Latest products Showcasing TYROLIT’s grinding tools
TYROLIT will showcase a number of new and innovative products for the automotive and precision engineering industries at GrindTec 2018.
TYROLIT, one of the leading manufacturers of bonded grinding, cut-off, sawing, drilling and dressing tools and supplier of tool and machine systems for the construction industry, offers a wide range of products. For example, in the medical field, they have developed abrasives and conventional grinding and polishing tools for finishing orthopaedic components. Further, two other products have also been in the spotlight recently: the Cool Cut 2 which is used in the knife industry and the STARTEC PG-2 that is used in the tooling industry.
Machining orthopaedic components
TYROLIT showcased special high performance tools for machining cobalt chrome and ceramic materials for hip and knee joints that can be customised as per the requirements of the client. For instance, the ceramic CBN grinding tools are used for knee joint machining that lead to lower process times and help to reduce costs per component.
TYROLIT also offers grinding tools that can be re-plated with a grinding layer height of up to 20 mm for fewer tool changes. When manufacturing hip joints and cups, TYROLIT polishing tools provide a particularly high surface quality. Using this innovative grinding tool set, comprising pre-grinding, fine-grinding and polishing honing sleeves, TYROLIT reduces the number of process steps from 5 to 3 steps and thus the machining time by up to 50 %.
COOL CUT 2 for knife grinding
With the new COOL CUT 2, TYROLIT has once more established a milestone in knife grinding. The newly designed bond is impressive because temperatures are kept significantly lower in the grinding zone. As a result, burning can be prevented particularly on difficult to machine cutlery. For the first time with an epoxy resin bonded grinding tool, they have managed to adapt the porosity individually to the respective application, which guarantees the best possible, particularly cool finish. Another advantage of the COOL CUT 2 is its tried and tested 2 in 1 application. This means the two layer disc can be used for grinding and polishing in one process step, which considerably increases productivity. The COOL CUT 2 is available for all knife grinding machines and applications and will be customised for the relevant process by the experienced TYROLIT application engineers.
STARTEC PG-2: Innovative grinding tools for tooling industry
With the new STARTEC PG-2 product line, TYROLIT offers a new, innovative rough grinding wheel especially for peel grinding hard metal tool blanks. The special combination of process-optimised diamond quality and high-strength metallic bond results in this roughing wheel that delivers a feed increase of up to 20 %. The special core design prevents vibration during grinding and thus guarantees a particularly high surface quality of up to Rz 1.5 µm and up to 10 % reduction in disc wear.
The finishing wheel is available with either long-life ceramic or metal bonds, which smoothes out large allowance fluctuations after roughing and produces a particularly high quality surface finish up to Rz 0.9 µm.
You can visit TYROLIT at GrindTec 2018 that is expected to take place from March 14–17 in Augsburg, Germany. The company will present their latest developments in hall 3, stand 3002!
