Filter by Process Zone:
Mazak’s VC-Ez 20 is the first of three vertical machining centers (VMCs) that offer much the same functionality and performance as previous models, but in a more compact and more affordable package.
Thanks to a 75% increase in work envelope and high traverse rates, Matsuura USA’s MAM72-52V processes larger-diameter and heavier workpieces than its predecessor. Integrated tower pallet enables lights-out production.
With Quick and Simple Startup of Robotization (QSSR), Fanuc simplifies the process of connecting and programming a Fanuc robot or cobot. The all-in-one package enables operators to program the robot using the machine’s CNC.
Doosan’s DHF 8000ST is a single-table version of the company’s DHF 8000 5-axis horizontal machining center (HMC) that incorporates a turning function so manufacturers can save time by moving from roughing to finishing with one setup.
Available in 4- and 5-axis versions, Chiron’s dual-spindle DZ 22 has a fast spindle for machining aluminum and aluminum alloy workpieces and a strong spindle for machining hard materials and large tools.
Available in two versions with varying levels of functionality, transfluid’s Windows-based t project software links geometry and material data to achieve precise bending results.
Two models – the 2.5 and 4.0 – from Kaast Machine Tools ensure consistently accurate strength-promoting beads in materials up to 0.15-inch (4mm) thick. Available with mechanically (ZSM) or hydraulically (ZSH) driven upper rolls.
IRMCO Advanced Metalforming Lubricant Technologies’ iNSIGHT enables metal stampers to track the rate of chemical consumption by part and process and compare the data to tool life to pinpoint the actual cost per part for each process in a facility.
Two standard models – the eRB80 TS and eRB150 TS – electric upcut tube saws from Innovative Engineered Solutions (iES) cut diameters up to 3.5 inches (90mm) and 5.9 inches (150mm), respectively.
HGG Profiling Equipment’s ProCutter900 RB increases throughput by continuously feeding, cutting and profiling, and moving pipe out. The small-footprint machine’s accuracy dramatically reduces post-cutting grinding, fitting and welding time.
An automated version of Glebar’s TF-9BHD infeed/thrufeed centerless grinder, the TF-9D features the widest work wheel on the market. Customizable interface designed for automation and 8-5/8-inch-wide work wheel combine to increase throughput.
Featuring a compact layout, integrated loading/unloading capability, and easy-to-use programming software, BLM Group’s Smart Bender enables an operator to go from design to part in one click and walk away.
Smart Visual Inspection Technology Meets Metrology Products
A new Mitutoyo-Kitov agreement will lead to the integration of Kitov technologies in Mituoyo’s metrology solutions. Look for future development of more solutions to come from the new partners as they combine Mitutoyo’s measurement technologies with Kitov’s planning and inspection technologies.
Unison Ups Product Support Scope, Accessibility with ‘UltimateCare’
The rebranded service program facilitates selection of the right maintenance solutions, and also offers additional services such as CAD modellng, component prototyping and process optimization. Customers can choose services ala-carte or in tailored, bundled agreements.
