As you know, we are the exclusive European distributor of grinding machines from the Japanese company WAIDA. The medium-sized enginee­ring company from Takayama is the market leader in Asia for periphery grinding machines used in insert production. And when it comes to quality, precision, and reliability, our Japanese engineering colleagues are just as picky as we are here at Haas. WAIDA grinding machines (periphery grinding, CNC coordinate grinding, CNC profile grinding) are precise, solid, and extremely reliable.

A Fully Automated Endurance Machine
When mass-producing inserts, machines like the model APX-102 (seen above in the video) are true marathon runners, meaning that you simply can’t wear them out, even in fully automated continuous operation. On an APX-102, you can grind the periphery and protective chamfer of carbide, cermet, ceramic, and CBN inserts. The base of this economical and compact powerhouse (2515 × 1975 × 2105 mm W × D × H) is extremely stable. The machine’s work space and automation unit for loading and unloading inserts is extremely accessible. The control software is also just as reliable and user-friendly as the entire machine, and offers the ability to conduct 3-D simulations to prevent collisions. It goes without saying that the APX-102 offers different options for dressing the grinding wheels, including continuous dressing.

If you would like to see the WAIDA APX-102 up close and personal, come and pay us a visit in Trossingen. We can show you the many benefits of this grinding machine in our demo room. And of course we are also going to be exhibiting this machine at the EMO in Hanover from September 16 to 21, 2013; stop by our booth E28 in hall 6. If you would like to know more about the APX-102 before your visit, then send us an e-mail

See you soon – and keep grinding with attitude!
