Vollmer will feature its VGrind 360 tool grinding machine, featuring enhanced travel distances for machining carbide tools with diameters ranging to 100 mm. The machine’s two vertical spindles enable multi-level machining so tool manufacturers can produce milling cutters, drills and other tools with blanks made from solid carbide or HSS. Automated solutions, such as an eight-wheel pack changer, wheel compensation and free-arm robot, enable machining to continue unsupervised around the clock, the company says. With five CNC axes, the VGrind 360 is said to achieve perfect interpolation with short travel distances for the linear axes and swivel ranges. The HPR 250 free-arm robot can be used to automatically manufacture rotary tooling with various shaft diameters, which the company says results in greater capacity and flexibility. The machine is controlled with NumrotoPlus software, which offers applications for the production and resharpening of various tools.
