  • Campbell Model 1000 and 750 machines can rework jet engine short shafts. The machine is used to regrind spray metal repaired surfaces. Their machine can grind diameters with run outs less than .0002 inches up to 30 inches above the table top.

    Campbell has installed two Model 1000 Grinding Centers at a leading OEM to grind both ID and OD features, turn IDs and ODs, and turn threads. The machines are also equipped with probing for part and tool measuring. These machines can run any abrasive and include high pressure coolant systems plus tool and coolant nozzle changers to minimize operator intervention and ensure consistent process parameters.

    Another turbine OEM uses the Model 750 to produce shafts.
