Press release date: March 10, 2014

Companies to showcase new machines and processes in grinding technology

MIAMISBURG, Ohio – UNITED GRINDING and Machine Tool Systems Inc. will host "The Grinding Seminar" on April 8 and 9 in Woodbridge, Ontario. The free seminar will highlight new technology in cylindrical and tool grinding as well as offer 23 presentations on advancements and trends in surface and profile, cylindrical and tool grinding operations. Software demonstrations will also be available by appointment.

Attendees will learn about advancements in grinding technology by way of the company's new STUDER S11 cylindrical grinding machine and WALTER HELITRONIC MINI AUTOMATION tool grinding machine. Software demonstrations will encompass STUDERgrind, which allows for online and offline programming of STUDER machines, and ToolStudio, CAD/CAM software for HELTRONIC machines that supports the creation of a wide variety of tool types.

Now the smallest machine in the STUDER portfolio, the S11 produces precision workpieces up to 200 mm (7.9") in length, 50 mm (2") in diameter and 3 kg (6.6 lbs) in weight. Despite its compact size – requiring only 1.8 m2 (71 in2) of floor space – the machine is rigid and stable, incorporating a Granitan S102 base that offers excellent vibration dampening and thermal stability, precision linear guideway systems and a rigid tailstock.

The WALTER HELITRONIC MINI AUTOMATION features advanced 5-axis technology for the precise, high-volume production of end mills, drills, step tools, profile blades and profile tools with diameters that range from 1 mm (0.04") to 16 mm (0.63") and maximum tool lengths of 185 mm (7.3"). Tool materials can include carbide, HSS, ceramic, cermet or CBN.
