New wall concept
Very rigid, compact construction with optimal accessibility and overview for the operator.
Two vertical grinding spindles with the grinding wheel set in the C-axis pivot point. Reduced machining times thanks to shorter linear-axis travel distances.
Modern control-panel concept
Height-adjustable, with touchscreen, 19" diagonal screen size and optimum view into the machining chambers.
The reliable, intuitively operated software with 3D workpiece and machine simulation, combined with collision monitoring.
Even more flexibility for your manufacturing processes – with eight HSK-50 tool positions for the grinding wheel sets. Both grinding spindles can be loaded with complete flexibility.
Such as with the VOLLMER HP 160 pallet magazine, the HC 4 chain magazine or the HPR 250 free-arm robot for increased capacity and flexibility.
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 ground-breaking 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
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.
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.
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.
Speaking of which, the overview starts immediately in front of the VGrind 360, as the new VOLLMER control panel is positioned so that you not only always have the LCD display in full view, but also the work area.
- 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
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 that 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.
Always the right tool – without needing manual intervention: The optional tool automation for eight tools changes the grinding wheels on both grinding spindles, including the coolant nozzles if required, in the shortest possible time. This is a vital contribution to productivity within your manufacturing process.
