The VOLLMER VGrind 360 is a five-axis grinding machine for the production of solid carbide tools with a diameter range up to 100 mm. The machine offers tool and workpiece automation options as well as a ground-breaking principle of multi-level machining.
The machine has two vertical spindles to enable multi-level machining. Manufacturers can quickly and precisely produce large numbers of milling cutters, drills or reamers with blanks made from either solid carbide or high-speed steel (HSS).
Automated features such as the eight-wheel pack changer, wheel compensation and a free-arm robot enable continuous, unsupervised machining.
The machine is available with either two vertical spindles for grinding wheel packages or with one grinding wheel spindle and one high-frequency spindle plus an automatic toolchanger.
The high-frequency spindle allows the grinding of special pocket seats for polycrystalline diamond (PCD) plates. The HC 4 compact machine includes a chain magazine with 39 spaces for standardized HSK 63-A hollow-shank tapers or as many as 158 shank workpieces.
With five CNC axes, the Numrotoplus-controlled grinder is designed for enhanced interpolation with short travel linear-axis and swivel distances.
