The small-footprint FastGrind CNC tool and cutter grinder is designed for high-speed resharpening of tools ranging to 9.4" in diameter using custom iGrind software. The machine is said to offer high positioning accuracies in all five mechanical axes, plus an additional four software axes. Linear axes are ballscrew-driven and the two rotary axes are direct-driven.
 
The machine sharpens drills, step drills, end mills, burrs, profile tools, routers and special tools using a double-ended HSK40 wheel spindle to increase flexibility and reduce setup time. It features a maximum 8" wheel diameter as well as a standard part-probing system and optional tool inspection software package.

    Because creep-feed grinding is essentially a milling process, why not use a VMC? A grinding machine supplier describes how a VMC platform can make creep-feed grinding more effective.

    Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.
