UNITED GRINDING is offering a new tool grinding system — the Walter Helitronic Raptor— for grinding of rotationally symmetrical tools for metalworking and woodworking.
Developed with a focus on re-sharpening of rotationally symmetrical tools, the Walter Helitronic Raptor is particularly well-suited for shops that do not require features like automatic tool support systems or automatic grinding wheel changers, but still need a high degree of flexibility in the working area for diverse types of tools. The machine ensures that manufacturers have access to Walter quality, with the features they need for part-production and re-sharpening success.
The Helitronic Raptor has a 15.4-hp (11.5-kW) spindle and a work envelope that can accommodate tools up to 12.6 in. (320 mm) in diameter and 11.0 in. (280 mm) in length, including end-face operations.
In addition to a low-vibration gray cast iron frame and gantry-type construction, the Helitronic Raptor is designed to accommodate a range of options, including 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.
