• The GL5-i is a cylindrical grinding machine for dedicated processes in a high-production environment. It features a hydrostatic wheelhead bearing and way system, and the patented TOYODA STAT® BEARING and floating plate to ensure high accuracy and positioning. This machine is offered in plain- and angled-head configurations.

The Daily Grind for Years to Come

The TOYODA STAT® BEARING uses a hybrid of hydrostatic and hydrodynamic technology to eliminate metal-to-metal contact inside the bearing. This allows your grinder to run at top performance longer than your typical spindle bearing.

Accurate by Design

Toyoda’s floating plate absorbs movement in the ballscrew to maintain grinding accuracy and positioning.


User-Friendly HMI

Our grinding machines use Toyoda’s own conversational controls. In a convenient touchscreen panel, operators are able to program at the machine.

Automatic Wheelhead Retraction

In the event of power failure, the grinding wheel automatically retracts from the workpiece. This protects the grinding wheel from damage.
