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.
Shaun Thomas will be instrumental in managing all design, engineering, and manufacturing processes.
Their new Houston Tec-Center is fully equipped for process demonstrations, application support, and repair or service.
This new office and warehouse facility in Queretaro will initially provide local sales and service, then later they will warehouse and stock an inventory of chucks and other workholding products.
Available to mount either manual or power chucks, full grip pie jaws from Dillon Manufacturing reduce distortion and provide more drive friction during turning operations.
The Digital Grip Force Analyzer Software and Kit from Kitagawa North-Tech allows users to easily, accurately and quickly analyze and measure grip force performance of their CNC lathes and turning centers via a desktop PC, laptop or tablet so that they can identify and correct any gripping force issues that exist.
Ideal for the precision grinding of crankshaft and camshafts, SRG Steady Rests from SMW Autoblok clamp diameters from 12 mm to 136 mm.
