Studer has brought two new cylindrical grinding machines to the market with the release of the S100 and S36. The S100 is a universal internal cylindrical grinding machine and the newest member to the “entry-level” family, designed to be a solution for job shops to get into cylindrical grinding or upgrade their older grinding machines with the latest technology. The S36 is the newest OD production grinding machine that has a modified wheel-head to accept a large grinding wheel with a diameter of up to 610mm and a width of nearly 127mm.

Blohm has released the Planomat XT Essential, a 3-axis grinding machine for job shops who need an attainable starting point to CNC grinding. Additionally, Blohm’s Profimat XT is now available with a tool changer, enabling the automatic changing of grinding wheels.

Walter’s Helitronic G200 and Helitronic Mini Plus provide tool grinding functionality in a compact package. The Helitronic G200 gives cutting tool makers and contract manufacturers an entry point into the regrinding market, and offers an economical solution for the production of small-to-medium-sized tools. Additionally, the all-new Helicheck Plus now comes with an available 3D sensor, which adds the capabilities of the Helicheck 3D model into the Plus model. The 3D sensor enables this machine to laser-scan a tool and generate a 3D model made up of as many as three million individual points.
