Ewag’s six-axis Compact Line machine is a high-precision, compact and flexible solution for the grinding of inserts in tungsten carbide, cermet, ceramic, PCBN and PCD. Peripheral grinding is also included in the machine’s capabilities, the company says.

The machine’s kinematics as well as its C-axis capabilities ensure the application of protective chamfers on the inserts’ main cutting edges. According to the company, machine downtime is minimized by the line’s short travel distances and by the integrated six-axis FANUC robot that offers flexibility for loading complex inserts.

The machine’s dressing unit has grinding wheel concentricity and high process reproducibility, and offers wheel dressing, regeneration and crushing in a single package. Machine traverses in the X, Y and Z axes are 450 mm, 180 mm and 150 mm while axis resolution is 0.0001 mm. The 5.5-kW grinding spindle produces 10, 000 revs/min.
