PcBN tipped tools can be ground and chamfered in one operation. Once the edges and radius has been ground, the vision system will check for braze thickness errors and will then rock the tool against the wheel to produce the chamfer.
Example 2 - Helical grinding a PCD end mill
The linear LM100 & rotary RM130 axes can be run simultaneously so enabling helical grinding of tools.
Optional Linear & Rotary Axes
The CNC LM100 linear axis sits on top of the pivot table. The CNC RM130 rotary axis sits on top of the LM50.
The RM130 can be fitted with various adapters such as
- Hydraulic chuck up to 32mm
- HSK adapters
- ISO adapters
- Morse adapters
Wheel dressing is by an aluminium oxide cup wheel and is under CNC control as part of the tool program.
