The Rondamat 1000 CNC from Weinig grinds and sharpens tools fully automatically.
A CAD drawing created by the Moulder Master program provides the basis for producing accurate profiles on the moulder.
The program links together the processes which take place prior to production.
Errors are designed to be minimized, process security improved and consistent high quality of the end products ensured, the company says.
The grinding wheels are clamped using a receiver that allows for quick changeovers.
The other grinding wheels are stored in a magazine with 3 slots.
For each grinding wheel, the diameter is measured mechanically in order to bring it into the right position to the knife rest.
