With the VGrind 360E, Vollmer is expanding its portfolio for machining carbide tools such as cutters, drills or reamers ranging to 100 mm in diameter. The machine is equipped with two vertically configured grinding spindles for added throughput.

Short linear-axis travel distances and swivel ranges increase efficiency and precision in five-axis production. The two grinding spindles are situated one above the other, with a grinding wheel set positioned in the C-axis pivot point, provide precise grinding results. Both spindles can be fitted with various tools. The polymer concrete wall concept further aids precision with its high rigidity and damping properties. 

The company explains that the VGrind 360E’s particular features enable it to process tools in the same time and with the same quality as the VGrind 360, but at a lower price point.

  • Jig Grinding On A Machining Center

    Roughing and finishing on a single machine, using a single setup, has appeal for most shops. The advantages in time savings and accuracy are obvious. Eliminating the transport of workpieces between machines, as well as the setup for those secondary operations, is a boon for throughput. Critical features that need to maintain dimensional relationships can be much more reliably produced if machined complete in one clamping.

  • What Is Single Point OD Grinding?

    Two enabling technologies -- superabrasive wheels and high precision servo control -- come together to provide a contour grinding process that resembles an OD turning operation. For many medium volume OD grinding applications, this method may be a means to consolidate several manufacturing steps into a single setup.
