Qg1, the CAD-CAM Grinding Software !
The Quinto-Qg1 programming mode is in line with the manufacturing industry’s most advanced standards. Individually programming of the tool geometry definition and grinding process is completely possible for both tools and other production parts. The engineering and manufacturing tasks of a product are often the responsibility of several members of the design staff, the clear data structure and Quinto’s internal interfaces make open program development and best cooperation possible. In our GeoMode, the tool geometry interacts with the 3D Graphics and common to grinding technology. An expert can use Qreator’s various software tools to implement his ideas of geometries and fine tune grinding processes.
The definition of the tool geometry in a digital CAD format enables any grinding process to be used for any surface to be ground. Qg1 offers a choice of grinding processes whose usage depends on the desired surface quality, specific material or of the existing wheels. The instantly available grinding result is much more accurate compared to conventional programming which directly converts geometric parameters into machine movements. With Quinto Qg1, 5-axis grinding departs from the art of grinding and moves closer to grinding technology.
Customers’ own developments require suitable programing tools. Qg1 CADCAM allows free programming of profiling tools with a very wide variety of clearances. Grinding types are combined with specific clearances. For the programmer, the grinding wheel in relation to the workpiece is only of interest for grinding. However, the related machine positioning is automatically managed by Qg1 and calculated to exactly 13 decimal places. Qg1 works with any grinding wheel geometry, either from the default database or customer data input, and equaly with the actual tool geometry using the measured profile.
Qg1 is an open system. Data exchange with external design programs is concepit. Popular formats like STEP, DXF or GDX, but also users’ own ISO programs, can be used in Qg1. Quinto-Qg1 is also open for production control. Available hardware for data transfer, from bar codes and QR codes to pallet memory chips, all combined with WLAN, Intranet or Internet. The grinding machine provides information about progress at any time
The robot programming offers conceptual flexibility as well. Within a pallet configuration, the production sequence can be individually defined, all supported by colorful graphics. Tool batches of various sizes are randomly strung together. Each pallet can be stacked in a different way, and the individual data can be accessed for the purpose of monitoring. Intranet or Internet monitoring guarantees a successful production
Get the complete tool programed with just a few clicks. With the NTTE (New Tool Toogle Extractor), you can complete the finished grinding program from the default tool database with only 3 more clicks, all depending on your choice of tool type. Number of flutes, number of center cutting wings and tool diameter - no need for any additional entries. The grinding processes, grinding paths and required grinding wheel shape are automatically generated.
Kinematic simulation and collision checking of Quinto Qg1 provides safety. All of the machine‘s movements and elements are considered, including 3D probe, grinding wheels, tailstock, steady rest and fixturing. Operators’ attention is drawn to incompatible components and he is supported in solution finding.
