EFFICIENCY SQUARED: VOLLMER VGRIND 360 CARBIDE TOOLS – SMARTER PRODUCTION.

 

High level productivity and precision for carbide tools

With the VGrind 360, VOLLMER presents a five-axis grinding machine for the production of carbide tools with a diameter of up to 100 mm.
A special characteristic is the groundbreaking 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
  • 3D software NUMROTOplus®
  • Modern control panel concept
  • Optional: Tool and workpiece automation

Producing carbide drills and milling cutters

The VGrind 360 can be used to produce carbide drills and milling cutters with a diameter up to 100 mm.

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.

This means that precision can be achieved for tools, even at full speed

The VGrind 360 is the world's first grinding machine for 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 highly precise 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.

Fully informed thanks to the perfect 3D representation

ADVANCED DESIGN – TRIED-AND-TESTED CONTROL: NUMROTOplus® INSIDE

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.

Furthermore, the new VOLLMER control panel is positioned directly in front of the VGrind, so that you not only have the LCD display in full view at all times, but also the work area.

COOLANT NOZZLES

Automatic changing of grinding wheel sets including coolant supply for optimum productivity

HIGH-FREQUENCY SPINDLE

High-frequency spindle with an automatic tool changer for optimal machining of recess seats for PCD segments

STEADY REST

Stable, flexibly adjustable steady rest with automatic stroke ensures optimal grinding results for longer workpieces

ROUGHING UNIT

Automatic roughing unit enables the abrasive coating to be opened during production

FURTHER OPTIONS

  • Improved performance thanks to an increased torque of over 40% – available as an option for the lower spindle
  • Simultaneous grinding wheel package and tool change in combination with the HP 160 pallet magazine for reduced non-productive times during loading
  • Grinding spindle available with a direct motor or belt drive
  • Linear scales: Even greater precision thanks to determining the position of the axes
  • Disc probe: Tool measurement and wear control within the machine
  • Automated changing of intermediate sleeves with bayonet

AUTOMATION: HOWEVER YOU NEED IT

One of the key factors in modern tool production is automating the work processes. When developing the VGrind 360, VOLLMER took this into consideration and offers meaningful equipment options, which ensure your manufacturing process is faster, safer and more precise.

In terms of workpiece automation, the VGrind 360 is very flexible and can be adapted to meet your needs thanks to its compact construction. Thanks to the machine concept, the most varied automation solutions can be combined together, which has a clear positive effect on productivity.

PALLET MAGAZINE HP 160

To get the most out of your manufacturing process, the HP 160 pallet magazine enables up to 272 workpieces to be supplied – all while releasing your operating staff. It is possible to load and unload the workpiece storage during normal operation.

HPR 250 FREE-ARM ROBOT

The HPR 250 free-arm robot allows the automated machining of tools with different shaft diameters for the first time, while also tripling capacity.

HC 4 CHAIN MAGAZINE

The HC 4 chain magazine has space for 39 HSK-A63 workpieces in a compact design – or, optionally, up to 158 shaft workpieces.

 

 

TOOL MAGAZINE

Always the right tool – without needing manual Intervention: The optional tool automation for eight tools changes the grinding wheels, including coolant nozzles, on both grinding spindles in the shortest possible time on request. This is a vital contribution to productivity within your manufacturing process.
