The days of having to fight flatness, surface finish, and consistency within a load ends today!

Our Research and Development team is working with wheels in various bonds and grit sizes to 8000 mesh.

For example, applications include:

  • J-polish on carbide
  • Improved pre-polish characteristics (surface finish and sub-surface damage) on various materials
  • Controlled and repeatable surface finish specifications that go beyond the typical Ra, Rmax, and Rz designations
  • Replacement of loose diamond applications and improving cleanliness and consistency
