SMS Maschinenbau GmbH presents its new universal profile grinding machine, the Heligrind SH series. It permits a wide range of grinding applications due to its modular design. The machine is - depending on the version and equipment - particularly suitable for the ultra precise and highly productive grinding of all kinds of thread-type workpieces.
The SH is equipped with a maximum of 8 CNC axes and is designed as a console machine (travelling column construction) and is distinguished by its compact and vibration-free design. The machine has an optional vertical axis with hydraulic weight compensation. This extends the application range of the basic version with an additional adjusting axis or – in a further expansion phase – even a highly dynamic oscillation axis. The basic version of the machine has a table-mounted dressing unit.
The new modular control software (Helitouch) permits simple and fast programming and therefore very short setup times. The machine can be networked with other Helitouch systems to exchange programs and settings. The use of special profile software permits the ultra precise grinding of almost all profile shapes.
