This machine is used for turning and burnishing of ball head used in automobile ball joints (steering gears, for e.g). There is an optional CNC slide ( Z-axis) to machine the undercut relief behind the ball head. Sphericity achieved on the ball head is within 4μ and surface finish better than 0.1 μRa. Machine can be tooled up for Inner Ball Joint (IBJ), Inner Ball Joint (OBJ) and Suspension Ball Joint (SBJ) Ball pins.
Machines for Ball Valve Industry are also available

- Spindle speed : 0 - 4000rpm
- X-axis stroke : 150mm
- Z-Axis stroke : 150mm
- A-Axis rotation (tool) : 360º
- Max. thrust of burnishing tool : 1000N (spring loaded)
- Control system : Siemens CNC
