High-performance milling cutters combine high cutting data with long tool life and efficiency, but certain factors must be considered when selecting tools for different machining tasks.
Seco Assistant mobile app streamlines the daily machining experience, combining vital information and tools with a smooth user experience.
Kennametal’s digital-ready fine boring tools are easy-to-use for more productive, predictable and accurate boring.
System enables smooth and clean cooling to reduce shrinking and cooling cycle times.
This broaching tool manufacturer had been making its products the same way since 1945, but a new owner updated everything, from the equipment to the culture and the way it does business.
A serrated, magnetic device has been developed to speed centerline adjustment for Iscar’s Whisperline vibration-damping boring bars.
T-A Pro drill designed to extend tool life, create consistent quality holes and provide better chip evacuation.
How does reaming compare to single-point boring? A supplier of reaming tools compares these processes commonly used to finish bores and offers tips for those considering reaming.
Walter USA’s Supreme DB133 solid carbide micro drill delivers high precision and productivity.
Carmex diamond PCD, CVD-T and PCBN turning inserts designed to increase efficiency and productivity for difficult materials.
NSK America’s i-Speed 5 utilizes multiple spindles with independent rpm settings.
Rollfeed turning adds a third axis to turning operations that moves simultaneously with the X and Z axes to “roll” the cutting tool with a special insert geometry across the surface of the part. The result is reduced machining times, minimized tooling costs and high surface qualities.
Machine shops involved in turning hard parts will be interested in learning about these new inserts that were specially designed for this particular operation.
This easy-loading 5-mm I.C. micro insert is designed to run at maximum feed rates and is equipped with fine-pitched densities for high-productivity machining.
The EWD EVO digital boring head from Big Kaiser connects with newly developed smartphone and tablet app.
The Eldorado M75-30T from Kays Engineering enables faster part loading and unloading.
Big Kaiser’s Nirox drill from Sphinx suited for low rpms.
High-pressure coolant that is efficiently applied to a cutting tool will enable faster, more precise cuts; prevent oxidation of the tooling and workpieces; and prolong the life of a cutting tool.
A variety of tooling spindle options brings micromachining work within reach for shops looking to expand their capabilities.
Rollomatic LaserSmart 510 laser cutting and ablation machine incorporates technologies to sharpen thick-film, diamond-coated carbide tools to keep cutting edges sharp.
New feed-rate-optimization technology can enable CAM programmers to reduce cycle times and increase tool life for milling and turning operations.
