UNITED GRINDING WALTER Two-in-One Concept Expands Grinding Efficiency

MIAMISBURG, Ohio, May 3, 2019 – Based on a highly efficient and productive two-in-one concept, WALTER HELITRONIC VISION DIAMOND 400 L, HELITRONIC POWER DIAMOND 400 and HELITRONIC DIAMOND EVOLUTION tool grinding machines, from UNITED GRINDING North America Inc., integrate both eroding and/or grinding capabilities into single grinding machine platforms. From a production standpoint, the two-in-one concept lets users completely erode tools (PCD) and completely grind tools (carbide) using the same machine to eliminate the time-consuming task of moving workpieces to a second machine.

The WALTER two-in-one concept is especially beneficial in the production of modern PCD tools in which the tool’s carbide blank already has soldered PCD. The ability to erode, grind or even do both operations in one clamping gives users an unparalleled level of flexibility and reliability for their tool production applications. The machines process any PCD tool, whether for the wood, automotive or aerospace industry sectors, in addition to special/custom applications.

With the ability to perform both eroding and grinding or combinations of the two processing methods on one machine, tool makers can also expand into the PCD tool-producing field to increase new business and growth without incurring additional risk or threatening cost effectiveness.

All WALTER two-in-one machines feature the company’s FINE PULSE TECHNOLOGY, which has set new standards in terms of achievable surface quality, cutting-edge toughness and process reliability for PCD tool production. A tool made with FINE PULSE TECHNOLOGY shines on its free surface, similar to a polished/ground tool. Even coarse-grained PCD types, which previously could not be fine finished, are effortlessly eroded with FINE PULSE TECHNOLOGY.

In some cases, entire steps in the production chain have been omitted because the eroded tools no longer require re-sharpening or polishing. And in addition to PCD tool productivity, the machines work with WALTER HELITRONIC TOOL STUDIO, a software solution that makes tool shaping even easier and clearer, especially for PCD tools.
