Excalibur’s E60 can grind a variety of cutting tools, including end mills, twist drills, reamers, slitting saws and thread mills, in one chucking. Especially suited for solid carbide twist drills, the machine’s support rest holds runout to under 5 microns, the company says. Because the rest is stationary, the tool is fed through. Support is maintained through the entire grinding process, resulting in better finishes, point centrality and wheel life, the company says.
