VOLLMER at Ligna 2017
Whether for circular, band and gang saws or rotary tools – at stand B60 in Hall 27 at the 2017 Ligna woodworking trade fair, VOLLMER is presenting efficient complete solutions for machining both saws and tools for the woodworking industry. The new CC 355 production system is suitable for manufacturers of carbide-tipped circular saws for use in wood cutting. The CC 355 enables large numbers of circular saw blades to be fully sharpened – including all tooth faces, tooth tops and side angles – in a single working cycle. Four grip arms automatically carry the saw blades, which can range from 150 to 355 millimetres in diameter, from the loading system to the three machining stations. The CP 650 sharpening machine will also be on show in Hanover from May 22 to 26, 2017. It is suitable for sharpening tooth faces and tooth tops on carbide-tipped circular saw blades between 80 and 650 millimetres in diameter. What’s more, VOLLMER will be available to provide information about other machines which can be used for sharpening services or in filing rooms at sawmills – simply pay them a visit at their Ligna stand.
Sharpening carbide-tipped tools
The VGrind 360 grinding machine is suitable for machining carbide tools such as drills and milling cutters, which are used in timber construction and furniture building. Thanks to two vertically positioned spindles, the VGrind 360 machines and finishes rotary tools in large quantities quickly and precisely. Its enhanced travel distances enable carbide-tipped steel bodies up to a diameter of 200 millimetres to be machined, depending on their geometry. With the VGrind 360, VOLLMER provides tool manufacturers around the world with solutions for rotary workpieces of varying geometries.
Diamond-tipped tools – those that feature polycrystalline diamond (PCD) – are vitally important in the production of wood and composite materials. VOLLMER provides PCD tool manufacturers with a range of eroding machines. The QXD 250 disc erosion machine will be on show in Hanover. Thanks to its modified generator and expanded program functionalities, it enables more efficient, quicker, more precise machining. With the HC 5 pallet circulation magazine, the QXD 250 can be expanded by up to 28 workpiece positions.
“The Ligna trade fair is an excellent forum for us to speak with representatives from the woodworking industry,” says Dr Stefan Brand, CEO of VOLLMER in Biberach. “Alongside our sharpening machines, we are demonstrating our wide range of services which are tailored to meet the needs of our customers and which range from training and financing schemes to maintenance and repair.” Stefan concluded.
