The grinding spindle has two shaft ends. The face and back grinding wheel is mounted on one end, the two grinding wheels for flank and chip groove grinding on the other. This means that a total of three grinding wheels are driven. The sensors include a 3D measuring probe, with which the saw teeth can be measured precisely, and a sound sensor that carries out the sawtooth probing in automatic mode. In addition, the KMU 100 has wear compensation for the front and back grinding wheels.
In cooperation with our experienced process technicians, new sawtooth geometries were developed, especially in the field of metal saws, which set standards in terms of service life and reliability. In order to grind these sawtooth geometries, a high degree of precision and accuracy is required! A sophisticated operating system is available for the operator to enter the complicated sawtooth geometries, which can be operated intuitively and quickly. Recipes are created for the individual saw blades, which can be saved and recalled at any time. This can be done in parallel with the grinding process. A big advantage! This way there is no downtime during input.
The fully automatic grinding processs
Grinding is basically carried out in the sequence shown in the figure below. Individual processes can be switched on or off individually. If desired, the machine can take over the entire grinding process: from measuring the actual condition of the saw blade to logging the control measurement.
