The outstanding advantages of Evo Penta

Low cost per workpiece
● Shorter grinding times thanks to very high material removal rates
● Short transfers due to agile handling and internal dressing
● Complete machining without re-clamping
● Standardized, compatible Agathon tools
● Fast product change due to offline programming and graphic simulation
● Up to 50% cycle time reduction with PowerGrind
● Low-maintenance components
Flexibility (materials, process, geometries)
● Extended swivel angles and travel ranges for significantly more geometries
● K-Lands on both sides without re-clamping
● 5 axis for wide range of workpieces and geometries
● Free combination of various dressing methods
● Largest possible range of applications from IC 3.96 mm to OD 50mm
● Suited for all common indexable insert materials

Maximum availability
● High autonomy with storage for up to 16 trays
● State-of-the-art, low-maintenance drives
● Short changeover/set-up times
● Designed and manufactured in Switzerland
● Fast, competent and efficient teleservice and on-site field service
