Development of Agathon Machine Tools’ Leo Peri four-axis grinding center focused on achieving a smaller machine size, incorporating greater user-friendly accessibility, maintenance-free concepts and overall machine strength. The machine is designed for grinding the periphery of indexable inserts in carbide, cermet, ceramics and CBN (cubic boron nitride) applications.

Features include a fully integrated, three-axis linear handling system; state-of-the-art control technology; optimized direct drives for X, Y and C axes; in-process dressing; a 250-mm grinding wheel diameter; and support for four to six standard pallets for increased flexibility and efficiency. According to the company, the machine’s small, 4-m2 footprint, combined with short grinding times, high removal rates and low power consumption, result in low cost per workpiece while meeting stringent quality and precision performance standards over a broad range of materials.

In addition, the machine layout incorporates easy access from three sides, allowing for back-to-wall or back-to-back installation, as well as for uncomplicated servicing. A centralized layout of all machine connection points also eases operation.

Options include a vision system with LED luminous field and/or spot recognition; integrated cooling lubricant lift pump; software for easy program creation for ISO inserts; and other software options.
