Original Press Release:
The Vollmer QXD200 for PCD Finishing
The latest machine to showcase Vollmer technology for finishing PCD (polycrystalline diamond) tools is the QXD 200. This machine provides state of the art finishing, combining rotary erosion and fluting, with a polishing wheel to provide a mirror like finish in a single machine setup. This finish extends tool life and improves surface finishes on machined surfaces. Six programmable axes allow for continued innovation in tool design, while the six position tool changer allows for flexibility in electrodes and polishing wheel selections that can be utilized in unattended operation. The offline simulation creates a 3-D model that can be incorporated into other software packages for verification of end results on tool geometry. Vollmer continues to incorporate simplified programming for ease of training, and its modular design allows for several automation options to be incorporated as tool demand dictates.
