EMO 2017 New standards in compact and flexible insert grinding
Grinding– Walter Ewag will present its latest innovations for tool machining at the metalworking show EMO.
At the company booth, the six-axis Ewag Compact Line will be making its public debut, as Walter Ewag announced. Visitors of EMO can inform themselves on this high-precision, compact and flexible machine for the grinding - including peripheral grinding - of inserts in tungsten carbide, cermet, ceramic, PCBN and PCD.
Applying protective chamfers on the inserts’ main cutting edges is ensured by the machine’s optimised kinematics as well as by the new C axis, Ewag says. According to the company, machine downtime is minimised by the machine’s short travel distances and by the integrated six-axis Fanuc robot that offers agile handling and a high degree of flexibility for loading complex inserts.
The Ewag Compact Line’s ‘three-in-one’ dressing unit ensures grinding wheel concentricity and high process reproducibility, plus offers wheel dressing, regeneration and ‘crushing’ in a single package, Ewag says. Usability and effectiveness is said to be guaranteed by the integrated ProGrind software.
At EMO, Walter Ewag will be in Hall 11, Booth B24.
