Powerful erosion machines for tool machining

Efficient, high-precision machining is the key to the production of PCD rotary tools.

VOLLMER has a unique portfolio of intelligent, powerful high-tech erosion machines specifically for machining complex rotary tools – whether for production or service.

Advantages of VOLLMER erosion machines

With VOLLMER, you have a strong and forward-thinking partner by your side. We will help you establish an effective presence when facing the global competition.

As a result, you will benefit from the following when machining and manufacturing your tools with VOLLMER:

  • High availability
  • Precise results
  • Greater operating comfort
  • Higher productivity during manufacture of rotary tools
  • Tailored services

 

For machining PCD tools, VOLLMER's portfolio includes wire and disc erosion machines, which are lightweight and easy to operate. With the unique VOLLMER operating concept, you can carry out complex machining tasks quickly, safely and reliably after just a short period of training. And thanks to the high precision and surface quality achieved when machining tools using VOLLMER machines, grinding can in many cases be omitted.

Whether it's the automotive, aviation or aerospace industry, and whether you are machining aluminium, magnesium, MMX or highly-abrasive laminates: VOLLMER offers the technologies you need for manufacturing and processing the respective machining tools. Of course the same applies for complete machining including measuring, eroding, grinding and polishing. Special machine configurations with integrated infeed device and workpiece magazines enable fully-automated sharpening even after hours, on a multi-shift basis or at the weekend. With "ExLevel", you have an intelligent software solution which enables the totally realistic simulation of your tool production.

VOLLMER APPLICATION AREAS IN THE FIELD OF EROSION

Wire erosion

During wire erosion, machining takes place in a non-conductive medium. The wire serves as an electrode and is guided so close to the workpiece that a spark is produced, which melts and vaporizes the material. VOLLMER wire erosion machines are ideally suited for machining tool cutting edges made of PCD, PCBN and other ultra-hard cutting materials, and impress with maximum precision and performance. The right decision for rotary tools with complex profiles and geometries. 

Disc erosion

During disc erosion, a copper-tungsten disc functions as a rotating electrode. VOLLMER disc erosion machines guarantee maximum accuracy and reliability during the eroding process, whether for manufacturing or resharpening wood- and metal-cutting PCD tools. Innovative technologies facilitate measuring, eroding, grinding and polishing – all in just one clamping operation.
