The first Overbeck IED-1200 has already been delivered
After having developed the concept of our new IED-1200, in April 2022 our research centre Ideko conducted the FEM analyses on the new Overbeck machine prototype: static stiffness, the critical natural frequencies and straightness of the Z2-X2 axes during the grinding process were analyzed.
In July 2023, Ideko tested for the second time the IED-1200, but this time with the real machine.
The focus was on the validation of the new external grinding unit and its correlation with the FEM model.
The validation process included:
- Dynamic and static tests
- Geometric evaluation
- Thermal behaviour tests
- Vibration troubleshooting
- Modal analysis
- Z-axis waviness
- Minimum increment test
- Fault analysis
The results exceeded our expectations and confirmed the exceptional performance and capabilities of the machine. The machine has already been pre-accepted and delivered.
