It’s time for machine tool builders and machining companies to shelf the long-standing ISO 1940-1 standard in favor of ISO 16084:2017. Not only is balancing tools rarely necessary, it can also be risky.
Available in a wide variety of toolholder lengths and diameters for optimal rigidity and clearance, Samchully Workholding’s SK series provide 1 micron runout accuracy as well as three times better runout repeatability and double the gripping force of a comparable ER collet chuck.
Ideal for workholding applications that require durability and high strength, such as high-speed machining, Dillon’s Fast-Trac jaw nuts provide more productivity per square foot of manufacturing space. They convert standard chucks 6 inches to 24 inches in diameter into quick-change chucks.
Seco Tools’ Duratomic TM grades has thermal and mechanical properties as well as chrome-colored Used-Edge Detection technology to minimize waste. With new geometries and chipbreakers, three grades are tailored for distinct application demands.
Seco’s 335.18 and 335.19 cutters have close-pitch insert pockets to create stability. Meanwhile, a corrosion-resistant cutter body contributes to high performance when milling stainless steel, titanium and superalloys.
Seco expands its range of Jetstream tooling holders, offering 182 new products for all inch, metric and Seco-Capto holders. The internal coolant technology extends tool life while shrinking setup and indexing times.
Unlike boring tools that involve time-consuming benchwork and complicated measuring for proper part repositioning, Seco Tool’s JC898 rougher and JC899 hybrid stacker simplify CFRP-titanium and CFRP-aluminum hybrid material holemaking and milling operations by eliminating post-machining work.
Offering flexibility and cost savings, the Preci-Flex modular toolholding system from Exsys Canada enables shops to capitalize on the ER collet pocket concept. Compact design enables maximum torque transmission for better machining accuracy.
IBAG North America’s space-saving converter enables two microline spindles to operate simultaneously from one drive at speeds from 5,000 rpm up to 100,000 rpm.
BIG KAISER redesigns the manuals, DXF and STEP (STP) Search models on their website.
Orders of $206.3 million were down 1.9 percent from the previous month.
Instead of using 3-jaw or 4-jaw chucks, the TJR AR-5C Pneumatic Collet Rotary Table from CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies provides a highly rigid, accurate way to grip and index products suited for 5C collets.
Solar Atmospheres Eastern PA Commissions 20-Bar High Pressure Gas Quench Furnace
The furnace utilizes a 600-HP cooling motor and fan with a creative gas nozzle design to maximize gas flow as it moves through the hot zone and the heat exchanger and back across the workload
