5 Axis Tool Grinder

5 axis tool grinders refer to 5 axis grinders that can grind tools with specific axis designs so that it is recognized as a five axis tool grinder in the machine category. This type of machines contains five movable axes that can work at the same time.
This structure is also similar to the de-burring process in some extend. In the metal working process, metal burrs are raised edge or small pieces of materials that remains attached to a work piece after a modification process. They are not ideal to the performance of the work pieces so that the mechanism of removing those waste edges is considered very important. It is usually an unwanted piece of materials and are removed with a de-burring tool at first and later by the machine in a process called de-burring procedure. Many grinding mechanism is just like de-burring, and vice versa. Most of the de-burring process is done by the grinding mechanism.


The essential definition of grinding is that this process is one of the power tools or machine tools utilized for grinding. This is a type of machining using an abrasive wheel as the cutting tool for processing. Each grain of the abrasive on the wheel's surface cuts a small chip from the work piece through shear deformation. Grinding is adopted to finish work pieces that must show high surface quality and high accuracy of shape and dimensions. The accuracy in dimensions in grinding is generally of the order of 0.000025 mm, therefore, in most applications, it tends to be a finishing operation and removes comparatively little metal, about 0.25 to 0.50 mm depth.

Besides, there are a few of grinding machine structures, such as belt grinders, bench grinders, cylindrical grinders, surface grinders, tool grinders, jig grinders, gear grinders, center grinders, die grinders, and angle grinders. In sum, for metal working to be done, all the tooling units need to be processed well. Metal burrs are not ideal to the performance of the work pieces, so the mechanism of removing those un-wanted edges is considered very important. How to deal with the tooling system is also a serious in-house issue for manufacturers. Five axis tool grinders can do a lot of jobs here. Tool grinding is a common in-house operation for metal working industry in the global market. So, these 5 axis grinder installed besides the production lines do help manufacturers in their tooling business.

Sawing Tool Grinding by Tool Grinder

There are mainly two kinds of sawing machines in the metal working industry and both types need their saws to be ground. That is, both band sawing machine and circular sawing machines are saw blade users that need their saw blades to be ground after a certain period of sawing.

Circular sawing machine utilizes circular tools to conduct sawing procedure rather than sawing bands to achieve the cutting mechanism, which leads to other machining features that is different from band sawing mechanism in general. Speaking of the grinding of the sawing blades, the process for circular and band sawing blades may be little bit different from each other.

Circular Disc Grinding

Grinding of circular discs help prolong the lifespan of the cutting tools. Circular sawing machine is a powered saw that uses a toothed or abrasive disc set or blade to cut different materials by a rotary motion spinning around an arbor. And circular sawing machines may also be loosely used for the blade itself. This type of sawing methods was invented in the late 18th century. They were in common use in sawmills in the United States by the middle of the 19th century due to the growth of industry over agricultural sectors in the states then.

No tools can keep its sharpness without further sharpening, unless it’s a laser device or other non-contact devices yet this equipment still need to be re-calibrated after times of usages. So, tool grinding and disc grinding are so much needed in all the relevant working circumstances, supporting milling, turning, and drilling, boring, and sawing tools. These are only a few examples.

Band Saw Grinding

For the last part, band sawing is the heart of the present article as concerned. Besides sawing tools, small tool and cutter grinders are also applied to grind turning tools, milling tools, drilling tools, and many other machining cutters just like the case of sawing machines. Onsite users need to observe their cutting tools carefully in order to know when to uninstall the cutting tools and have those items well repaired or ground so the processing of turning, milling, boring, drilling, sawing, and other types of machining can be carried on with an ideal setting as expected.
