WavyJoint CBN Inserts Enable Hard Turning
Tungaloy’s WavyJoint CBN inserts are a CBN brazing technology for high productivity in hard turning operations that are designed to improve machining efficiency.
Tungaloy’s WavyJoint CBN inserts are a CBN brazing technology for higher productivity in hard turning operations such as steel parts.
The CBN tip brazed with a conventional brazing technology is prone to detach, or de-braze, from its carbide base insert when turned dry at a large depth of cut, so operators have to use multiple, small cutting depth passes.
The insert is designed to improve machining efficiency, enabling hard turning in a single pass at a large depth of cut and at a higher feed rate.
Sometimes a shop doesn’t do enough turning work to justify the purchase of a CNC lathe. But when it needs to produce precision turned parts, even if for a very small lot size, the shop needs a solution.
For many shops, the decision comes down to a 4- or 12-foot-capacity magazine-style bar feeder. Here are some guidelines for choosing between them.
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.
