Shops that produce engine blocks, heads, cam shafts and crank shafts for powertrains were once plagued with the challenge of removing burrs created by machining. Not anymore.
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.
Rather than focusing only on energy savings or reducing costs associated with large equipment, manufacturers that are looking for potential savings in their plants should take the time to investigate just how much money they could save by switching out an abrasive. In doing so, they should evaluate fully how labor costs tie into the equation.
Thanks to new technology that increases wire life and operator safety as the brush wears, flipping your wire brush during surface cleaning has never been easier.
Proper grinding process parameters can eliminate a lot of the “black art” of CNC grinding. One critical variable is the grinding wheel being used and the dressing of the grinding wheel.
The new 59,000 sq ft production and office complex will help them better serve the European market.
The free app is designed to help metalworking professionals select the optimum abrasive solution.
Their new CNC system will reduce lead times for large grinding wheels by up to 40 percent.
This new linear finishing set from PFERD is ideal for rough stock removal, surface conditioning and consistent, high-quality cosmetic finishing on all metals.
Built with a 0.045 in cutting edge, the general purpose VERSA-CUT abrasive cut-off wheel from Rex-Cut can be used in almost any cutting application to provide the cutting speed of a thin wheel while maintaining the longevity of thicker options.
Enduro-Flex 2-in-1 TURBO finishing flap discs from Walter Surface Technologies use a high-tech blend of self-sharpening grains and cooling agents for ultra-high removal and blending rates without causing surface discoloration on steel, stainless steel and aluminum.
