Press Release – August 2019
Mundelein, IL - Rollomatic Group Exhibits Next-Generation Punch Technology at CMTS 2019
The Rollomatic Group continues to specialize in manufacturing precision CNC tool grinders, peel grinders, and laser cutting machines for the production of superior cutting tools, punch/pin tooling, indexables, and orthopedic instruments. Showcasing live demos of precision grinding of carbide cutting tools, Rollomatic and Strausak will be exhibiting at CMTS 2019 in booth # 1437 from September 30 - October 3, 2019 at The International Centre, Toronto, Canada.
At CMTS, Rollomatic will feature our ShapeSmart® NP3+ for the first time in Canada. The ShapeSmart®NP3+ is part of an evolution of previous ShapeSmart® grinding models focused on cylindrical tooling. This new model has been redesigned both ergonomically and technically to offer more features to tool manufacturers who are looking for a machine with the best value for quality, price and performance. With a choice of 3 or 4 CNC axes, the ShapeSmart®NP3+ is a precision pinch and peel grinding machine for the preparation of cutting tool blanks such as endmills, drills and other stepped cylindrical tools, covering a range of diameters between Ø 0.025 and Ø 25.0 mm.
This model is based on the method of peel grinding with simultaneous engagement of a roughing and a finishing wheel. This technology, invented by Rollomatic, guarantees unmatched performance in cylindrical grinding and achieves micron precision. In addition, a length ratio of up to 400X diameter can be achieved by this grinding concept. Rollomatic’s pinch/peel grinding method ensures extremely high tolerances, form accuracy, and the lowest TIR achievable for carbide, HSS and stainless steel components.
For the first time at CMTS, Strausak will be exhibiting the newly updated U-Grind EVO, a smart CNC tool grinding center that provides the best in automation and performance solutions on an extremely small footprint. The U-Grind EVO is perfect for grinding specials, short-batch production, and re-sharpened tools for both traditional production environments as well as in-house tool rooms.
The U-Grind series uses a modified pick-up gripper and cost-effective clamping sleeves for both small and large shank-diameter tools up to 150mm for tool re-sharpening. Also included in the EVO model is a standard 6-wheel changer on the machine built into the machine footprint. With smart wheel management solutions thanks to a HSK 63F Wheel Arbor and included NUM control, the EVO is perfect for increased efficiency and automated production for both short-batch and long-run tool production. Other tailored features on the U-Grind EVO model include a fully-integrated tool loading robot from Stäubli that has user-friendly tool reverse and tool push-in functions with a capacity of 1000 tools.
The Rollomatic Group specializes in building CNC tool grinders, peel grinders, and laser cutting machines for the manufacturing of precision cutting tools, indexable inserts and orthopedic instruments. With the company’s grinding centers from Rollomatic and our sister company, Strausak, we provide complete grinding solutions for precision cutting tools in the industrial, aerospace, automotive, medical, and dental fields.
