Dynabrade’s line of random orbital sanding pads are designed as a single piece, which creates a smooth, efficient sanding experience. They also fit most competitors’ sanders.
The MC025 Advance and MD025 Supreme cutters from Walter feature high cutting speeds, exceptional reliability, and universal applicability.
With Solid Edge 2021, Siemens furthers expands the functionality of its product development software suite. Enhancements include new tools for cloud-based collaboration.
Improve roughing operations and achieve superior surface finishes without high machine power consumption with Seco Tools’ Double Turbo line of cutters. Double-sided inserts and superior milling grades significantly lower finishing cycle times.
Sandvik Coromant’s M5C90 milling cutter resolves the challenges of machining lightweight aluminium by roughing and finishing in one pass cylinder heads, cylinder blocks, and other automotive components formerly made from heavier cast iron alloys.
Armed with a special coating and proprietary sputtering technology, Kennametal’s KCS10B overcomes the most common challenges of machining superalloys — cratering and depth-of-cut notching — that often cause unexpected and even catastrophic tool failure.
Hoffmann Group expands its family of high-feed-rate milling tools with the Garant Power Q Double all-round system. Three-part cutting edge increases reliability and productivity by reducing cutting forces and optimizing chip evacuation.
The dual-contact grip of Big Kaiser’s fullcut mill contact grip is a threaded coupling system that achieves machining capacity close to that of integrated types. The taper and flange face make close contact for solid connection, and one holder allows selection from multiple heads.
Platinum Tooling Technologies expands its product line with Heimatec live and static tools for most Citizen lathes. Designed to optimize the machine’s parameters, the precision tools are efficient and cost-effective.
Polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PcBN) mini-tipped inserts are a great way to lower per-part cost when turning hardened steel components. Kennametal´s two grades of double-sided PcBN inserts increase productivity and extend tool life when machining materials up to 65 HRC.
Dormer Pramet targets turning center and lathe applications with an insert, two geometries, a grade, blades, and tooling that support parting-off and grooving. Double-edged insert supports 60% capacity over the LCMF16 insert.
Featuring a compact outer diameter and shorter than conventional compensating chucks, MicroCentric’s chuck has a collet with a floating seat that enables the holder to compensate up to 0.060-inch (1.5 mm).
Factory Robots Hit Record 2.7 Million Globally
New installations have been down in the U.S., Europe, and China, due to slowdowns in automotive and electrical/electronic sectors, and Covid isn’t helping –– nevertheless, the number of industrial robots operating today has never been higher.
CenterLine Receives 2020 National Manufacturing Leadership Award
The company’s robotics simulations draw winning accolades in NAM’s Engineering and Production Technology category.
