Low Frequency Vibration (LFV) is a cutting technology from Marubeni Citizen-Cincom that is designed to avoid the problem of spiraling chips, entanglement of chips and built-up edges. In LFV cutting, “air cutting” time prevents the machining temperature from rising, which prolongs tool life and gives relief from various problems caused by chips.

Available on the company’s machines, this technology can handle a range of machining shapes and materials and is especially suitable for cutting difficult materials while delivering increased throughput and improved part accuracy, according to the company. Additional benefits include increased cutting tool life, reduced heat generation and reduced power consumption.

  • No-Burr Threading Helps Shop Compete

    With the switch from a ground top-notch tool to a pressed Ingersoll threading form tool on one high-volume job, Warren Screw Machine eliminated 2 minutes of hand deburring per part. Not incidentally,  the company also lopped 20 seconds per part off the threading cycle.

  • Inventory Control Systems For The Shop

    An ongoing effort towards more efficient operations drove this shop to take a closer look at indirect material usage, subsequently leading to implementation of a new system for tracking toolroom inventory.  

  • Thread Whirling Basics

    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.
