Introduction This manual is written for the operator of the Universal Spiral Grinding Device UFS 155. The manufacturer is not responsible for damages that may occur due to non compliance with this manual. The manufacturer is continuously improving the UFS 155. It is therefore possible that this manual may not be totally complete. Please contact the manufacturer if further assistance is necessary. All technical specifications are subject to change without notice.



The only cleaning required are the surfaces of the grinding device. Simply wipe off with brush or rag, use oil if necessary. Warning: Do not use compressed air to clean. Beware of dangerous chemical solution not suitable to apply to metal and high precision instruments.


the spiral grinding

device on a tool & cutter grinder

The fIxture can be mounted on any conventional tool and cutter grinder. The grinding wheel spindle must be adjustable for height. The grinding machine table must be adjustable in length and must be secured with positive stops on each end. The table should also be secured from tilting sideways. The most suitable machines are the ones fItted with a cross roller table. Usable machines: Cincinnati - KO.Lee - Hybco - Seneca Falls - Saacke UW I-II - Schuette - Deckel - Jungner - Walter - and many others. The fIxture is mounted on the machine table using conventional bolts (2). Keys are used to align the fIxture with the machine. Using the swivel base plate (1) the fIxture can be swiveled 360 degrees, whereby the degrees can be read directly ofTthe scale (3) on the mounting plate (4). The swivel plate is locked into position with the nut (5) using a 22 rom wrench. The machine table must be locked axially to prevent tilting.

Electrical 1. 2.


The e1ectrical box is supplied by either 220V AC or 110V AC respectively - The fixture is hooked up to the 24V DC cable. The power on/off switch is located on top of the box indicated by a red light.. If the green light If the green light With the rotating numbers = more M 1 is on - the spiral magnet is activated. M 2 is on - the index magnet is activated. switch of the rheostat the pressure of the control roller is adjusted. Higher pressure for bigger tools, lower number = less pressure for smaller tools.


With the toggle switches on the side K5JK2 the microswitch (21) on the fIxture is activated. With the K5JK2 on "ON"the control roller (M1) and the index pin (M2) is switched in sequence with the micro switch (21). The timing of the index pin can be regulated with a time relay between 0.5 - 10 seconds. The relay is found in the electrical box. Also in this position the foot and hand switch do not operate. If K5JK2 is switched to "OFF' the control roller (M1) and the index pin (M2) can only be operated with the hand or foot switch. The receptacles 1\2 and K5 are for the hand or foot switch respectively. The function of the hand- or foot switch can be reversed with the toggle switch 1\2 and K5. The hand- or foot switch can be plugged into either receptacle.

Set up grinding wheel into the rake angle. The radial infeed during grinding is executed by generating a slippage between the control roller and the work spindle. The amount of slippage is adjustable with the rheostat at the electrical box. For larger diameter tools apply more pressure to the workpiece spindle and apply less for smaller tools. On a right spiral for example, the workpiece spindle (15) is turned to the right and back pressure is applied slightly. This procedure is generating a radial infeed. Start grinding from the index position. The strokes are counted e.g. 5 or 10 per tooth. In this manner every tooth is ground equally, starting from its index position. After all teeth have been ground according to that procedure, index the workpiece spindle (15). The acquired gap between tooth and grinding wheel is compensated radially with the micro adjustment (22). The cutter is now ground without slippage into the exact index.

Replace with the support for the taper attachment and swing fIXture back on the machine table. With the new support plate, a slot is provided to position the adaptor for the sin bar. Tighten screw. The bearing is mounted onto the workpiece spindle (15) and by turning the eccentric, locked into position. Slightly tighten safety screw in the eccentric without (Iamag;ng the workpiece spindle.



Open the micrometer (18) of the cross roller support far enough so that the bearing is touching the sine bar during the entire cutting length. In order to achieve a precision taper it is recommended to check the sine bar and the spindle (15) with a dial indicator. If necessary line up the new support plate.



19.0 Service

and Maintenance

In order for the Universal Spiral Grinding System to work properly, please follow the instructions below: 19.1 19.2 19.3 When the Device is mounted on and removed from the base machine, the cross roller slides must be locked by setting the micrometer (18) to the zero position. The workpiece spindle (15) must be secured from any movement with the spindle stopper (17). A unlocked spindle may cause damage to the micro limit switch (21). Neither the tension ring (26) for the index plate nor the drawbar should be loosened while the index pin is inserted. The index pin can be damaged if too much side pressure is executed. This could result in indexing errors. For absolute smooth operation of the workpiece spindle, a few drops of light spindle oil should be applied daily to the two lip seals.

Lock the scale plate (6) with the tension lever (4). Loosen the hexagonal socket screw (1). Loosen the tension lever (4) and the screw (3). Place the tension lever (4) and tension piece (5) aside. Remove scale plate (6) and washer (2). Loosen all four hexagonal socket screws (7) and remove the head plate (8). Loosen the locking screw (10) in the counter nut (9) and unscrew with spanner wrench. Loosen the locking screw (12) in the lower counter nut (13). With the spanner wrench, turn the counter nut (13) slightly to the right on the control roll shaft (19) - the pressure between the control roll and the workpiece spindle should be increasing. Important: If the counter nut (13) is turned too far to the right, the pressure will start to decrease. In that case turn counter nut (13) to the left. Now begin turning to the right again to find the highest pressure setting. To test the pressure, the slots (11) of the control roller shaft must be parallel to the workpiece spindle then turn the spindle by hand. If the pressure is satisfactory, begin assembly. Tighten the locking screw (12) in the counter nut (13) so that counter nut (13) cannot move. Turn the top counter nut (9) by hand onto the lower counter nut (13). Then back off the counter nut (9) one half turn. In this position tighten the counter nut (9) with the locking screw

Screw the head plate (8) on using the four socket screws (7). Mount the scale plate (6) using the washer (2) and tighten lightly with the screw (1). Mount the tension piece (5) with tension lever (4) and secure with the screw (3). Resetting the scale plate (6): Tighten the stopper (15) on the workpiece spindle with the tension lever (14) at the permanent stop (20). Turn the scale ring (6) until the stopper (15) can be turned radially on the permanent stop (20) without seeing a light gap. Loosen the socket screw (1) and turn the scale ring to the 90 degree position. Maintain the scale ring (6) position with the tension piece (5) and tightly lock the socket screw

The fme adjustment of the scale plate (6) is done by adjusting the vernier (17). Loosen the two screws (18) and adjust the vernier (17). Make sure the vernier is not touching the scale ring (6).

If the micro switch is not adjusted right, indexing mistake can happen. It is corrected as follow; Insert index pin (20) into the index plate and switch K2 so that index pin (20) stays inserted. Open counter nut at the micro switch (21) with 5.5 mm wrench. Set a dial indicator with magnetic base on top of the mounting screw of the helix adjustment scale (9). Turn the adjustment screw at the micro switch (21) to the right until the electromagnet is switching the control roller. The dial indicator has moved up approximately .001" (0.25 mm). No the control roller has released the workpiece spindle (15). The index pin (20) stays in the index plate. The adjustment screw at the micro switch (21) is now turned to the left until the electromagnet is switching the control roller - Dial indicator moved downward. Add another half turn to the left to assure proper switching, then counter lock with nut. Now it is assured that the control roller is switching before indexing and thus eliminating index errors.
