The prerequisite for optimal cutting results is a perfectly ground cutting tool. But not every operator is sufficiently experienced to be able to choose the grinding settings required to get an optimal result.
Incorrect grinding can damage the band knife, negatively affect the cutting result and cause production losses.
Therefore, our “automatic grinding unit” includes an intelligent control unit that monitors itself and performs optimal grinding cycles for the Bäumer band knife.
Our control offers you a choice of three preset grinding modes. These can easily be selected and modified via the control touch panel.
1. Strong grinding:
After a change of blade or when cutting rubber or cork rubber rebond foams.
2. Normal grinding:
When cutting harder materials such as PU rebond foams with high volume weights and PE materials.
When cutting PU foams with light cutting pressure and high quality requirements for the cut surface (e.g. for the automotive industry).
The cleaning of the cup wheel grinding disks is fully automated with two pneumatically operated cylinders and truing diamonds. This way, we ensure a constant chamfer and consistent sharpness of the band knife.
In addition, there are the special functions “cup wheel grinding disk change” and “diamond screw change”. For these, each motor moves to a fixed and preset exchange position so that the machine operator can exchange the wear parts quickly and easily.
Obtaining the highest accuracy for your cut product matters to us.
The operation is very simple. The different modes can be accessed via a small panel directly on the grinding unit.
We are offering the automatic grinding unit for the following machines:
