Vollmer of America

The German sharpening specialist Vollmer has completed its range of products with a laser-based sharpening machine. The machine concept for the VLaser 270 will be presented for the first time in spring 2020.
Intended for hook and clearance surfaces of carbide-tipped saw blades, the CHP 840 and 1300 universal sharpening machines with four CNC-controlled axes are suitable for the complete machining of all commonly found tooth geometries, according to Vollmer of America.
Vollmer of America's CHD270 is a sharpening machine with 8 CNC-controlled axes and a measurement device, and it's intended for the automatic machining of carbide-tipped circular saw blades with various diameters and tooth geometries on face and top. 
The use of carbide- or cermet-tipped thin-kerf metal circular saws allows for high feed rates, low machining forces and thin saw kerfs—all of which reduces energy consumption and saves resources, according to Vollmer of America, which specializes in grinding and erosion machines, and develops sharpening machines such as the CM 200/300 and the CMF…
The Vollmer eroding machine QXD 250 makes it possible for tool manufacturers to process more than 30 percent more PCD cutters in the same amount of time as has been the case up to now. This milestone in production is made possible by the generator technology Vpulse EDM, which sets the eroding beat at the heart of the QXD 250.
With greater scope in terms of its travel capabilities, the new Vgrind 360 is able to machine tools up to a diameter of 200mm, depending on the geometry. Just like its predecessor, the Vgrind 160, the same effective kinematics with two vertical spindles allow for multi-level machining.
Wisconsin-based Integrity Saw & Tool Inc. purchased a Vollmer CHX 840 circular saw blade sharpening machine with the Vollmer HS automated loading station to increase capacity to meet the demand from a new pallet manufacturing customer.
The global pandemic has impacted businesses around the world, but for Aiguisatek, a Canada-based sharpening service, the impact was compounded by stringent local regulation in the Quebec province that all but shut down manufacturing in the area. Automation technology solved these challenges.
Two technologies, one machine: The new VOLLMER VHybrid 360 combines the strengths of an innovative grinding machine and a proven powerful erosion machine. Allowing you to switch between the two functions in no time! Efficient processing and powerful machining of carbide tools with diameters of up to 50 mm. 
The VGrind 360, VOLLMER’s latest tool grinding machine, is equipped with enhanced travel distances in order to machine carbide tools up to a diameter of 100 millimeters.
Do you want to grind carbide tools and erode PCD tools with high productivity? The new VHybrid 360 from Vollmer of America Corp. combines the strengths of an innovative grinding machine and a proven, powerful erosion machine.
