Using the ROTA NCR 6-jaw power chuck from SCHUNK, even pre-machined parts with diameters up to 1,200 mm can be perfectly centered on large lathes without deformation of the workpiece.
DE-STA-CO’s new series of pneumatic swing clamps is ideal for installations where hydraulic power is not suitable. Equipped with sensing capability that allows for precise control and monitoring of the clamping position, the 9500 series exerts a clamping force ranging from 41 lb to 212 lb without deforming delicate parts.
New Vista Corporation has developed a Thread Verification Unit for use in automatic toolchanging machining centers. The TVU-IR resides in a CNC’s toolchanger, and is automatically deployed like any other tool. The TVU-IR automatically checks for the presence, size, and depth of internal or external threads.
Featuring a Super ZX multi-layered coating, the new grades AC510U and AC520U from Sumitomo Electric Carbide, Inc. are perfect for roughing, finishing, and medium cut machining of super alloy materials. The Super ZX Coating consists of ultra-thin layers of TiAlN and AlCrN, alternately stacked up to 1,000 layers. As a result, higher speed capabilities and greater wear resistance are achieved.
THINBIT®, manufactured by Kaiser Tool Company, simplifies their product offering with the new GROOVE ‘N TURN® toolholder system. Specially designed to work with GROOVE ‘N TURN® inserts, this toolholder will replace several existing toolholder styles.
Onsrud Cutter LP, a leading supplier of cutting tools to the aerospace industry, has introduced a line of high-performance end mills for titanium materials. The offering consists of roughers and finishers optimized for deep pocket milling. Roughers are designed for high metal removal rates with addition of variable flute indexing that reduces chatter.
BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. extends its popular Fullcut Mill line with the new Straight Shank FCR, designed for greater DOC and lower cutting resistance. The new Straight Shank FCR’s geometry expands capabilities in multi-functional milling, achieving supreme performance for ramping, helical-, shoulder- and plunge-milling operations.
Seco Tools Inc. has announced the availability of its newest generation Crownloc? drilling system featuring new fully-hardened (R7 and R5) and low-friction nickel-coated drill bodies (-R7) as well as a stronger retention rod in 12 ? 13 mm diameters.
REGO-FIX® has expanded its revolutionary powRgrip® toolholding system with the PG Microbore Collets.
Viewpoint Revisited: Two years after this presentation was originally published, the insights being explored to bring cutting technology to the frontline of U.S. manufacturing are worth thinking through one more time, in the face of some potentially tough economic times.
A Jig-less Tooling Concept: Sweden is a high-cost country, but SAAB Aerostructures keeps winning orders ? currently supplying the latest programs of both Airbus and Boeing with composite parts. Richard Lindquits of SAAB shows us one of the key techniques he uses to remain a preferred supplier to the big integrators.
The ROTA NCS 6-jaw power chuck from Schunk ensures minimum deformation of the workpieces and allows high precise machining. Active pull-down force distributed on six jaws, highest axial run-out accuracy and the best run-out. This sealed 6-jaw power chuck is…
