The 6-axis precision tool grinder GrindSmart®630XS has been designed for high performance and specialty tool manufacturing for both long and short batches. It is equipped with linear motors, combined with the torque motor on the rotary axis, provides more benefits such as enhanced surface finish and reduced maintenance costs. The oil used for cooling and lubricating the linear motors is the same as the coolant oil. This ensures consistent thermal stability during setup and production without incurring additional energy consumption.
The 6th axis concept of this machine is unique in the grinding industry. It provides improved accuracy on ballnose endmills, or corner radii with a possibility to incline the grinding wheels and allows for easier programming with shorter empty moves during grinding operations. This machine covers a wide range of diameters from Ø 0.1 to 16.0 mm (.004" - .63"). As standard, this model includes automatic high speed pick & place tool loader with a capacity of up to 1,360 tools along with a double spindle which accommodates two wheel packs.
This unique design of the new GrindSmart® series offers the greatest flexibility and reliability as well as an exceptional level of accuracy among all tool and cutter grinders on the market.
The ShapeSmart®NP50 is a 5-axis Precision Cylindrical Pinch/Peel grinding machine with integrated 3-axis robot loader and grinding diameter range from 0.025 – 25 mm (.001"– 1"). The ShapeSmart®NP50 is ideal for cutting tool blank preparation as well as punch and mold applications requiring complex geometry and high length-to-diameter ratios.
