Up for sale is this very nice Okamoto 6-18 DX3 fully automatic surface grinder. This is a model year 2000 machine and is in very nice, original condition. I have this machine powered and available for inspection at my shop and have used it briefly and all the functions work as they should. Being a DX model this has all the same desirable autosizing features of much larger Okamoto machines. You are able to set removal quantities and then walk away from the machine as it grinds. Once the desired thickness has been removed the machine will automatically spark out and pause. This grinder has a DRO on the spindle height as well as the optional cross feed DRO for more precise work. This comes equipped with a Walker fine pole 6″ X 18″ electromagnetic chuck which is fully adjustable via the machine control panel. Also, this machine is equipped with the coolant splash guard, coolant tank, and nozzle.
I have a video of this machine in operation available on my website. Included is an operation manual with wiring diagram, diamond dresser and holder, hub puller, wrench, and original Okamoto squeegee.
The base machine is over $29,000 new from Okamoto with the cross feed DRO being an additional $4600 option plus mag chuck, installation and coolant package! These are are some of the best surface grinders in the world, and are a toolroom standard.
This is a dual voltage machine that is currently wired for 230V but can be set up for 460V 3 phase power.
