Republic Lagun CNC VGC-2418-SE High-abrasive Vertical Grinding Center and ancillary equipment for CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) CBN (Cubic Boron Nitrated) grinding. This Hi-abrasive grinder will grind unique materials such as Titanium and Inconel. This high-abrasive vertical grinding center can be used in High-Pressure Gas Turbine components such as used in jet engines, casings, shafts, blades, vanes & shrouds. It utilizes either Nickel Plated or VIT CBN wheels and Oil cutting fluids. The special configuration of our VGC-2418-SE also allows conventional machining capability. This flexibility gives you the convenience of grinding; milling, drilling, tapping, and boring on your parts in one set-up.
