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

Whether the automotive, aviation or aerospace industry, whether machining aluminum, magnesium, MMX or highly abrasive laminates: VOLLMER offers the technologies you need for manufacturing and processing the respective rotary 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 around the clock, on a multi-shift basis and on weekends. With "ExLevel", we provide you with an intelligent software solution, which creates the most 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.
