Modern Machine Shop
Agathon Machine Tools will show the 255 CL centerless cylindrical grinding machine for high-precision grinding. This machine is capable of grinding components made of tungsten carbide, HSS, ceramics, glass and steel parts with 0.5 to 30.0 mm diameters and plunge lengths of up to 125.0 mm.
Equipped with a precision CNC dressing system, the machine incorporates a stable machine bed with a welded structure for single-, dual- and triple-track grinding. The grinding and regulating wheels are supported unilaterally and can easily be mounted from the front. Measuring systems and peripheral devices for loading and unloading can be mounted at the machine front, the rear side, and on the grinding and regulating wheel headstock.
The grinding and control spindles form equivalent NC axes that are freely programmable. The CNC system is based on the Siemens 840 D controller that together with the "Safety-Integrated" safety concept creates a CE-compliant total system.
The company will also feature the new DOM Semi four-axis grinding center for the periphery grinding of ISO standard indexable inserts and K-Lands on one side for various materials such as tungsten carbide, ceramics, and CBN.
