Agathon will introduce a line of machines designed for super hard materials, including PCD. The machines are designed to provide flexibility, higher productivity, and time and cost savings in small- and medium-batch precision manufacturing.

 The company will also showcase its AGC+5 control software for its indexable insert grinding machines, which provides users with an adaptive grinding process. This process is designed for rapid optimization of grinding operations while improving the production of already defined and optimized parts. A new measuring system enables flexible, in-process measurements, and a universal clamping system is designed to optimize these advancements.
