Walter launches compact Helitronic G 200 for cost-effective tool grinding

​Offering a high level of cost-effective grinding of tools of up to 125mm diameter, 235mm long and weighing up to 12kgs, the new Helitronic G 200 is the latest addition to Walter’s extensive range of tool grinding and erosion machines.

Making its public debut at the GrindingHub 2022 exhibition – May 17-20 in Stuttgart, Germany – and available in the UK from Walter Ewag UK, the compact machine occupies a footprint of less than 2.3 m2 and features Walter’s characteristic ergonomic design as well as quality build principles.

With a maximum grinding wheel diameter of 150 mm, the Helitronic G 200 features a low-vibration solid mineral cast bed and is of C-frame construction that offers high damping capabilities and temperature stability, resulting in maximum precision in grinding. The X, Y and Z linear axes mirror Walter’s renowned quality standards, and the rotating A and C axes have torque motors for maximised usage with minimal service.

The machine’s flexibility is enhanced with the use of Walter’s Top Loader loading system which obviates extra space requirements – and provides easy access - by being integrated into the working envelope. Suitable for tools of 3 mm to 16 mm diameter, Top Loader can accommodate 500 tools of 3 mm diameter, for example, on its Walter-standard robot pallets.

Available with a swivelling, multi-function touch panel having a 21.5 inch monitor, the Helitronic G 200 also utilises Walter’s globally-proven Helitronic Tool Studio grinding software for ease of programming.
