Schwanog Expands its Tooling Line for Escomatic Machines
The cutting tool company now offers new tool holders for left- and right-handed applications on Escomatic machines.
Schwanog expanded its line for Escomatic machines and now offers complete solutions for the Escomatic NM/D2/D4/D5/ D6 lines.
Holders for left- and right-hand applications are available for each assembly, and they are based on Schwanog’s DCI and WEP insertable tooling system. They are individually ground based on part specifications, which the company says results in part cost reductions due to time savings during tool change-over and high repeatability.
CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
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.
Here's a look at one of the oldest and most efficient methods of screw machine production for parts that are long and slender, with close-diameter tolerances and finishes, or parts that require truly spherical radii.
