Walter will introduce the latest addition to its comprehensive machine lineup at the GrindingHub 2022 exhibition: the compact Helitronic G 200 tool grinding machine. GrindingHub 2022 is May 17-20, 2022, in Stuttgart, Germany, and Walter will be exhibiting in hall 9, booth A50. The latest Helitronic will also make its North American debut at IMTS 2022.

In a floor space of less than 2.3 square meters (24.8 square feet), the cost-efficient Helitronic G 200 offers tool grinding at its best. Grinding and resharpening of rotationally symmetrical cutting tools ranging from 1 to 125mm (0.039” to 4.92”) in diameter with a grinding wheel up to 150mm (5.91”) is possible. The Helitronic G 200 can accommodate a maximum tool length of 235mm (9.25”) and a tool weight of up to 12 kg (26.45 lbs).

The ergonomic design integrates a swiveling multifunction touch panel with a 21.5” monitor, facilitating easy operation and accessibility to the working area. A low-vibration solid mineral cast bed and C-frame construction offer high damping capabilities and thermal stability resulting in maximum grinding precision. The linear axes X, Y, Z are built according to the high Walter quality standard. The rotating A and C axes are equipped with torque motors and provide an unprecedented lifetime with minimum service effort.

The Helitronic G 200 uses the globally proven Helitronic Tool Studio grinding software from Walter, which provides ease of programming with the greatest possible flexibility.

For maximum productivity, a loading system is available: the “Top Loader” is directly integrated into the work envelope of the machine for easy access and therefore requires no additional floor space. Suitable for tools from 3 mm to 16 mm (0.118” to 0.63”) in diameter, the maximum tool capacity of the loading system is up 500 tools for tools with a 3 mm (0.118”) diameter. The Top Loader uses Walter-standard robot pallets and automated electrical teaching.
