In one operation the machine can grind a profile, rake face, coolant flat, neck and any other brand‐dependent featuresClick image to enlargeRollomatic’s new GrindSmart six axis 630XW tool grinding machine with six‐station wheel/nozzle changer is easily adapted for individual boring bar designs, both for short and long runs.

In one operation the machine can grind a profile, rake face, coolant flat, neck and any other brand‐dependent features.

While the machine is able to grind any large boring bar, it can also handle miniature turning tools, boring, threading, grooving and facing tools. Both right hand/left hand and ahead/behind centre can be produced with equal ease.

Rake angles can be ground in two planes and quick‐changs can also be conducted, all while maintaining the ability to switch over to round‐shank tools within minutes.
