Maintenance
With 12 1.5 watt LED bulbs, the multi-functional SysLite II delivers an even, balanced light source, casting a brilliant and consistent white light (5,000 Kelvin).
Ideal for any work environment, the portable SysLite II from Festool mounts on a magnetic base or hangs by a swivel hook.
Automation/Robotics, Metal Forming & Fabricating
Using this UR10 collaborative robot from Universal Robots in polishing applications has significantly increased production, eliminating bottlenecks while improving the work environment for the workers. 
Introducing a collaborative robot in the polishing department increased production by 50 percent at Paradigm.
Cutting Tools, Tooling & Workholding
The small-diameter MFH Mini high-feed endmill from Kyocera uses a unique design that reduces impact on the insert when making initial contact with the workpiece to achieve smooth cutting with low resistance, reduce chatter and increase feed rates. The MFH Mini also exhibits high chip evacuation due to its newly developed chipbreaker.
The MFH Mini endmill from Kyocera supports the higher precision rough processing required for mold applications.
Cutting Tools, Tooling & Workholding
The GC3225 grade insert from Sandvik is ideal for secure and trouble-free machining, even in the most difficult conditions, in cast iron turning applications. By using the insert in machining of nodular cast iron it was possible to increase tool life by 70 percent compared to a competitor grade.
New GC3225 and GC3210 grade inserts from Sandvik Coromant provide turning and machining reliability and productivity in intermittent cuts, high cutting speeds, wet or dry machining, machined surface or light cast skin.
