The universal machine
The PLANOMAT HP combines reproducible precision and powerful speed with high flexibility – the ideal combination for efficient profile grinding. The robust, inherently stiff design with 3-point installation ensures the exactness of the modular PLANOMAT HP machines. A driving power of up to 24 kW combined with high-precision, digitised ball-type drives guarantees high infeed speeds and accelerations. Table speeds of up to 40 metres per minute reduce grinding times and increase productivity. Almost maintenance-free linear guideways and the highly efficient, lifetime-lubricated grinding spindles reduce the maintenance requirement to a minimum. Depending on the task, the PLANOMAT HP series offers six different working ranges: from 400 mm x 800 mm to 600 mm x 2000 mm. In addition, two different control concepts enable optimal adaptation to the respective grinding task. The EasyProfile control unit, an innovative BLOHM user interface on a Siemens platform with touch screen, optimally handles all routine workshop requirements, thanks to its intuitive operation. If the PLANOMAT HP is equipped with the professional Sinumerik 840D CNC control unit, complicated applications in toolmaking and series production are possible
The powerful machine
In applications where the production process requires high stock removal rates, the flexible and powerful PROFIMAT MT is the right choice. A driving power of up to 60 kW and cutting speeds of 170 m/s guarantee maximum productivity – for both conventional and CD/IPD grinding processes, as well as for all high-speed grinding processes with CBN. Pretensioned anti-friction guideways in all machine axes guarantee the necessary system rigidity and reduce maintenance requirements. The extremely efficient BLOHM software ensures exact interpolation of the axes and thus high workpiece quality. The scope of supply of the PROFIMAT MT comprises a Siemens Sinumerik 840 D control system with comprehensive operator prompting.
The compact machine
Whether precision, profile, internal or external cylindrical grinding – the PROFIMAT MC is a highly efficient grinding centre for any application. This extremely compact travelling-column machine offers everything that modern production solutions require, with a machine width of just 2000 mm. Different spindle variants enable diverse applications: The five-axis CNC profile grinding machines in the series can optionally be equipped with a horizontal spindle for drive capacities up to 60 kW as well as a stationary or an NC-swivelling vertical spindle with grinding spindle speeds of up to 60,000 revolutions per minute. With a maximum cutting speed of 170 m/s, travelling-column machines are suitable for both conventional grinding tasks and for CD, IPD and all CBN methods. Equipped with the relevant accessories - such as automatic tooling change, for example – the PROFIMAT MC is even suitable for combination machining. With the aid of the professional Sinumerik 840D CNC control system from Siemens, virtually any grinding task is possible.
Are you looking for a grinding solution for the production of large lot sizes or batch production? Then the PROFIMAT RT could be the right machine for you. This highly efficient production machine with a travelling column design is equipped with a rotary indexing table. This enables workpiece handling in parallel with the primary processing time, i.e. continuous, simultaneous loading and unloading during the grinding process. Low setup costs combined with high efficiency and the possibility of simple adaptation of automatic workpiece change systems set benchmarks in modern and cost-effective production. With a maximum spindle power of 60 kW and a cutting speed of up to 170 m/s, the RT is ideally suited for both conventional grinding and for CD, IPD and all CBN grinding processes.
