The machine's two vertical spindles enable multi-level machining so tool manufactur- ers can produce milling cutters, drills and other tools with blanks made from solid carbide or HSS. Automated solutions, such as an eight-wheel pack changer, wheel compensation and free-arm robot, enable machining to continue unsupervised around the clock, the company says. With five CNC a xes, the VGrind 360 is said to achieve perfect interpolation with short travel distances for the linear axes and swivel ranges. The HPR 250 free-arm robot can be used to automatically manufacture rotar y tooling with various shaf t diameters, which the company says results in greater capacity and flexibility. The machine is controlled with NumrotoPlus sof tware, which ELIMINATE PREP-TIME AND GET TO FINAL PRODUCTION QUICKER.
