|LIGNA provided a global stage for Vollmer to showcase its latest technology all designed to make end-users more productive and efficient. Here’s a quick over-view of some of the machines that were on display.
Circular Saw Blade Technology
Four axes CNC-controlled machine for sharpening tooth faces and tooth tops on carbide-tipped circular saw blades.
Machines all tooth geometries of HW circular saw blades in the same clamping fixture. With two CNC-controlled axes, it handles carbide-tipped circular saw blades with various diameters and tooth geometries on face and top.
CHD270 with ND230
Features eight CNC-controlled axes and a
measuring device and is designed for the automated machining
of carbide-tipped circular saw blades of various diameters
and tooth top and face geometries. The ND230 robot system has four CNC-controlled axes and three loading carriages for the automatic loading of a sharpening machine with up to 250 circular saw blades providing round-the-clock machining capabilities.
PCD Tool Technology
New 6-axis CNC disk erosion machine increases flexibility for tool geometries with 30% faster processing times with the new Vpulse generator.
Band Saw Blade Technology
CNC-Automatic profile grinding machine for band saw blades up to 270 mm blade width.
CNC-Automatic machine for sharpening band saw blades on the side angle.
Available in dry or optional wet grinding versions.

|The 20th LIGNA drew to a close on Friday, May 10, scoring impressive results across the board. Statistics from this year’s exhibition included more than 90,000 professionals from 100 nations in attendance.
According to Peter Allen, President of Vollmer US, “Vollmer regards the LIGNA show as an extremely important showcase for displaying our technology and products. This year we once again welcomed both new customers and old friends to our booth from all over the world, illustrating our company’s global appeal. We were especially pleased this year to welcome some of our North American customers who visited our booth at the show and followed up with a visit the next week to our headquarters in Biberach, where they toured the factory and the TDZ center.”
As a global market and technology leader, visitors were able to review the product range consisting of the very latest grinding and eroding machines for the wood and metal processing industry. Vollmer consistently bases its work on the tradition and advantages that the company can offer - the fast procedures, rapid decision making and quick responses of a business that maintains its strong family orientation.
Back on the booth, Vollmer selected to display some of its newest technology that covers the entire spectrum of their product offering. These included machines for sharpening hook and side angles of circular saw blades, profile and side grinding of band saw blades, stellite tipping of band and circular saw blades and robotic units that enable unattended machining. A “Vollmer Sawmill event” was particularly successful, building on similar events Vollmer has held at previous LIGNA shows.
Also of note was the introduction of the new QXD250 solution for processing PCD materials. This new machine expands on the QXD200 platform providing customers increased flexibility in terms of tool geometries and designs as well as 30% faster processing with the new Vpulse generator. The machine also has the capability of producing finishes on the PCD edge as fine as 0.1µRa. The machine is scheduled to make its North American debut at the AWFS show July 24-27 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“LIGNA is the perfect show vehicle for Vollmer,” concluded Allen, “as it enables us to display our full range of products covering all of the industries that we serve.”
