Arbomex CAM Grinder Design and Rebuild

Arbomex CAM Grinder Design and Rebuild

At I2T, we provide engineering services including design, programming, equipment deployment, and final system installation for automated industrial processes. Known for our abilities in molding hardware and software to reach your exact application needs, we help our customers upgrade cycle times, improve quality, and transform product precision.

We were recruited by an international customer seeking a full electrical and software upgrade of an existing piece of precision grinding equipment, used in making automotive camshafts. In this particular job PLC, CNC, and HMI software features and control methods were to be upgraded. Spanish language abilities in the software were also a key point of this project.

We had a lot of experience with previous versions of this particular type of grinder system, positioning us as the best integrator for upgrading the control system. We designed a user interface that was intuitive, customizable, and simple to follow, using the previous interface as a design foundation. All underlying control code was updated for better precision and cycle time. Connection hardware was changed out as needed, with custom development of a controller for the grinder’s spindle drive occurring on-the-fly during the project. The entire system was written to be bilingual, supporting Spanish and English.

The customer was very pleased with the final system product, which was installed on-site at their manufacturing facility in Mexico. They have already approached us about performing work like this in the future, understanding that we offer a unique combination of services and competencies for automated production processes.
