Walter compact Helitronic G 200 tool gringing machine.

New Compact Tool Grinding Machine

March 10, 2022
The Helitronic G 200 grinds and re-sharpens rotationally symmetrical cutting tools grinding from 1 to 125 mm (0.039 to 4.92 in.) in diameter, with a grinding wheel up to 150 mm (5.91 in.)

WALTER plans introduce the compact Helitronic G 200 tool gringing machine in May, at GrindingHub 2022 in Stuttgart, Germany, and in North America at IMTS 2022 in September.

With a floor space of less than 2.3 square meters (24.8 square feet), the Helitronic G 200 offers grinding and re-sharpening of rotationally symmetrical cutting tools ranging from 1 to 125 mm (0.039 to 4.92 in.) in diameter, with a grinding wheel up to 150 mm (5.91 in.)

The Helitronic G 200 can accommodate a maximum tool length of 235 mm (9.25 in.) and a tool weight of up to 12 kg (26.45 lbs).

The ergonomic design integrates a swivelling multifunction touch panel with a 21.5-in. 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 linear axes X, Y, Z are built according to the Walter quality standard. The rotating A and C axes are equipped with torque motors and provide an unprecedented lifetime with minimum service effort.

The Helitronic G 200 uses the proven Helitronic Tool Studio grinding software from Walter, which provides ease of programming with the greatest possible flexibility.

For maximum productivity, a loading system is available: the “Top Loader” is directly integrated into the work envelope of the machine for easy access and therefore requires no additional floor space. Suitable for tools from 3 mm to 16 mm (0.118 to 0.63 in.) in diameter, the maximum tool capacity of the loading system up 500 tools for tools with a 3 mm (0.118 in.) diameter. The Top Loader uses Walter -standard robot pallets and automated electrical teaching.
