The new Helitronic Vision 400 L high-performance tool grinding machine is designed for machining rotationally symmetrical precision tools such as cutters, hob cutters, drills, step drills, profile tools, woodworking tools made of HM, HSS, ceramic, cermet and CBN.
This machine is based on the globally tried-and-proven Helitronic Vision high-precision tool grinding machine with linear drives in the linear axes and torque motors in the rotation axes.
With an identical work area size compared to the Helitronic Vision, the new generation Helitronic Vision 400 L produces tools with a circumferential machining length of up to 420 mm compared to former 370 mm as well as diameters from 3 to 315 mm.
The polymer or mineral casting machine base and the portal design for extreme rigidity translate the high dynamics of the digital drives into virtually vibration-free grinding precision.
For the first time, there is also an inexpensive belt drive spindle for automated changing of grinding wheel sets available, that improves in addition to the double spindle variant and the motor spindle variant the possibilities for different configurations of the machine to fit customer´s needs.
The wheel changer is capable of changing grinding wheels up to 254 mm in diameter and up to 24 grinding wheel sets. The tool changer is a 6-axis CNC robot from Fanuc.
With the latest generation of the FANUC control system, WALTER offers users maximum availability and reliability. This is supplemented by the ease of use of WALTER's globally tried-and-tested HELITRONIC TOOL STUDIO grinding software, including 3D simulation and therefore guarantees highly efficient and user-friendly machine operation.
