Technical characteristics

Tools & grinding wheels capacities

Max. tool diameter:

  • 320 mm
Max. tool lentgh:
  • 450 mm
Max. wheel diameter:
  • 150 mm with wheel changer
  • 250 mm without changer neither HSKE50 electro-spindle

Tool-holder and electro-spindle axis

A axis (tool holder):

  • 650 rpm
  • SA50 passage through the center (diam 25.4 mm)
  • (HSKA63, HSKA80, SA40 already developed, others according to project)

B axis (electro-spindle support):

  • -15/+180°

Electro-spindle, wheel holder:

  • HSK50 et HSK63, 25 Nm from 10,000 rpm,    max. speed 24,000 rpm and from 13kw to 25Kw



linear axis: X,Y,Z, and 2 rotary axis:  A and B.

Cinematique CA5 eclatee

The A axis which supports the tool, is rotated by a torque motor which allows cylindrical grinding cycles. On B axis side, the active face of the grinding wheel working closer to the pivot axis of the electro-spindle, the accuracy associated with the indexing of this axis is optimal.

Wheel changer

Wheel changer

Large autonomy: up to 18 grinding wheels in store (6 stations with 3 wheels per hub).

Easy management of the wheels on their hubs.

The changer is bringing the hubs into spindle, therefore the necessary movements for the realization of the tool are not impacted (compact strokes for an optimal precision).

Loading time < 5s.


Automatic tools loading/unloading by the loading robot

Universal Solution:

Large workspace to integrate possible fliping stations, possibilities to modify the clamps, jaws and pallets to adapt to the most numerous needs.


This type of robot has been selected by the nuclear industry on this criterion.

Simplicity of implementation:

80 min training time. Possibility of loading in tool holders with a concentricity of 0.003 mm. The robot loads either the socket or the tool. The solution is economical since only one socket per diameter is necessary

Autonomy range:

Diameter range of 14 mm (possibility to load tools with a diameter between  6 and 20 mm without needing an operator).

Flexible pallets:
Pallets (composed of modular elements) for mixing, upon your wish, the diameters and the number of tools per diameter.

Ergonomic and flexible programming:

Possibility to mix mills, drills, reamers ... of different lengths and diameters on the same pallet.


The selection of accessories available for the grinding and resharpeneing machine CA7 EvoBoost include:

  • Centralized shower and filtering
  • Oil mist vacuum
  • Pre-adjustment and control setup
  • Tooling
  • Automation
  • CNC control steady rest CH
  • Manual or auto tailstock
