Heimatec Sells Tecnicrafts' Products for Swiss Turning
Heimatec Inc. is selling collets and guide bushings from Tecnicrafts Industries that are exclusively used for Swiss turning applications.
GT 112-E Bar Feeder Loads Small Bar Diameters
LNS’ GT 112-E automatic magazine bar feeder has a dual U-shaped guiding channel with a sectional guiding channel cover, combined with a self-centering bar clamping system that matches the entire diameter range of the lathe.
Preparing for Lights-Out Production
As manufacturers face the challenges of reducing cost-per-part while meeting quality and delivery demands, adding a workerless third shift is a tantalizing possibility. It’s also a bit scary.
Oil/Coolant Mist Collector Addresses Efficiency Challenges
These oil/coolant mist collectors can contribute to employee safety and a better work environment all around.
Choosing an Automatic Bar Feeder
The bar feeder is the most common form of automation for turning operations. Selecting the right one requires consideration of the applications for which it will be used.
Streamline Production with Standardized Processes
To alleviate overlap in communications for the manufacturing community, the MTConnect standardized protocol was developed for CNC machines and other manufacturing equipment.
Celebrating 40 Years by Giving Back
To honor the 40th anniversary of LNS Group (based in Orvin, Switzerland), the company’s more than 800 employees have committed to give back to their communities through public service.
Competition and Technology Drive the Pace of Manufacturing
IMTSTV's Penny Brown recently spoke with Steve Fritzinger, from NetApp, about competition and technology driving the manufacturing industry's pace and why companies must adapt to this change if they want to survive.
Shopfloor Data and the Future of Manufacturing
Redundancy is far too common in many areas of life. Standardized processes that streamline production might be the perfect solution.
Technologies for Chip and Coolant Management
To the casual observer, removing the chips created during a metalworking manufacturing process may seem about as complicated as emptying a waste basket.
Communication Among Workcell Components
An Ethernet-based system acts as a conduit for relaying operational data between the programming software, controller, bar feeder, machine tool and parts unloader.
The Evolution of Feeding Barstock
When the ancient Egyptians employed the first known turning machines, productivity was probably not a top-of-mind issue. Given an abundance of slave labor, it’s likely the pharaohs enjoyed relatively low production costs. Today, of course, improving productivity is critical in any manufacturing operation that does not rely on plentiful, cheap labor.
