The B 600 sharpens, polishes and deburrs cutter knives up to a size of 1000 l fully automatically. The knife changer picks up the knife from the magazine and moves it to the grinding position. The sharpening program is started. After the grinding process is finished, the knife is returned to the magazine and the next knife is picked up. The machine processes up to 16 cutter knives in unmanned operation.
The performance amounts up to 80 cutter knives (500-750 l) per 8-hour shift. With each regrinding the complete blade profile is processed. The average process time per knife runs from 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the blade size. There is very little material removal from the knife. A 500 l cutter knife can be reground up to 40 times.
