ZHS-3040 can sharpen the blade edges of straight & helical hobs, and also the helical shaper cutter (Opt) and power skiving cutter (Opt). The Matrix Precision-developed intelligent conversations window software is easy for operation.

The hob sharpening machine applies the globally famous FANUC controller,linear motors and direct-drive motors;each axis can run simultaneously to get a high-precision performance.

The Matrix Precision-developed intelligent conversations window software supports complete machining procedure. Operator can follow the software instructions to input parameters. After setting up the grinding parameters, system will automatically generate the respective NC program and perform cutting tools sharpening task, which greatly increases the working efficiency.
