Vgrind 360 Tool-Cutter

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. With its five optimally configured CNC axes, the Vgrind 360 is said to achieve perfect interpolation with short travel distances, affording excellent precision in very little time. The HP 160 pallet magazine, which enables up to 272 workpieces to be supplied, is used at the human-machine interface. The HPR 250 free-arm robot offers three times the previous capacity, and can be configured to automatically produce tools with differing shank diameters.

  • computer numerical control ( CNC)

    computer numerical control ( CNC)

    Microprocessor-based controller dedicated to a machine tool that permits the creation or modification of parts. Programmed numerical control activates the machine’s servos and spindle drives and controls the various machining operations. See DNC, direct numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • interpolation


    Process of generating a sufficient number of positioning commands for the servomotors driving the machine tool so the path of the tool closely approximates the ideal path. See CNC, computer numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • shank


    Main body of a tool; the portion of a drill or similar end-held tool that fits into a collet, chuck or similar mounting device.
