Check out how a special dual contact stick turning toolholder developed by Briney Tool Systems eliminated the need for one shop to re-engineer their catalog of lathe stick tools.
The way we machine parts has changed significantly over the years. Now it’s time to change how we think about workholding too.
See why Starrag uses shrink fit chucks so their rotationally symmetric clamping body has less interfering contours and higher run-out accuracy when roughing and finishing hard-to-cut materials used for highly precise turbine blades, impellers, blisks and other structurally complex parts.
Green or hard turning on a magnet is becoming more accepted as an alternative for lathe chucking, particularly for rings which are vulnerable to deflection.
Ed Johannesen now leads their design engineering, quality and continuous improvement operations.
Denco is now their agency for the southeastern U.S. and Tool Application Services covers Southern California and northwest Mexico.
Al Dopf, Edward Borsos, Jennifer Allison, Jimmy Clark and Rodney Payton now handle sales and service in various regions across North America.
Take a closer look at some of the newest tooling that can help contract manufacturers meet the machining, micro machining, and laser processing demands for smaller and more complex surgical implants, orthotic devices and medical instruments that are being made from newer materials – and still hold their costs down.
High performance WTE Precision Hydraulic Chucks from ERI America provide extreme temperature stability, super strong holding forces combined with excellent vibration damping and high radial stiffness to guarantee improved surface qualities on the workpiece during machining.
The extremely thin VERO-S NSE mini pneumatic quick-change module from SCHUNK is ideal for retrofitting and fully utilizing existing machines to directly clamp and process small precision parts used in medical technology.
