In the aircraft manufacturing supply chain, one thing is certain: process improvements – both large and small – can have a massive impact on the bottom line.
New grinding technology is being researched on this intermetallic to help lower the costs of manufacturing aerospace engine components, develop grinding expertise, and design custom-bonded abrasive and superabrasive grinding solutions that are ideal for efficient and damage-free grinding of components made of titanium aluminides.
This machine shop halved its cycle time on producing diesel engine manifolds and rocker arms, saved $300,000 a year in machining costs and sidestepped a $500,000 capital expenditure. All with one tool.
We are quickly moving from information technology to intelligent technology, toward a time when a worn cutting tool insert will know when it’s time to be replaced by a fresh one and will ask an available robot to get a new one and make the change.
These advanced laser cutting and inspection systems enable cutting tool manufacturers to achieve results that were formerly unattainable.
March orders of $184.08 million were up six percent over the previous month.
They attain ISO 9001:2008 certification as a KOMET SERVICE partner.
A father-son team grew into full manufacturing and service of special cutting tools, special taps, threading dies and thread gages.
With a total of 14 cutting edges per insert the CoroMill 745 from Sandvik Coromat is a cost-efficient choice for face milling and the assortment includes three pitch versions. For roughing to semi-finishing applications, the strong and light cutting inserts provide reliable face milling in all types of milling machines.
By targeting the coolant stream as close to right place in the cutting zone as possible, coolant-through tooling systems can bring improvements that range from higher cutting speeds to better surface finish by effectively controlling chips and helping to optimize tool life and increase production. Here are some of the latest systems to consider.
Coolant-through ready cutter bodies from Techniks are made from high grade H13 tool steel that is precision ground for accuracy and feature an electroless nickel coating for longevity and rust resistance.
