Production Machining showcases some of the latest cutting tool technology from Horn, Heimatec, Big Kaiser, Tungaloy and Inovatools.
Pressure-Lok air chuck is charged with air by a special handle and holds air pressure for over two weeks.
Angled round toolholders position the insert at 30-, 45- or 60-degree angles for reliefs, undercuts and angled outer diameter and face grooves.
Chuck jaw has a very long compensation stroke, giving it increased flexibility for clampable workpiece geometries and a wide variety of applications.
Many understand the advantages of thread whirling on a CNC Swiss-type. However, new tooling technology for this thread-machining process can further improve cycle times and reduce cost per part.
Customized coupling bolt’s high-torque design creates better taper contact and delivers higher strength.
Aluminum Roughing End Mill features internal cooling and multiturning to deliver consistently quiet, low-vibration, energy-efficient performance at extremely high feed rates.
High-Speed spindle line utilizes a CNC machine’s existing through-spindle coolant supply as a pressurized power source, eliminating the cost and need of external air or electric power supplies
Latest CBN grades are said to provide more productivity and reliability for machining cast iron, sintered metals and hardened steel.
Options include coolant-through designs up to 1,000 psi on straight and 2,000 psi on angle head tools.
A serrated, magnetic device has been developed to speed centerline adjustment for Iscar’s Whisperline vibration-damping boring bars.
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.
Now offers swiss cutting tools with diameters in fractional inches, starting from 1/64" up to 1/4".
Solid carbide drill for steel applications has unique point design and multiphase coating to last longer, generate lower forces and make better holes.
The pyramids feature a 30-degree mounting surface to ensure maximum clearance for spindle and cutting tool paths, resulting in more machining per setup.
Tool transforms chamfering process to improve cycle time, tool life and surface quality.
Each jaw is independently controlled and monitored by an individual electromechanical drive, which enables many clamping functions — all within one fully automated chuck.
Clamping method enables cutting inserts to be held in place with more force, which, in turn, makes the entire system more rigid and results in higher repeatability.
