Carbide grinding machines for ultra-precise rotary tools

When brittle, metal hard materials coalesce with relatively soft metals, primarily from the iron family (iron, cobalt, nickel), then a material characterised by a high level of hardness yet also viscosity is created, known as carbide.

Its huge resistance to wear and capacity to withstand even massive physical loads make it a much sought-after material in many sectors: Including mechanical engineering, the automotive, steel or food industry.

Machining processes such as rotating, milling, drilling, engraving and grinding are almost inconceivable without carbide. It is also used in non-cutting forming or for protection against wear. In the field of tool manufacturing, carbide is mainly used for indexable inserts, as solid carbide rods or in the form of precision tools.

Machining carbide more efficiently

For the most common machining process – grinding carbide – the correct grinding wheel granulation, adjusted grinding parameters and an optimum grinding pressure are vital parameters to guarantee maximum tool performance.

For significantly higher productivity during grinding without compromising on quality, VOLLMER's VGrind grinding machine has provided a solution which immediately set new standards.

Thanks to innovative kinematics, which are controlled via two vertical spindles, various different milling and drilling tools can be produced quickly and precisely in large volumes.

VGrind 340S

Grinding machine for the complete machining of carbide tools upwards of 0.3 mm in diameter

VGrind 360

Tool grinding machine for the production of carbide drills and milling cutters with a diameter of up to 100 mm. The workpieces can be machined on two vertically configured grinding spindles. The optional tool automation for eight tools changes the grinding wheels on both grinding spindles in the shortest possible time.

VGrind 360E

Grinding machine for the cost-effective complete machining of carbide tools up to 100 mm in diameter
