                    • Grinding

                          • SU2 - Diamond Edition

                          • The SU2 is a cost-efficient precision machine for milling of engraving and form cutters as well as special tools. accurate cutting edge geometries can be produced quickly and economically - at highest degrees of accuracy.

                            The versatility of this extremely reliable high-quality machine complies with all requirements, even under toughest shop conditions.
                            Years of experience and continuous development have established the SU2 as an integral element fo rmanufacture.

                            The version “Diamond Edition” is fitted with diamond grinding wheel on balanced flange. The option “direct clamping of tool cone” (instead of collet clamping) allows to achieve highest cyclic running precision during tool grinding.

                          • MSK - Tool Measuring System

                          • SU2’s integral tool measuring system MSK allows for minute verification of tool’s cutting edge during the grinding process. The time-consuming clamping and unclamping for the measuring process does not apply. With a 20(40)fold magnification the tool will be displayed true sided in the ocular. A weight balance allows a comfortable handling.

                            The coordinate guideways are effectively protected against dust, this allows a workshop oriented use.

                            Various options are available according to your demands.

                            Even grinding machines from other manufacturers can be upgraded with MSK!

                          • KDS - Tool Cone Direct Clamping System

                          • Highest concentricity and short setting-up times are ensured by our direct clamping system of the tool cones.

                            With this method, the cone and the cutter are clamped as a package into the sleeve for grinding. This effects a deletion of the aggregate tolerance of cone and collet. Improvement of concentricity leads to minor tool wear and for this reason to a longer tool life. At the same time the work piece quality will be improved.

                            Besides quality improvement productivity will be increased considerably with a 5 to 10fold time saving.

                          • SU2 - Premium Package

                          • The SU2 PREMIUM package offers everything what can be expected from a High-Tech package for grinding cutter tools. It consists of the MSK with camera, integrated pc with monitor, keyboard and mouse, measuring software, tool cabinet with monitor holder, LED lamp and dust extractor. It is the optimum enhancement for the SU2.

                            All components are matched and provide a smooth process. The dust extractor is being switched on or off by the main switch of the SU2. The electrical wires are integrated in the backside of the tool cabinet. For the keyboard, mouse and dust extractor several drawers and compartments are available. Collets, grinding wheels and standard accessories can be stored tidy in the organizer inlay. This offers a fast change of the grinding wheels or collets.

                            Easy data exchange is possible via network connection or a USB 3.0 port.

                                • Control System and Software – oriented to process

                                • The performance of modern CNC controlled milling and engraving systems is essentially defined by the flexibility and quality of the software and control system.

                                  KUHLMANN, as a pioneer in this field, can look back on decades of experience in research and development.
                                  By the beginning of the 80’s our own control systems and software were being used successfully and their development has continued to this day.

                                  Our PC based 32 bit multiprocessor path control can operate at high speed with up to 16 precisely positioned axles.
                                  Tailor-made software packages have been designed specially to meet all the requirement of a wide variety of applications.

                                  2D and 3D image files can be imported and sent as a DIN/ISO file to the machine.
