Schwanog LLC - Manufacturer of Insertable Form Tool Systems

REDUCING COSTS IS OUR JOB!Are you a manufacturer of precision turned parts or drilling and milling components and want to considerably reduce your part costs?

Schwanog LLC - Manufacturer of Insertable Form Tool Systems

As a specialist in form tool systems, Schwanog has perfected thread whirling due to convincing process safety and excellent chip control.

As Seen In Production Machining

Insertable Form Tool Systems Save Money
PMTS 2019: The insertable tooling system from Schwanog LLC can be applied, but is not limited, to applications such as OD and ID grooving, form drilling, thread whirling, single-point threading, turning and milling, broaching of serrations, shaving and skiving, and polygon turning.

Schwanog's Insertable Tools Ground Individually
PMTS 2019: With its PWP and PWP-D insertable form drill system, Schwanog is said to address the problem of high setup times as the insert holder stays in the machine during insert changeover.

EDM and the Precision Parts Industry
Although EDM often is not at the forefront of concern for precision machined parts shops, it can play a big role in the production of tooling that these shops use.

Production Machining in Germany
This week I’m reporting from the Schwabian region of Germany, where metalworking has deep roots and good technology.

Insertable Form Tool Systems
The company’s tooling systems offer quality and high efficiency in the manufacture of precision parts in areas such as medical, automotive, aerospace and others industries.

Insertable Form Tool Systems Offer Fast Change-Overs
The insertable tooling system can be applied, but is not limited to, applications such as OD and ID grooving, form drilling, thread whirling, single-point threading, turning and milling, broaching of serrations, shaving and skiving and polygon turning, which often amounts to cost reductions of more than 40 percent for the user.

VIDEO: Polygonal Turning
Here are links to two video samples of a cool process for turned parts that has the potential for considerable time and part cost reductions, versus milling operations, when producing radii.

Save Time with Polygon Turning
Polygon turning provides the capability to manufacture both flat surfaces and radii.

Insertable Form Drill System Enables Company to Bore Large Diameters
Nass Magnet (Hanover, Germany) invested in a new machining center with a rotary transfer machine with eight stations for double-sided machining.

PWP-D form drill system

Insertable Form Drill System Provides Quality Surface Finish
To be able to manufacture the components of electro-pneumatic valves in production batches of millions, Nass Magnet (Hanover, Germany) invested in a new machining center with a rotary transfer machine with eight stations for double-sided machining, which came with drills from another supplier.  

Schwanog's Insertable Form Tool Systems
Schwanog’s tooling systems are designed for the manufacture of precision parts in the medical, automotive and aerospace industries, among others.

Schwanog Selector System

Selector System from Schwanog Reduces Scrap
Schwanog will display its Selector System designed to improve random inspection of series parts.

The Skiving Solution
Shaving operations are often the solution for a shop that needs to produce round diameters and other tough contours with tolerances within ± 0.0005 inch.

Form Drill System
With its PWP insertable form drill system, the company addresses the problem of high setup times.

Insertable Form Drill System for Maximum Efficiency
In many applications, the switch from solid carbide drills to insertable form drills has shown to provide unit cost reductions of as much as 40 percent. As the demand for highly complex parts continues to rise, production improvements such as these become even more significant.

ID Grooving, Turning
The company’s WSI system enables users to reduce unit cost by as much as 40 percent, according to the company.                                              The system enables ID grooving (of complex contours), turning or combination of both of these applications.

Coolant-Through Toolholder
The WSI system consists of a coolant-through holder available in all standard diameters as well as infinite length-adjustable ID turning inserts for optimal stability.

Creating the Indexable Insert
In the shop, we are often told how to use a cutting tool, but not necessary the mechanics behind the tool itself or how the tool is manufactured. A few articles Production Machining has published in the past discuss this topic.

Thread Manufacturing on Bone Screws
Schwanog’s project report on its medical technology explains the single machining process on Swiss-type (automatic) lathes using the company’s special whirling systems. It also describes the post-manufacturing process on thread milling and/or thread whirling machines.

G-System

Axial ID Turning
The Schwanog G-System is used for axial face plunge applications for cutting widths from 4 mm to 8 mm using variable diameter ranges. Internal turning applications of parts can be complex depending on the geometry.
