EMO 2021: RAISING THE CURTAIN ON THE NEW VOLLMER VGRIND 360S

The Swabian sharpening specialist VOLLMER is celebrating a global premiere at EMO 2021 in Milan: The machine manufacturer is presenting its new VGrind 360S grinding machine for the first time, which can be used to automate the efficient machining of carbide tools such as drills, milling cutters or reamers. The machine is a further development of the VGrind 340S with a higher torque and more flexible automation options. Thanks to optimised linear induction motors, a plate heat exchanger and, for the first time ever, spindle indexing, the VGrind 360S will be especially beneficial for tool manufacturers developing and producing cutting tools for the automotive, toolmaking, medical engineering or aerospace sectors, to name just a few.
