Ball Matic are machining centers to turn and grind the sphere of ball valves.
Ball Matic line consists of 4 different models depending on the different maximum internal diameter of the ball (in inches): Ball Matic 24", 36", 48" and 64".
Depending on the Ball Matic model they are with a single bed (Ball Matic 24" and 36"), double bed (Ball Matic 48") or three beds (Ball Matic 64").
The turning is done with tools mounted on a blade (Ball Matic 24 '', 36 ", 48" and 64 "). In addition to the tools, a workpiece probe for centering the sphere is installed on these units.
An automatic tool changer for automatic turning tool change is available as an option for Ball Matic.
The grinding operation is performed with grinding Cups where the Stone supports are fixed. Thanks to this unique system the best results in terms of geometry of the ball are obtained. The clamping system of the cups is of hydraulic type in order to facilitate the changing necessary machine balls with different diameters. For the Ball Matic 24” model a two position Automatic cup changer is available as option.
In the Ball Matic the grinding unit is equipped with a vertical axis in to facilitate and to make possible a rapid alignment of the grinding unit with the ball center in the event that the weight of the latter determines a vertical displacement of its center compared to that of the machine.
All the Ball Matic machines are completely enclosed with Protections equipped with sliding doors for an easy access to the machine.
