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.
- Typical productivity: 8,000 - 10,000 pieces per month
- Patented shank guide and steady rest support to reach a concentricity of less than 0.002 mm
- Short axis movements for greater stability and precision in production
- Linear and torque motors provide mirror surface finish
- JobManager software for unattended production of tools with different geometries
- Small footprint allows optimal use of available shop-floor space
- 6-axis kinematics for more flexibility and precision
The 6th axis allows tilting of the grinding spindle as a fully interpolating axis.
In addition, the spindle can flip 180 degrees to expose a second wheel pack to the tool.
This is one of the most recognized benefits of the GrindSmart®630XS. This feature offers a level of flexibility and exceptional precision that makes this machine an ideal universal companion for the production of end mills, drills, interchangeable cutter heads, indexable inserts, boring bars, taps, milling cutters, engraving cutters, dental/surgical tools and much more.
Successfully and widely used in various industries such as mobile telephony, watchmaking, automotive, aerospace, dental and surgical, and precision engineering of the ground products, this machine stands out with its exceptional surface finish quality and the geometric accuracy.
