Chevalier entered the US market in 1982 with the introduction of the FSG-618M, a manual grinder which has become the staple of most toolrooms in the industry. Starting from that model, it has grown into a company that offers a full line of machines to meet the various needs of machine shops and assembly lines alike.
The secret of Chevalier's success is rooted on the technology that goes into the machines' spindles: they are all assembled and extensively load-tested in-house before they are installed in each machine. Chevalier takes pride in putting the extra effort in manufacturing its own spindles.
For the CNC grinders, users prefer Chevalier's easy to use CNC conversational control system which, along with the factory pre-programmed canned cycles, allow the operator to use the machine even with minimum programming experience.
The integration of Chevalier's Smart II control system in its new line of double column grinders means having heavy duty CNC creepfeed and profile machines that feature automatic wheel dressing with compensation, dress-while-you-grind capability and grinding simulation mode.
