Offering the cost-effective grinding of tools of up to 125 mm diameter, 235 mm long and 12 kg in weight, the new Helitronic G 200 is the latest addition to Walter’s range of tool grinding and erosion machines. Making its public debut at the GrindingHub 2022 exhibition (17-20 May, Stuttgart, and available in the UK from Walter Ewag UK), the compact machine occupies a footprint of less than 2.3 sq m and features Walter’s characteristic ergonomic design and quality build principles.
With a maximum grinding wheel diameter of 150 mm, the Helitronic G 200 features a low-vibration solid mineral cast bed and is of C-frame construction for damping and temperature stability. The linear X, Y and Z axes mirror Walter’s quality standards, while the rotating A and C axes have torque motors for maximised usage with minimal service.
The machine’s flexibility is enhanced with the use of Walter’s Top Loader loading system (pictured), which obviates extra space requirements – and provides easy access – by being integrated into the working envelope. Suitable for tools of 3 to 16 mm diameter, Top Loader can accommodate 500 tools of 3 mm diameter, for example, on its Walter-standard robot pallets.
Available with a swivelling, multi-function touch panel featuring a 21.5 inch monitor, the Helitronic G 200 also utilises Walter’s established Helitronic Tool Studio grinding software for ease of programming.
