Vollmer VDays focus on efficient processes

Sharpening specialist Voller recently opened its doors for the company’sVDays 2023 in-house trade fair at Biberach. Across three days, customers, suppliers and partners had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of grinding, eroding and laser machines with keynote speeches, specialist talks and product demonstrations. Around 400 visitors from around the world attended the event, which not only focussed on automation and digitalisation, but also efficient production using sustainable processes.

“We’re very satisfied with the popularity of and interest in our VDays,” says Jürgen Hauger, joint CEO of theVollmer Group. “In particular, we enjoyed the face-to-face conversations that we were able to have with our customers and partners.”

Over the course of VDays, Vollmer product managers and engineers explained sharpening technologies for various grinding, erosion and laser machines, as well as their potential applications in the metalworking industries. These presentations also included the latest innovations in tool manufacturing, such as the VLaser 370 laser machine, VGrind series tool grinding machines and the VHybrid 260 grinding and erosion machine.

Other machines, such as the CS 860 and the CSF 860 grinding machines, are suitable for the sustainable sharpening of circular saws. These models can machine the tooth face, tooth top and flanks of carbide-tipped circular saw teeth with high precision, energy efficiency and automation.

“Together with partner companies at the VDays, we managed to map the entire process chain in tool manufacturing and indicate how important digitalisation, automation and process efficiency are to tool grinding,” explains Dr Stefan Brand, joint CEO of theVollmer Group. “These trends offer opportunities for differentiation and competitive advantages, both for our customers and for ourselves.”
