Carmex Swiss-Line of Inserts and Toolholders Features PVD Triple Coating
The Swiss-Line polygon, for turning, back turning, parting, grooving, full-radius grooving and threading, allows multiple inserts to be used with the same toolholder.
This line features grounded cutting edges. The inserts can be indexed directly on the machine, and coated holders provide abrasion resistance.
Workholding for turning is usually fairly basic: The selection comes down to chucks or collets. This article looks at when to consider the collet chuck and what kind might be best for a given application.
The rapidly increasing demand for high-value threaded parts with exceptionally high length-to-diameter ratios has created a lot of interest in thread whirling technology among American shops and manufacturers.
Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
