Haas Multigrind LLC’s tool magazine has space for 70 grinding wheels. This feature enables Haas customers to combine multiple, high-precision, complex grinding and milling operations into a single part clamping and single machine cycle, the company says. 

On the Multigrind CB grinding machine, the Haas shelf magazine (2,000 × 2,400 × 3,200 mm, L × W × H) offers space for 65 grinding wheels of up to 300 mm diameter. On the Multigrind CA grinding machine, the shelf magazine can be equipped with up to 70 grinding wheels of up to 250 mm diameter. The magazine can also hold up to 20 coolant nozzles.

According to the company, the high capacity magazine enables customers to add more operations on a single part and reduce change-over time between different parts by loading wheels and tools for multiple part numbers in the magazine. The Haas Horizon programming system maintains locations, dimensions and life information of all wheels and tools in the magazine in addition to programming the machine’s grinding and automation functions.
