Matrix 79 No Longer For Sale - due to continued expansion
Matrix 79 in more detail...
Although it was for sale, due to high levels of demand for our product lines, T-tech are keeping the machine and have purchased another state of the art machine to further increase our production capacity.
This Matrix 79 tap thread grinder is a precision high speed machine with automatic cycles. It has a capacity from 4mm to 50mm or 2" diameter taps up to 305mm length, utilising a tap carrier drive with adjustable tailstock.
Thread pitches range from 0.5mm to 3mm or 8 tpi.
Speed range from 4 to 150rpm combined with automatic grinding cycles make it the quickest tap grinding machine ever produced. Grinding cycles include two way grinding; two pass one way grinding; and multiple pass two way grinding. This results in cycle times to between 30 seconds and 6 minutes, obviously depending on the tap size and pitch.
The Matrix 79 was the world number one choice for volume manufacture. It has a very solid construction with enclosed hood for high volume coolant flow. The large 450mm diameter grinding wheel, and automatic thread form crushing, combine to make it extremely accurate with a repeatability of 5 microns and typically 100 tap batches between re-dressing of the grinding wheel, where re-dressing takes 1-2 minutes.
It is currently used for manufacture of special HSS taps, and is only used 1-2 days each week. T-TECH has moved to carbide tap production which requires a CNC thread grinding machine utilising a smaller diamond grinding wheel, hence this machine is for sale.
This is a fully working and extremely reliable machine with a comprehensive manual of instructions and parts. It would be supplied with many grinding wheels and wheel adaptors.
This machine was purchased new by the former Clarkson Tap and Die Company. It was fully re-conditioned and has been owned by T-TECH since 1990.
