Vollmer’s VGrind 360E five-axis CNC grinding machine has two vertically configured grinding spindles. It is designed with short linear-axis travel distances and swivel ranges for increased efficiency and precision in production. The two grinding spindles are situated one above the other, with a grinding wheel set positioned in the X-axis pivot point. The VGrind’s polymer concrete walls increase rigidity.

The VGrind’s vertical spindle arrangement is said to solve problems related to fixed and floating bearings. Both grinding spindles can be fitted with various tools. Its motor and spindle cooling concept is said to provide higher thermal stability and lasting power and precision.

  • Between Centers And Centerless Grinding In One Setup

    It sounds like a contradiction in terms-between centers and centerless grinding on one machine. But for some categories of workpieces, it's a viable production process that can yield machining time reductions of 45 percent over separate grinding operations.

  • 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.

    Advanced grinding equipment gives this shop the flexibility and automation it needs to serve customers with either rapid-response or high-volume jobs.
