Profile grinder makes moulder knives safely, automatically

IWF_C_SawColonial Saw has announced the UT.MA P20 CNC — what it calls the world’s first CNC profile grinder for manufacturing or regrinding profile tools. It is also a complementary finishing machine for those who rough grind with a waterjet.

Moulding and millwork companies can use the machine to grind custom knives in the original heads (including Powerlock heads) while toolmakers use it for mass production of HSS moulder knives, carbide inserts, brazed cutter heads and router bits.

The machine comes with a PXCAD, a 2D drawing that allows the user to create a CAD drawing of a tool profile or to finish drawing from an electronic scan of a wood sample or a non-dimensioned line drawing.
