Print Equipment List


“Purchased in December 2023 the SMART-B818IV is a CNC surface and profile grinder. The machine features an 18 X 7.87″ chuck that can hold tolerances as tight as ± .0001″. This machine can produce complicated forms accurately, efficiently and with tremendous repeatability.

Stahli DLM 705 Top & Bottom Grinder

Our new Stahli DLM705 machine is a star on the shop floor. This machine is a 2-wheel top and bottom grinder dedicated to high productivity and the next level of precision. The DLM705 can handle just about any size or geometry you throw at it, holding flatness and parallelism dimensions as close as +/- .0001”.

Gerber BP-MX

The BP-MX brushes away sharp edges and burrs and replaces them with precisely defined radii and contours onto edges. Simultaneously the machine polishes the surface to the very finest finishes. For specific finish requirements different brushes can be applied. This technology allows Spartan to polish any surface of a tool. The machine comes with a touch panel computer allowing us to store settings and programs for ensured process repeatability. The machine increases both quality and efficiency for our edge preparation and polishing department
