Efficient Bar Machining of Complex Parts

The bar capacity of the main spindle on the SPRINT 20|5 is Ø 20 mm / 0.8 in. The counter spindle can be optionally equipped for shaft unloading of workpieces measuring Ø 20 x 600 mm / 0.8 x 23.6 in. The main spindle is also equipped with a C-axis for the machining of complex operations. The counter spindle is equipped with a C-axis when combined with the optional driven tools for rear-sided machining. 
The SPRINT 20|5 from DMG MORI is ideal for the high volume production of simple to medium complexity parts machined from bar.

Mill, Drill, Grind Aerospace Parts on One Machine

The unique two-axis Programmable Coolant Nozzle (PCN) handles variations in wheel diameter and changes in cutting direction while maintaining ideal coolant flushing conditions. It also allows for intermittent NC-controlled, electrically powered rotary dressing that trues the wheel to reestablish profile geometry on the cutting wheel. 
The flexible G7 Grinder 5-axis horizontal machining center from Makino grinds, drills and mills aerospace blades, vanes, turbine disks and other complex components.

Chucks for Machining Oil/Gas Pipes

Pneumatic 6-jaw front-end LVE chucks can be configured to machine bent pipe; ES versions have rapid stroke and clamping stroke; other versions have retracting clamping arms for pre-centering the workpiece; still others have spring clamping and pneumatic release. 
Pneumatic 6-jaw front-end LVE chucks from RÖHM are ideal for machining the ends of especially large and long pipes used for extracting crude oil or natural gas.

Apollo Appoints Cole-Tuve as Exclusive Distributor

Apollo machines offer great speed and accuracy (2 holes per second; up to 300,000 holes with a single punch, and as little as 0.2 mm from the first to the last hole on a tube 3 m long). Material can be placed in the machine manually and then processed automatically, or fed automatically from a bundled storage component and processed through the machine in as little as one meter per second.
Cole-Tuve will sell their High-Speed CNC Tube & Pipe Punching and Drilling Machines in the U.S. and Canada.

Bystronic Premiers 6 kW Fiber Laser

A cutting trial demonstrated how much faster the new Bysprint 6 kW fiber laser cutting system was when compared to a CO2 laser cutting system.
The raw speed of the BySprint Fiber 6 kW laser cutting machine promises to change the operating economics of sheet metal fabrication shops.

FABTECH 2014: Welding, Tube & Pipe Fabrication

Booth C-2454: When Velocity contact tips  from Tweco / Victor Technologies were tested in this heavy fabrication application using .045 in and 1/16 in gas shielded flux cored wire, 13 contact tips lasted for five months.

FABTECH 2014: Welding

Booths C-2022, C-2044: The Weld Sequencer from Lincoln Electric allows users to pictorially explain where to add the welds step-by-step.
Here are some reviews of the welding equipment and other systems being exhibited at this year's show.

FABTECH 2014: Welding, Cutting Systems

Booth C-2466: The compact SGX automated cutting machine from ESAB is a rugged, high-performance system that carries up to three tool stations, including up to two oxy-fuel torches and one plasma station that can be equipped with m3-IGC Precision Plasma System for high-quality plasma cutting.
Here are some reviews of the welding equipment and cutting systems being exhibited at this year's show.

Fast Cutting, Long Lasting Portable Band Saw Blade

The Morse 811 portable saw blade is the fastest cutting, longest, and portable blade in the market today.
The Morse 811 portable band saw blade from M. K. Morse combines an aggressive tooth with a variable tooth pattern to reduce vibration and increase cutting speed.

Unitized Punch Tooling Applications

The new unitized tooling system combines standard Multicyl MC series, the HZ frame, and the HZ unit from Unipunch.
Multicyl combines the standard Multicyl MC series, the HZ frame, and the HZ unit from Unipunch to punch angles, tube edges, and hard to reach extrusions.
