With the introduction of the VGrind360, VOLLMER has launched a five-axis grinding machine for the production of solid carbide tools with a diameter range
up to 100 mm.
A special characteristic is the ground-breaking principle of multi-level machining: The workpieces can be machined on two vertically configured grinding spindles – at the optimum C-axis pivot point.
- Innovative kinematics
- New wall concept
- NUMROTOplus® 3D software
- Modern control-panel concept
- Optional: Tool and workpiece automation
Using the VGrind 360, solid carbide drills and milling cutters with a diameter ranging up to 100 mm can be produced.
Take advantage of the best conditions for efficient and high quality production: Enormous flexibility thanks to the option to change both grinding wheel packages, reduced changing times thanks to the positively guided system and the useful automation options.
The VGrind 360 is the world's first grinding machine for solid carbide tools with two vertically configured grinding spindles. The grinding wheel set on the grinding spindles is positioned at the C-axis pivot point, which ensures high precision grinding results. Due to the short travel distances of the linear axes and swivel ranges, the machine concept is also impressive thanks to its extremely high level of efficiency. A further advantage is the effective cooling concept for the motors and spindles for higher thermal stability and long-lasting performance.
To facilitate work for the operator, VOLLMER consciously opted for NUMROTOplus®, a mature system that is already established on the market. With a logically structured user interface for intuitive handling and a perfect 3D representation of the tool and machine to ensure an optimal overview.
The optional tool automation system for eight tools changes the grinding wheels on both grinding spindles in the shortest possible time. For even more productivity. The HPR 250 free-arm robot allows the automated machining of tools with different shaft diameters for the first time, while also tripling capacity.
