Structural components of a machine tool now contain gauges that allow the machine itself to measure process stress and vibration. Here’s a review of this and other new developments in conditioning monitoring and predictive maintenance systems.
Omega M726 and M725 end mills from IMCO are ideal for machining hardened steels up to 58-62 HRC, running wet or dry.
InvoMilling CAM software from Sandvik Coromant generates the CNC program to produce different gear profiles using CoroMill 161 and CoroMill 162 milling cutters.
The Blaxx F5138 helical flute cutter from Walter delivers superior performance and reliability in profiling and shoulder milling operations in steel, stainless steel, non-ferrous metal, difficult to cut material, or cast iron.
The tools in the versatile Double Octomill R220.48 face milling cutter from Seco Tools are divided into three different pitches that optimize productivity for different machines and materials.
The CoroCut QD system from Sandvik Coromant includes CoroTurn SL blades that keep vibration to a minimum for deep internal grooving and parting off with long overhangs.
Tiger·tec Silver ISO K inserts from Walter permit reduced machining time by enabling higher cutting parameters, and are suitable for wet or dry machining.
The VSM11 platform from WIDIA provides high quality and cuts costs in multiple functions, such as shoulder milling, slotting, pocket milling, ramping and helical interpolation.
The X4 multi-edge system from Seco Tools is great for external grooving and parting-off operations involving small parts, slim bars and tubes made from a wide variety of common materials.
The CoroBore 825 SL rotating axial face grooving tool from Sandvik Coromant is ideal for use in the pumps and valves, hydraulics and pulp and paper industries.
