Walter (United Grinding Group) will introduce the latest addition to their machine lineup at the GrindingHub 2022 exhibition: the compact HELITRONIC G 200 tool grinding machine. GrindingHub 2022 runs from May 17 – 20, 2022 in Stuttgart, Germany, and Walter will be exhibiting in Hall 9, Booth A50. The latest HELITRONIC will also make its North American debut at IMTS 2022.
In a floor space of less than 2.3 square meters (24.8 square feet), the HELITRONIC G 200 offers tool grinding and re-sharpening of rotationally symmetrical cutting tools ranging from 1 to 125 mm (0.039" to 4.92") in diameter with a grinding wheel up to 150 mm (5.91"). The HELITRONIC G 200 can accommodate a maximum tool length of 235 mm (9.25") and a tool weight of up to 12 kg (26.45 lbs).
The ergonomic design integrates a swiveling multifunction touch panel with a 21.5" monitor, facilitating easy operation and accessibility to the working area. A low-vibration solid mineral cast bed and C-frame construction offers high damping capabilities and thermal stability resulting in maximum grinding precision. The rotating A and C axes are equipped with torque motors. The HELITRONIC G 200 uses HELITRONIC Tool Studio grinding software from Walter.
A loading system is also available where the “Top Loader” is directly integrated into the work envelope of the machine for easy access and requires no additional floor space. Suitable for tools from 3 mm to 16 mm (0.118" to 0.63") in diameter, the maximum tool capacity of the loading system up 500 tools for tools with a 3 mm (0.118") diameter. The Top Loader uses Walter-standard robot pallets and automated electrical teaching.
