The GrindSmart® Nano5 from Rollomatic (Mundelein, IL) is a 5- axis tool grinder designed for the manufacturing of dental, dental-laboratory, and medical tools and burs in carbide, stainless steel, steel, or two-piece construction. The system features BurCalc® software and Fanuc160i control with a PC and 15" screen. An integrated robot loader allows the loading of burs with heads larger than the shank. The machine hood is physically disconnected from the machine base to prevent external vibration.

The machine can produce tools in the subminiature range with shape and runout accuracy as low as 1 micron, and features hydrostatic guideways and a floating workhead. The system automatically grips the bur shank behind the head and provides rigid support during grinding.
