The new Easy controlled Suprema cylindrical grinding machine is easy and fast to set up with changeover times minimised because much of the operator intervention normally necessary has been removed by simple but sophisticated software. An advantage of the Suprema is that it combines the benefits of CNC with traditionally styled operation, so is extremely easy to use even for operators unfamiliar with CNC grinding. Its GE Fanuc Touchscreen control system uses Jones and Shipman Easy proprietary self-teach software. The range replaces traditional CNC, microprocessor and hydraulically controlled machines yet it retains a conventional layout and operating style.
