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.
Jon-Michael Raymond now manages their U.S. sales in the welding, industrial and STAFDA sectors.
Ty Weber is the new product manager for their abrasives division.
The new 59,000 sq ft production and office complex will help them better serve the European market.
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.
Briney Tooling Systems developed a custom HSK50E balanceable grinding wheel arbor with a special anti-bacterial/viral chrome plating to meet demanding ISO 13485 requirements for medical OEMs and contract manufacturers.
Here are solutions for applications requiring high tolerance and precision surface finish, including grinding technology, sawing and cutoff machines and a variety of finishing systems, such as lapping, balancing, honing and polishing machines. You’ll also find advancements in abrasive size, shape or composite materials, and nano-materials for improved surface finishes in more constrictive areas.
