TOOL AND INSERT PRODUCTION AT ITS BEST WITH WALTER AND EWAG

Walter Ewag UK, a member of the United Grinding Group, reports that in addition to displaying a number of tool and insert production/regrinding machines, as well as tool measurement machines, as part of the Group display, technology developments from both Walter and Ewag continue unabated.


For example, visitors will be able to learn about a new laser marking and cleaning station for the Walter Helicheck Plus tool measurement machine.


In addition, included among the myriad of Group machines on show, Walter will be showcasing tool grinding/erosion, and measurement, machines while Ewag will focus on insert production centres and laser-based tool manufacturing.


From Walter:

[] Helitronic Power 400 with Top Loader – a 24 kW spindle machine for the production and regrinding of tools of 3 mm to 320 mm diameter and up to 350 mm long. Integrated into the machines’ existing construction and with no restriction to the working envelope, the Top Loader has a pneumatic swivel arm with gripper to integrate with Walter’s standard robot pallet system for tools up to 32 mm diameter. The two-pallet system, one each for blanks and finished tools, can each accommodate up to 500 tools (depending on size). 


[] Helitronic Power Diamond 400 with Robot Loader – a single machine that can both erode PCD tools and grind carbide tooling, even in the same set-up (a tool’s carbide body and its brazed-on PCD tip) of tools from 3 mm to 380 mm diameter and 520 mm long. The Robot Loader can accommodate 21 tools of up to 315 mm diameter and weighing 25 kgs (or 28 tools of up to 220 mm diameter; 70 tools up to 105 mm diameter).


[] Helicheck Plus tool measurement machine with Robot Loader. The Robot Loader brings effective automation to the unmanned measurement of complex tooling. Depending on tool weight and length, up to 2,000 tools with a maximum weight of 1.5 kgs and a maximum length of 280 mm can be automatically loaded. Each tool is measured, recorded and separated on pallets (four standard; optionally eight). During the process, tools can also be cleaned before measuring as well as laser-marked in  the Robot Loader cell.


From Ewag:

[] Laser Line Ultra – for the state-of-the-art, ultra-short pulse laser machining of all cutting materials, including CBN, ceramic, PCD and CVD, accommodating inserts up to 200 mm diameter and up to 250 mm long. The machine features an integrated six-axis robot.


[] Profile Line – for the production of complex insert geometries, including interchangeable cutting inserts and rotationally symmetrical drilling and milling inserts of HSS, carbide, cermet and ceramic. This also has an integrated six-axis robot for autonomous operation.
