Outstanding range of applications

Presented for the first time in 2019 as a prototype, Agathon's Evo Quinto is now in the final phase of its development. The market launch of this innovative 5-axis grinding center will take place as early as spring 2022. Thanks to the new A-axis, the machine offers a wide range of applications, especially for complex geometries. It is compatible with all existing hardware and software options of the Evo platform.

Can't be done, doesn't exist!

«Production equipment still limits the developer's possibilities. In the future, these possibilities will be limited exclusively by his imagination», explains Agathon Sales and Service Manager Daniel Felber

The reason for that is the new Evo Quinto grinding machine.
Its outstanding feature is the freedom of movement of the fifth axis. The A axis swivels continuously in the range from -51 to +236 degrees. This puts future users in the comfortable situation of being able to machine parts with complex geometries. For example, machining grooving inserts from three sides completely on the circumference, radius and with chipbreakers in one setup.


The key advantages at a glance:

  • The new A-axis enables a significantly larger and continuous swivel range.

  • Tangential grinding is possible on both sides of the grinding rim. Thus, machining from all sides is possible.

  • One set-up means high precision, productivity and autonomy.

  • Also on the Evo Quinto, the high-precision, integrated thickness measurement and a fast IC measuring probe ensure enormous time savings.

  • and much more

Timeline Agathon Evo Quinto

EMO 2019
First presentation of the Evo Quinto at EMO – the world's leading trade fair for metalworking – in Hanover, Germany, from Sept. 16 to Sept. 21, 2019.
GrindTec 2020
Due to the global spread of the coronavirus, GrindTec 2020 was cancelled. For Agathon it was quickly clear that an innovative solution for the presentation of the newest products was needed. Within a very short time, we therefore set up a Virtual GrindShow. This way, customers and interested parties could experience the Agathon trade fair highlights such as the presentation of the Evo Quinto already on March 19, 2020 via livestream comfortably in the office or from home.
T-Days 2021
In 2021, the T-Days took place digitally for the first time and inspired interested parties from both the machine world and the standard parts sector with dynamic and interactively designed live sessions. Highlights included the presentation of the Evo Quinto with advanced 3D simulation and the Agathon Guiding System Plus.

First beta test in June 2021
Careful testing and testing of the machine in real production before it is launched is important to us in order to be able to offer our customers a perfectly working grinding center. Therefore, the first beta test (field test) started in June 2021 in the regular production of a well-known company. A second test machine was delivered in December 2021.
Market Launch & Events 2022
The Evo Quinto will be launched in 2022. In the first half of the year initially in Europe, in the second half it will be available worldwide. You will be able to experience the innovative grinding center live in advance at GrindingHub from May 17 to 20, 2022 in Stuttgart, at AMB from September 13 to 17, 2022 in Stuttgart or at IMTS from September 12 to 17, 2022 in Chicago IL.
