Machine System The machine body of the MCT Samatic 5000 Series Tool Cutter & Grinder is a fully enclosed grinding machine. It is built on a strong steel base with a 6″ thick granite on top for dampening. All X, Y, Z axis are built with precision linear guide ways and ball-screws for providing smoother control and long lasting machine life. The machine has two rotary axes. The C-axis is mounted on top of the Y-axis and carries the X, U, V, and A axis. The C axis is capable of swiveling within 230 degrees around the rotary center for radius, ball nose and left/right hand rotary or flat tool grinding without sacrificing tool grinding length. The machine is also equipped with 3/4 horse power coolant pump, a 30 gallons coolant tank and a filter system. Spindle Power The MCT Samatic 5000 series 5-axis CNC Tool Cutter & Grinder provides a standard variable speed 5 hp spindle motor. The spindle is belt driven for easy maintenance. Air collet closer Standard 5C air collet closer for quick and easy tool changing by hand. This capability improves operator efficiency while running the machine. Software The Machine Control Technology’s MCT Samatic 5000 series 5-axis CNC Tool Cutter & Grinders have built-in macro-programs for end mill, reamer; counter-sink step-drill, step O.D. and engraving tools with spiral or straight flute grinding, Just fill in the tool grinding information, no expensive grinding software are needed to run the machine. Custom built-in special programs are also our advantage over the other expensive CNC tool grinders, only Machine Control Technologies tool cutter and grinder is flexible enough to achieve such high impact results . Besides all these built-in software, the MCT Samatic 5000 Tool Cutter & Grinders are also allowing you to write your own programs with G code in edit mode.

Automatic Probing The optional automatic probe is provided for faster, easier and more accurate checking on helical lead length, flute length and flute position for regrinding. Lead Length Probing The automatic lead length probing capability is an optional feature which allows setting the touch probe to touch two points on the tool flute edge. The machine will automatically calculate the lead length and place the lead length value in the auto-programming menu as input data. Programmable Reload Pointer The programmable reload pointer is also a standard feature designed as a 3 dimensional stop for locating the reloading tool to the starting position without the automatic probe. When the machine finishes grinding the current tool moved to the packing position, then you unload and load another tool, press the “Enter” key, a reload pointer will move to the reload position to tell you where you should lineup and lock your reloaded tool. Then press “Enter” to start another cycle. Autoloader Capability The MCT integrated optional autoloader is a patent pending advanced auto-loader that is capable of loading different size and shapes of tools or parts, for the MCT Samatic 5000 Tool Cutter & Grinder, and can also be designed for custom applications. CNC Controller The MCT Samatic 5000 CNC controller is perhaps the most compact, dedicated and yet flexible CNC controller for tool grinding machines available.
