Vollmer, Loroch to exhibit at GrindTec

Sharpening diamond-tipped and solid carbide rotary tools will be the focal point of Vollmer's display at Stand 1017 at the GrindTec 2014 international grinding technology trade fair, to be held March 19 to 22 in Augsburg, Germany. The grinding and erosion machine company will demo its new VGrind 160 grinding center, the company's first for processing carbide rotary tools. 

Other trade fair highlights for Vollmer include the VGrind 160 tool grinding machine and the QXD 250 erosion machine with new ExLevel Pro software. With its ability to generate single erosion pulses at a time, the VPulse EDM technology used on the QXD 250 allows surface quality to be increased by a factor of two or more, according to Vollmer. The extended travel distance and swivelling range of the QXD 250 means that tools with a diameter of 320mm and a length of 250mm can be accommodated. 

Additionally, Loroch, a Vollmer Group company, will also present its product portfolio at stand 1034. At stand 1034 in hall 1, Loroch will present its portfolio of automatic saw blade sharpening machines, including the new CNBS 100 automatic band saw blade sharpening machine. This is an upgrade of the CNBS 80. Also displayed will be the PowerStar 850 CNC sharpening machine, which bridges the gap between the entry-level EKOSTAR 760 and the K850, a fully automatic saw blade sharpening machine solution, according to the company.

Both Vollmer and Loroch's U.S. headquarters are located in Carnegie, Pa.

"When manufacturing rotary tools, whether these are diamond-tipped or solid carbide, the sharpening process plays the lead role. The reason is that it determines the tool's level of precision as well as its service life," said Dr. Stefan Brand, Managing Director of the Vollmer Group.

Vollmer will present seven of its current sharpening machines for tool machining at the show, as well as a range of services, including consultation, advice and training, financing, maintenance and repair. 

Several machines for machining circular saws will also be available at the Vollmer stand for visitors to examine. The CL 200 sharpening machine for the machining of carbide-tipped circular saws and the CNC-controlled CP 200 for sharpening hook and clearance surfaces will appear alongside the variant CPF200 for sharpening the sides. Additionally, the CHD 270 with eight CNC-controlled axes for fully automated machining of circular saw blades will be displayed.
