Hardinge présente la Voumard 1000, la nouvelle machine de référence de rectification du diamètre intérieur dans la production

New Innovative Hydrostatic Guideways Standard on All Axis Provides Highest Performance across ID Grinding Applications

ROMANSHORN, SWITZERLAND—January 20, 2020 – Hardinge Inc., the leading international provider of advanced metal-cutting manufacturing tool solutions and accessories, today announced the introduction of the VOUMARD® 1000 Universal CNC Internal grinding (IG) machine. The new VOUMARD 1000 offers a high-performance, economical grinder for the widest range of universal internal grinding requirements to obtain fine surface finishes and tight tolerances. Designed and manufactured with Hardinge’s high quality and focus on innovation, the all new VOUMARD 1000 is a new standard in ID grinding, providing customers with the ultimate combination of precision, performance in an affordable machine designed to optimize production costs when manufacturing high-precision parts for industries ranging from aerospace to medical. For over 80 years, the Voumard brand has been a global leader in innovative ID/OD grinding with almost 10,000 installed internal grinding machines around the world. Its line, specifically designed for machining work pieces with larger diameters and / or lengths. Typical applications are grinding operations on parts for hydraulic components, spindles, bearings, or gears as example. « Nous présentons un nouveau système qui prend en compte les commentaires envoyés par nos clients, de la base rigide aux glissières hydrostatiques associées aux entraînements directs sur tous les axes, ainsi que la nouvelle interface utilisateur de nos commandes », explique Helmut Gaisberger, directeur international chargé de la gestion des produits Hardinge Grinding. “The new VOUMARD 1000 system exceed the most demanding of today’s grinding requirements.

Other than traditional grinding machine designs, the VOUMARD 1000 offers up to 5 fully functional CNC axis with outstanding positioning accuracies in the nanometer range as well as Best-in-class tool and work piece management. Le nouveau concept remplace le mouvement supplémentaire dédié aux appareils de dressage et de mesure. »

Being launched for the first time today at AUTOBAU AG, VOUMARD 1000 offers almost infinite configuration options for the widest range of grinding operations. The machine replaces the popular VOUMARD 110, VOUMARD 130 and parts of the VOUMARD 150 series. Prepared to machine work pieces with a length of 300mm length and 300mm swing diameter over the table. Customers can now get the following benefits and features:

  • Innovative HYDROLIN® hydrostatic guideways provide the highest performance – The VOUMARD 1000 features the newest generation of hydrostatic guideways on all axis for superb precision and productivity. Elles apportent une qualité d'amortissement supérieure, des opérations sans adhérence ou patinage, une rigidité parfaite (glissière enveloppante), offrant ainsi une qualité de surface et une productivité uniques, sans friction ou usure.
  • Ultra-precision accuracy with a fast oscillation for even the smallest diameters to enhance productivity– The VOUMARD 1000’s unique design does not have coupling joints to perform without any backlash, offer superior positioning accuracy-less corrections, as well as optimized thermodynamics in its direct drive linear motor system for better cooling management.
  • Unique, compact hydrostatic spindle turret configuration for ideal accessibility and larger spectrum of parts. Le nouveau système offre un axe B hydrostatique avec répétabilité du positionnement de référence.
  •  Advantages in high precision also in non-round grinding and improved accessibility with compact “table turret” collision-free dressing – The table turret on the hydrostatic B2 axis, can optionally be equipped with a workhead and a high-precision rotation axis (C axis) with direct measuring system and torque motor. Arrondi et précision optimisés pour les ajustements très fins de la cylindricité du diamètre intérieur lors d'une rectification cylindrique. Large sélection d'outils de serrage et de supports en option.
  • New compact, ergonomic machine design for better overview during grinding process and accessibility for best in class tool and work piece management.
  • Fanuc 31i control for improved operator access, fast programming and retooling, even for inexperienced operators. The latest BLUE solution software created specifically for the Hardinge grinding product brands will be available on the new VOUMARD 1000 with object guide for easy operation and short set up times. BLACK CAM Solution for CAM Functionality is available optional. To learn more about the new VOUMARD 1000, please visit: https://www.hardinge.com/product/voumard-1000
