Rollomatic has also continued development of its ShapeSmart pinch/peel grinder by the addition of a 5-axis grinder.

The NP5 utlises the proven method of ‘pinch and peel’ grinding, It includes a fifth axis which facilitates grinding flats and surfaces on cylindrical parts. Pinch grinding offers high concentricity even on long and thin parts. The rough and finish grind are performed in one pass which removes the need for a separate process for finishing and ultimately cuts down production time. The new machine utilises two different grinding wheels running on separate spindles and positioned on independently controlled CNC linear slides.
