Atchison Steel VBM - Nov 2003
Table being set up on a vertical boring mill to re-qualify bearing service.
Picture of re-qualified bearing surface. The two black
lines are marker lines to make the oil groove layout easier.
Surfaces of bed way bearing have been rough
ground with hand grinder for better adhesion.
Wax strips 0.06" thick are laid out on bearing at desired locations. This eliminates secondary machining of oil groove pattern.
Another view of the oil groove pattern.
Foam tub is placed between segments to
conserve amounts of Moglice to be applied.
Bearing surface in bed is roughened, taped
off and cleaned prior to application of Moglice.
Using a Biax scraper, the tech puts a light cross-cut
on the table bearing to improve its surface
Partially flaked or cross-cut.
After the molding process, the machine bearing surface after the molding process, the machine bearing surface received a light cross-cut to improve surface finish.
New bearing surface of table after cross-cutting and stoning.
Tech using a Biax spotter to spot Moglice bearing.
These spotters and scrapers are available from Devitt Machinery.
Moglice bearing in bed is spotted for oil retention.
Close-up view of new Moglice bearing with molded
oil grooving and partially spotted surface.
The molded surface is an exact replica of the table bearing.
