No less than eight of Advanced Grinding Solutions’ principals are exhibiting at the forthcoming GrindingHub exhibition including Rollomatic in Hall 7 on Stand C70, Tschudin and HandlingTech in Hall 9 on Stand D5, Bahmuller in Hall 10 on Stand D70, Krebs & Riedel in Hall 10, Stand E30, Comat in Hall 10 on Stand B44, Platit in Hall 10 on Stand B30, and FLP in Hall 10, Stand D07.
Rollomatic will be using the event to showcase its latest range of CNC tool grinding machines, blank prep cylindrical grinding machines and laser machines for PCD tooling.
One machine which will be the centre of attention will be Rollomatic’s new GrindSmart 660XW grinding machine which combines, for the first time, the power and performance of a blank prep cylindrical grinder with the flexibility of a multi-axis tool grinder to allow for all machining operations to be carried out in one single automatic operation on the same machine and in one clamping.
Therefore, cutting tools may be machined complete in a highly efficient single grinding process. Typical production efficiency from the traditional multi machine production method for standard end mills is in the region of 11% and this is said to increase to around 82% on the Rollomatic.
The new LaserSmart Femto 510 machine from Rollomatic offers cutting speeds of up to 500% faster than conventional laser machining, the company claims. The laser machining process is ideal for machining super-hard materials such as PCD and CVD diamond and creates razor-sharp cutting edges with a radius of under 1μm.
Rollomatic’s ShapeSmart machines are designed for grinding tool blanks and are based on the company’s peel grinding technology. This new generation of cylindrical grinding machine has been improved to offer more advantages for fast setups and excellent grinding quality including both rough and finish grinding in a single automatic operation for tools up to 25mm in diameter.
The 4-axis NP30 machine is a precision pinch and peel grinding machine for producing cutting tool blanks such as end mills, drills and stepped tools and also steps, tapers and radii. For special tools and punches, Rollomatic’s 5-axis ShapeSmart NP50 machine uses a patented method of peel grinding which allows the grinding of non-round shapes such as ellipses, squares, triangles or hexagons. The machines benefit from Rollomatic’s three-year unlimited hours, parts and labour warranty and free-of-charge software updates for life.
