Rollomatic has developed an automatic tailstock option for its range of six-axis tool grinding machines. The tailstock option facilitates the grinding of reamers, form tools and other tools which have to be ground between centers. In addition, this system allows automatic loading/unloading in an untended mode. The tailstock swivels into position automatically, and the workhead pushes the front of the blank into the center. The repeatability of this positioning system is outstanding and allows you to grind cutting tools with high accuracy untended. Both male and female centers can be used.

The V-block shank guidance, which is standard on all Rollomatic six-axis tool grinding machines, is still used in conjunction with the tailstock, creating perfect concentricity between the shank and the cutting edges. The collet acts as a driving mechanism for the shank, which is also standard on all of the company's six-axis tool grinding machines. The system is available for retrofitting to all GrindSmart 620XS six-axis tool grinding machines.
