The positioning of a knife blade or an assembled knife against the grinding wheel, using a 6-axis robot, results in the grinding of granton edge in a single process operation, as well as contour grinding of ripples and/or micro-toothing for table or steak knives.
A variety of robot configurations are available, dependent upon the required cycle time. Various magazine systems are also available. Part-oriented programming takes place with a Windows-compatible program.
For more than 70 years, BERGER has been building grinding and polishing machines which are designed specifically for the demands of the cutlery and hand tool manufacturing industry, but also for utilization in other branches of metalworking.
