QXD 250: Faster machining of PCD tools
The QXD 250 disc erosion machine will be displayed at LIGNA to demonstrate how it functions. Diamond –tipped tools such as polycrystalline diamond (PCD) play a key role in the production of wood and composite materials. VOLLMER is all set to offer new packages in both software and hardware with which the key machine performance may be improved in a significant way.
VPulse 500: Wire erosion for precise tools
VOLLMER offers wire erosion machines for machining PCD tools. The company will present the VPulse 500 wire erosion machine at the LIGNA. Now with a new eroding generator and advanced technology, it can manufacture high-quality PCD tools in large volumes. The new kinematics offer advanced profile accuracy in production as well as maintenance. The touchscreen display of VPlus 500 further allows the user to programme and control the tool quickly in an error free way.
VGrind 360: Manufacture tools in large quantities
The VGrind 360 grinding machine will be displayed at the stall in Hannover from 27 to 31 May. This is perfect for machining carbide tools such as drills and milling cutters, needed in timber construction and furniture making.
CP and CHX: Sharpening circular saws for woodcarving
Technology highlight could be noticed with the sharpening machine CP650 that is suitable for sharpening tooth faces and tooth tops on carbide-tipped circular saw blades within 80 and 650 millimeters in diameter.
“We use Ligna for the in-depth exchange of information and ideas with customers and partners in the wood industry”, says Dr. Stefan Brand, CEO of the VOLLMER Group. He further added, “Apart from efficiency, precision and customisation, the topic of digitisation plays an important role this year.
