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.
Their new 32,000 sq ft facility in Suwanee, GA, is three times larger than their previous location in order to manufacture in the U.S. and expand service and support operations across North America.
The five-hour event included demos of SCHUNK workholding and toolholding working together seamlessly with KOMET cutting tools in a machining center on the production floor.
This introductory 30 percent promotion covers ER collet chucks, ShrinkFIT holders, end mill holders, face mill arbors, and turning tools.
Workholding must be updated to make full use of the small lot flexibility that machine tools now offer so that the same part cost can be achieved in much shorter production runs. Here are some of the latest advances in workholding technology for shops to consider.
MagVISE workholding chucks from Techniks are used for face milling, edge milling, drilling, and even boring operations on all four sides and the top of thick or thin workpieces.
The RRMG Synthetic Gripper 3 from Röhm uses free-form surfaces that adapt to different workpieces geometries, whether they be round or prismatic in shape.
