Many high precision manufacturing facilities have been “home” to Parker Majestic manual surface grinders since the WW II era. The reputation connected with these machines is one of ruggedness and high precision. As with any machine tool, various components wear over time, and hence refurbishment is necessary in order to keep these machines grinding with the precision and accuracy necessary to meet demanding tolerance requirements. This article briefly discusses the inspection steps that need to be taken by a trained technician in order to ascertain the degree of refurbishment that should be performed on a used Parker Majestic manual surface grinder. After the inspection has been completed, the appropriate refurbishment can be recommended in order to restore the surface grinder to a condition similar to its original OEM specifications.
Some of the key operations performed in a typical inspection of a Parker Majestic manual surface grinder include the following:
As a result of the above inspection steps, various options can be presented to the owner of the surface grinder. These options can include a custom “rebuild”, where the owner can pick and choose the options he/she desires to be refurbished. Alternatively, the owner may choose the route of a complete “remanufacture” of the surface grinder, which essentially includes replacement of all major components, restoring the surface grinder to original OEM specifications.
