1. Rates are floor to floor for a GT77 with cradle (walking beam) loader, thread grind only.
2. Thread lengths are ISO and ANSI standard short length.
3. Per piece rates for cassette style loader; subtract 3 seconds.
4. Per piece rates for full wheel chamfer (lead) grind; add 7 seconds.
5. Per piece rates for thread by thread chamfer (lead) grind;
(2 - 3 threads) add 27 seconds, (5 - 6 threads) add 37 seconds.
6. Rates are not the best achievable but are published only as a starting point guideline. Actual rates are dependent
upon type of grinding wheel, coolant condition, tap material, and product quality demand.

20x2.5...................20..................15
24x3.0...................18..................13
30x3.5...................16..................12
36x4.0...................14..................10
42x4.5...................12...................8
48x5.0...................10...................6

Rates are based on using CNC profile dressing, which adds about
1 minute to the cycle, but is more versatile and better suited to small lot
production (10 to 20 pieces). If a plunge diamond is used, like the ones used on the GT77,
the pieces per hour would be increased about 20%.
