Shaping and Dressing:
first a diamond cutter shapes the grinding wheel and then a “star”
dresser “opens” the wheel for faster and cooler cutting action.
The operator selects the stock removal and
number of passes of the diamond and stars to consistently
produce the grinding wheel shape and surface you want.
the operator can select the number of grinding passes desired and how
frequently the wheel should be dressed on the VariSharp.
The computer compensates for wheel wear while it follows your
operator can even select to take a very light final pass with the
VariSharp at a slower speed to produce exceptionally sharp band saw
Fully Automates the VariSharp Grinder:
since the operator does not need to make any adjustments once grinding
has started. One operator
can easily run two CNC VariSharp grinders.
Or a benchman (especially one using an automatic Leveler or
automatic bench) can also run the CNC VariSharp grinder.
the Grinding Wheel:
the CNC wheel dresser maintains the wheel rim concentric to the
grinding wheel arbor. The wheel grinds with the entire periphery for faster stock
removal, better finish and less vibration.
CNC wheel dresser complements the larger grinding wheel motor,
heavy-duty one-piece grinding wheel arbor and bearings, and the
low-vibration poly-V drive belt that are standard on all new Armstrong
CNC VariSharp grinders.
