Key features

VirtualGrind®GPro offers many features that are enhanced after each update.

Tool Sketcher

« Tool Sketcher » software helps you create 2D drawings quickly and easily from 3D tool simulations directly from VirtualGrind®GPro. The drawing can be exported in DXF format or as a PNG image.

Function editor

In VirtualGrind®Pro, all paths and operations are represented by editable functions, providing maximum flexibility in tool programming.

Job manager

With the Job Manager feature, included as standard in VirtualGrind®Pro software, the user can produce series of tools with different geometries from a blank with the same diameter for unattended production.

Models

VirtualGrind®Pro provides more than 70 examples of different tool programs, making it easy to create new tools.

Measurement during the process

VirtualGrind®Pro integrates automatic compensation functionality by making measurements during the machining process, which is convenient for unattended production.

Stick-Smart

The automatic Stick-Smart system cleans the grinding wheel and therefore guarantees constant cutting power throughout production.



NEW 3D SIMULATION - Version 7

New advantages of 3D simulation version 7.0

To meet the different needs of users, the VirtualGrind®Pro 1.29 programming software now integrates the 7.0 license, which offers many advantages.

Increased speed

Tool simulation is up to 3x faster, depending on the type of application.

Tool center of mass calculation

Version 7.0 introduces a new feature to calculate the tool’s center of mass. The value is calculated and displayed so the operator can balance the tool to reduce vibration during high speed machining.

Floating license

Version 7.0 is sold as a key, so can be used on several different workstations.

Optimized rendering quality

Thanks to this new version, the final simulation rendering is improved to offer a better quality simulated tool.





VirtualGrind®Pro 1.29 new features

Tool Sktecher

With the “Tool Sketcher” software you to create 2D drawings quickly and easily from 3D tool simulations directly from VirtualGrind®Pro. The drawing can be exported in DXF format or as a PNG image. This feature requires version 7 of the 3D simulation license.

Internal boring bar

VirtualGrind®Pro 1.29 offers internal boring bar package. Tool programming has become more flexible for eccentric plunge and the tool can be ground for right and left cutting applications.

Grinding wheel speed limit

Operator safety is a constant concern at Rollomatic. To address this point, VirtualGrind®Pro 1.29 applies maximum wheel speed limit which is defined according to the size of the wheel on a wheel pack. The wheel with the lowest maximum speed will set the speed limit for all the grinding wheels on the particular wheel pack as well as on the other wheel packs mounted in the machine.

Compensazione automatica programmata delle mole

La versione 1.29 di VirtualGrind®Pro permette all'operatore di anticipare una eventuale usura della mola programmando una correzione definita da due parametri: il numero di pezzi lavorati tra ogni correzione, ed il valore da correggere.
