High flexibility tool grinder
- April 8, 2020
This flexible, cost-effective tool grinding solution was created for the metal and wood industries, offering both automation-ready flexibility and an economical, universal design for all-around tool grinding.
The Raptor is well-suited for shops that don’t require automatic tool support systems or automatic grinding wheel changers, but still need a high degree of flexibility for diverse types of tools.
The machine features a 15.4 hp (11.5 kW) spindle and a work envelope that accommodates tools up to 12.6" (320 mm) in diameter and 11.0" (280 mm) in length, including end face operations.
In addition to its low-vibration gray cast iron frame and gantry-type construction, the Helitronic Raptor accommodates top loaders with up to 500-tool capacities integrated in the working area. Other options include glass scales, A-axis torque drive, a grinding wheel measuring probe and a manual support steady rest.
