Optimal cutting results: Automatic grinding and how it pays off

11:15-11:45 a.m. (CET) | 04:00-04:30 p.m. (CET)

Quality requirements on cutting results are high and rising further. For optimal cutting results, the blade needs to be perfectly sharpened, which often is a rather inconvenient manual procedure interrupting the workflow. The new automatic grinding unit allows to obtain optimal cutting results. In this livestream, we will show you the function of automatic grinding on the machine, different grinding modes in action and an overview of the advantages of this useful device.
