Studer grinder Tailstock Rebuild



   Tailstock is the second most important part of the machine when it comes to accuracy and easy of getting the parts into size. Studer tail stock is well built to take anywhere from 136 KG to 150KG of part. IT is also built in a way you cna make a quick adjustment for taper. It is all going to depend on how well the barrel is matched into the bore. If it smooth and no wear your parts will come out time and time again right. If there is no coolant filled into the casting of the tailstock you can adjust the tailstock for 50 Micron deviation. This movement has to be linear , nice and smooth all the way. It all depends on how well it is torqued and setup while assembly. The barrel and the hole has to matched to perfection.

Rebuilding your tailstock at our facility: There are two aspects to the tailstock.

Top portion - Fixing the tailstock on the top side is all parts and the hole in which the barrel is seated. That can be fixed at our location and painted and sent back in 7 days like new.

Bottom Portion: This gets to be tricky. The tailstock has to be matched to the machine. The table height, wheel head height and the work head height all has to be matched. We cannot grind these sections to match your machine unless otherwise we are in front of the machine and take measurements. Then we may have to grind whatever is easier to grind and test it again.  It can sometimes take two or three trails. Even to start that, the table has to come off and all the swarf needs cleaned out of the bottom and make sure the table has no bow and sitting properly. The height and the face need to be machined to get the correct height and straightness with respect to how much wear is on your workhead. Some time table face has to be ground to begin with. It is an art. When we rebuild a machine in our shop this alignment can take us from 1 week to 3 weeks. You are looking at 5000 to 25,000/-

Now that you can understand the complexity, if you want us to rebuild YOUR tailstock we are more than happy to do it. But we cannot do anything to the bottom of the tailstock without having your table, work head and the tailstock. We can do the top section working for you in 7 days.

We do the above mentioned steps in our facility and when you get  a machine from us the centerline height is matched to perfection. The difference between a machine serviced and rebuilt is, we not only change the parts, but also match the machine to perfection. Grinding is about matching the parts.

Options - There are 3 different heights. 125, 175 and 225 mm. There are two different barrel strokes 35 and 50 mm. There are power options available. Any tailstock can be made into a power tailstock with some added parts.
