Each machine can be set up with a minimum of effort within a very short time and subsequently allows customers to save costs and time as well as to ensure constant process quality. The ToolScope assistance system has a modular structure, with individual licenses possible for individual applications.
The worm grinding wheel is designed as a 2-zone tool with a ceramic zone and a resin zone. The ceramic zone is used for pre-grinding and finish grinding, while the resin zone is used for superfinishing. This innovative tool design meets the high surface requirements of the automotive and transmission industries for polished surfaces on tooth flanks.
Through targeted material reduction, the wheel weight has been significantly reduced. The stock removal rate at the core is not random, but is calculated using a computational FEM analysis (Finite Element Method). This means that deformations and potential performance losses can be excluded. Through use of the lightweight POLARIS LW version, the maintenance intervals at the grinding machines can be reduced and handling significantly simplified for personnel in production.
Through targeted material reduction at the core, weight reductions of up to 50 percent can be achieved. POLARIS LW tools determine less wear on spindles and bearings than comparable reference tools. Moreover, significant advantages arise during transport and fitting of the tools.
POLARIS LW tools provide the customary top performance of the proven POLARIS product lines. Thanks to the weight reduction, tool life increases are often possible as a side-effect, e.g. due to a reduction in vibration.
Coolant supply for the grinding process is via the tool spindle through the grinding tool itself, or alternatively is directed through the grinding tool holder to the grinding zone. This purpose-built holder facilitates a fast grinding tool change.
For the different quality requirements and performance demands both conventional grinding tools and specifications with superabrasives are available. These grinding tools have been customised for grinding applications on universal machining centres.
