Studer is ‘Favorit’ for grinding at FT Gearing Featured

Aldershot-based FT Gearing Systems has developed a close working relationship with Swiss grinding machine manufacturer Studer and the company’s UK agent, Advanced Grinding Supplies. The successful use of the advanced CNC grinders and growth of the company has led to regular additional investments, resulting in FT Gearing Systems now having eight Studer CNC grinders.

The company’s most recently opened satellite unit is dedicated to the production of gear technology and precision components for Rolls-Royce aero engines. In addition to other advanced machine tools, the facility houses four Studer grinders, including FT Gearing’s recently purchased Studer Favorit model.

“We pursue a policy of using advanced Studer CNC grinding machines to achieve levels of accuracy and repeatability that conventional grinding machines are unable to compete with,” says managing director Graham Fitzgerald. “For instance, we are able to attain sub-micron total cylindricity on 35 mm diameter gear journals with 0.08 µm surface finish, and achieve gear flatness to three light bands.

“As our existing Studer grinders have delivered excellent levels of precision, surface finish and reliability, when the need arose for additional, premium quality grinding capacity, Studer remained our first choice,” he adds. “With the help of Peter Harding, the owner Advanced Grinding Supplies, we specified the Favorit CNC universal cylindrical grinding machine to match our challenging requirements. Now in regular use, our new Studer grinder is now producing high volumes of work to demanding quality standards.”
