ELKA Elastic

Your problems. Your custom solutions.

ELKA Elastic is totally customizable to ensure that whatever the surface that needs finishing, we can deliver a flawless result.

Modern grinding technology is no longer limited to the use of conventional grinding wheels with common bond types. Nowadays, elastic abrasives have also become indispensable.

Elka Elastic stands for decades of experience in the development and production of elastically bonded grinding wheels for various metal finishing applications.

Elastic grinding, polishing and matt finishing – Elka Elastic gives your products the final finish: quickly, reliably and cost-efficiently.

The following are a few examples of some of the solutions we provide:

 

Ball Screws

Ball Screws

Ball Screws Problem Descaling and polishing ball screws After ball screws have been hardened, the scale generated on them during the hardening process needs to be removed and the surface polished to ensure a durable and precise part. Following hardening, the surface is very rough. Solutions to date Vibratory grinding Slow process with nick marks on the surface Brushing Nylon...

Sharpening diamond tools

Sharpening Diamond Tools

Sharpening Diamond Tools Problem Diamond tools such as saws and drills become dull during use. Diamond tools have to be sharpened, i.e. the diamond grit embedded in the metal bond needs to be exposed again, as blunting and dirt cause it to no longer protrude from the bond, The metal bond and the dirt need to be removed. Sotution to...

Superfinish with grinding Wheel

Superfinish with Grinding Wheels

Superfinish with Grinding Wheels Problem Designers are developing and designing increasingly precise, tighter and faster parts/assemblies, such as Surfaces Rz < 0.5 µm in series processes on series machines. ChallengesLower tolerances, difficult-to-machine materials and surfaces, finer surfaces, lower ruffness levels. The ELKA solution ELKA Etastic Precision/ELKA Elastic Precision Cut Polishes almost all materials Polishing/finishing by means of machining and material displacement...

Deburring

Deburring

Deburring Problem Deburring turned parts in series production Turned parts are produced in very large volumes. High chip removaI rates can be achieved very quickty. Comptex geometries can be produced at the same time, such as cross holes, grooves or controI edges. Why does the burr need to be removed?Burr in a part may break in later use. The broken...

3D Polishing/ Manual grinding processes

3D Polishing / Manual grinding processes

3D Polishing / Manual grinding processes Problem Surfaces with complex contours present particular chatlenges and demand individual processing. Contours cannot be processed precisely or only with considerabte effort and costs. Thermal loads on the parts must be minimized and the use of targeted cooling solutions is difficult. Rough pre-processing mark (machine groves) must be removed. Solution to date Conventional grinding machines...
