Knowledge... simply explained Complex topics from the world of tools presented in an understandable way

From circular saws, carbide drills to PCD milling cutters - the world of grinding, eroding and laser machining is very complex. VOLLMER has been dealing with these topics for more than 111 years, and during this time we have done one thing above all: constantly learning and building up knowledge. We do not want to keep this know-how to ourselves. In our explanatory films we give you a comprehensible overview of the central aspects of our technologies and products.

Eroding technologies

In VOLLMER machines, we distinguish between two types of eroding processes: wire erosion and disk/rotary erosion.

Wire erosion and disc/rotary erosion work according to the same erosion principle and achieve the best results in terms of precision and surface quality. There are differences in the shape of the electrodes and their use. For an overview, see our explanatory film.

Eroding

In this film we explain, among other things, what eroding is, how this process works and what conductivity means: Eroding refers to a thermally removal process in which electrically conductive materials, such as polycrystalline diamond (PCD), can be machined. Material is removed from the workpiece by sparking between the workpiece and an electrode. The material is melted out and vaporized. This process is non-contact and can produce extremely sharp edges.

Properties of a grinding wheel

In this film we explain how a grinding wheel is constructed, what shapes and abrasives are available.

Correct repair of carbide tipped circular saw blades

When is the time to resharpen a carbide tipped circular saw blade? What is a wear bevel? What should be taken into account when resharpening? These and other questions are answered in our explanatory film on the repair of carbide tipped circular saws. Just have a look.
