Cases of grinding small radius by Agathon:
As is known to all, cermet inserts are widely used in the field of finish milling and turning with excellent performance. When use the Agathon machine to grind the small radius of cermet inserts, its precision, smoothness and the perfect degree of arc tangency still superior to others up to now.
Take VB inserts for example, Agathon peripheral grinding machine can achieve perfect grinding of R0.05 small radius. Actual grinding size is R0.048 (Magnified 200 times), which shows that the small radius is perfectly tangent. The "Chipping" is 5um.
Measurements of the radius R 0.05mm are R 0.048mm
The chipping measured on the insert are 0.005mm
The Agathon grinding laboratory in Switzerland takes the following limit grinding test on grinding of small radius of cermet inserts:
Agathon peripheral grinder has done an incredible job of grinding the R0.02 small radius perfectly. Actual grinding size is R0.048 (Magnified 200 times), which shows that the small radius is perfectly tangent. There is no obvious chipping!
Measurements of the radius R 0.02mm are R 0.02mm
No big chipping apparent
The inserts produced by Agathon peripheral grinding machine embody Swiss Made and Swiss Quality to the fullest. In the grinding process of such a small radius, in addition to the strength, stiffness and stability of the machine itself plays a key role , the efficient and concise circular interpolation algorithm is also essential. Agathon peripheral grinding machine adopts the most advanced Indra Control system of Bosch Rexroth , and combines with efficient interpolation algorithm to precisely control the linkage of X-axis and B-axis to grind perfect small radius. Meanwhile, Agathon's own dimension-driven programming language can do perfect grinding of all types and sizes of radius efficiently and quickly, especially Agathon's unique circular arc transition optimization instruction RTE instruction, which can make small radius perfectly tangent to the straight edge of the insert!
Finally, a friendly tip from Agathon grinding laboratory in Switzerland: If the accuracy of your testing equipment is not good , please do not grind the radius below R0.05.
