WALTER displayed flexible HELITRONIC RAPTOR DIAMOND at IMTS 2022
WALTER, one of the world's leading companies for tool grinding technology, featured the HELITRONIC RAPTOR DIAMOND, a cost-effective and performance efficient two-in-one erosion and grinding machine, at IMTS 2022.
Whether for resharpening carbide or PCD tools for use in wood or metal-cutting applications, the HELITRONIC RAPTOR DIAMOND offers the highest level of flexibility.
WALTER eroding technology achieves fast cycle times and better performance thanks to FINE PULSE TECHNOLOGY, which produces tools with smoother, more perfect exteriors and cutting edges along with super-fine finishes that match the level of visible shine generally reserved for polished tools. FINE PULSE TECHNOLOGY finely finishes tools made from the most common PCD types, from 10 µm grain size to coarse-grained formulations.
Developed especially for the re-sharpening and production of rotationally symmetrical PCD tools, the WALTER HELITRONIC RAPTOR DIAMOND is particularly well-suited for shops that do not require features such as automatic tool support systems or automatic grinding wheel/electrode changers, but still need a high degree of flexibility in the working area for diverse types of tools. This ensures that manufacturers have access to WALTER quality with exactly the features they need for part-production and re-sharpening success.
The HELITRONIC RAPTOR DIAMOND has a 11.5 kW (15.4 hp) spindle and a work envelope that can accommodate tools up to 400 mm (15.7") in diameter and 270 mm (10.6") in length, including end face operations. Like other WALTER two-in-one EDM and grinding machines, an HSK interface for electrode/wheel grinding is standard. For the utmost in tool grinding and eroding efficiency, from tool design to part production as well as re-sharpening, the machine uses WALTER HELITRONIC TOOL STUDIO.
In addition to its low-vibration gray cast iron frame and gantry-type construction, the HELITRONIC RAPTOR DIAMOND is designed to accommodate a range of options, including top loaders with up to 500-tool capacities integrated in the working area. Other options include glass scales, A-axis torque drive, a grinding wheel measuring probe and a manual support steady rest.
WALTER provides cutting edge technology to the tool grinding machine market with an extensive product line that includes the HELITRONIC VISION tool grinder (featuring linear/torque motors in all axes) and HELITRONIC POWER universal CNC tool grinders. Its products range from general purpose tool grinding machines to micro tool grinders, to machines for complex orthopedic implants, and beyond. In addition to its world class tool & cutter line, WALTER also produces CNC measuring machines that lend perfection to the manufacturing process.
