The new SMS Heligrind SH series permits a wide range of grinding applications and is particularly suitable for the ultra precise and highly productive grinding of all kinds of thread-type workpieces. The SH is a console machine and is distinguished by its compact and low-vbration design. The machine has an optional vertical axis with hydraulic weight compensation.
The machine is a fully automated tap grinding machine, with an enlarged machining range up to M25. The A-axis enables a lead angle of -6° to +10° and allows the production of tools with lefthanded thread.The use of profile roll sets for the thread and chamfer makes it possible to grind both the thread as well as the chamfer in a single setup. The integrated handling system provides for very short workpiece change times thanks to the use of a 6-axis FANUC robot.
