The Gleason Blade Profile Grinder is designed to significantly reduce floor-to-floor times -- and the cost of blade resharpening -- by combining a unique Gleason Quickedge™ grinding process (patent pending) with high-speed, flexible automation. The Quickedge process features faster stock removal rates, while reducing wheel wear. In addition, the process offers fast, highly repeatable results for a wide variety of Gleason and non-Gleason “stick type” blades of high speed steel and carbide materials. Sharpening of all geometries including those with front face sharpening is provided.
