    Vollmer Shows How To Cut Blade Production Times at MACH

    VOLLMER will be demonstrating its circular saw blade production expertise in Hall 20 on Stand 550 with the CHX840/HS CNC grinding machine and the Loroch Evolution K850-M. The two machines will appear alongside the Vollmer Vgrind 360 tool grinding machine at MACH. The CHX840/HS automated CNC machine is capable of sharpening the tooth face and top of circular saw blades in a single set-up with continuous unmanned running. Vollmer has developed this machine in line with the requirements of sharpening specialists and manufacturers that continuously re-sharpen circular saws. The CHX840/HS can machine carbide-tipped circular saw blades up to 840mm diameter; and for manufacturers producing larger saw blades, Vollmer has the CHX1300 for saw blades up to 1300mm diameter.

    With five CNC-controlled axes, the CHX840/HS can machine saw blades with all common tooth geometries and this also applies to axial angle and group toothing. The CHX840 machine at MACH will be connected to Vollmer’s HS automation solution, hence the CHX840/HS designation. The HS system ensures automatic loading of the CHX840 machine, so end users can benefit from more than seven hours of unmanned operation. The CHX840/HS can accommodate saw blades with a bore diameter up to 80mm and is generally specified for saw blades with an outer diameter from 140 to 530mm. Alongside the CHX840/HS at MACH will be the Loroch Evolution K850-M. The Loroch Evolution K850-M has a host of features that improve automation and operator experience, something that drew visitors at MACH 2018 with a number of ’off-the-stand‘ sales.

    Incorporating a 19inch touch screen CNC control unit, the Loroch Evolution K850-M enables blades to be programmed in minutes with data inputted directly at the machine via the colour display that is comparable to a Smartphone configuration. Suitable for processing HSS saws, solid carbide saws and friction saw blades, the Loroch Evolution K850-M has a powerful direct-drive grinding wheel configuration that reduces power loss and eliminates undesired vibration that can impact blade quality. Capable of both manual and automatic processing, customers can load saw blades from 130 to 520mm diameter onto the arbor in random order to suit production demands. Manufacturers can manually load blades up to 850mm diameter. To achieve this automated concept with differing bore sizes, bore reducing rings can be used to create a common bore size. Manually sorting blades is not necessary, as the K850-M uses its automatic loading function to process the blades without the need for ‘sorting’. With 8 CNC controlled axes, flexibility is second-to-none with just one clamping flange required for blades from 130 to 850mm diameter. For any manufacturer that is interested in circular saw blade production, the Vollmer CHX840/HS and Loroch Evolution K850-M at MACH 2020 provide a blend between high-end automated saw blade manufacture and user friendly cost-effective and efficient production.
