The next time you think about setting up a tapping operation with a collet chuck the same old way you always have, you may want to think again. There are now tap holders designed specifically to mitigate the load imposed on the tap by essentially absorbing synchronization error.
When a submarine manufacturer saved significant time and cost by using Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing to 3D print a titanium Variable Ballast tank, the technology became the only industrial-scale metal 3D printing process with approved parts for land, sea, air, and space applications.
Efficient attachment removal has always been tricky. Without the ability to mechanically position the tool so that a closer cut can be achieved with less residual metal, workers were forced to deal with the drawbacks of traditional removal processes. But not anymore: A small alteration has made a huge impact on the attachment removal process.
Visual Knowledge Share is a multilingual and digital work instruction application that helps shops increase quality, profitability, and productivity and get the most out of their factory by displaying standardized, advanced work instructions while monitoring factory performance.
Waveform Roughing in Vero Surfcam from DM Solutions ensures that a constant volume of material is removed for high speed machining of harder materials by using as much of the flute length as possible to distribute wear evenly along the entire cutting length, rather than just the tip.
The COMET L3D 2 sensor from Zeiss quickly delivers precise 3D data of components even in difficult ambient conditions, automatically recognizes changes in vibration and exposure, and offers high-end technology for exceptional data quality with maximum ease of use.
The Rhino Cart Mobile Fixturing Station from Strong Hand Tools includes the welding table plus a 66-piece Clamp and Component Fixturing Kit that mates to the CNC precision-bored 5/8 in tabletop holes for accurate clamping or fixturing on the tabletop.
