New Seco Ceramic Inserts And Cutter Bodies For Speed Milling Of Nickel-Based Superalloys

CS300 inserts are SiAlON-type ceramics that offer high notch wear resistance, toughness and thermal shock resistance. The inserts also optimize flank wear resistance at higher cutting speeds ranging from 600 – 1,200 meters per minute and enable feeds from 0.05 – 0.15 mm per tooth. Together, these attributes reduce machining cost per workpiece, increase output, shorten lead times and lower energy consumption.

Up to 90 per cent more productive – and suitable for universal use suitable for universal use

The Tübingen-based premium-tool manufacturer is now expanding its thread milling cutter range. Three new thread milling cutter inserts with smaller corner radii enhance the versatility of the existing tool bodies; two new bodies now allow M56 and M64 coarse-pitch threads to be cut. These new additions transform the thread milling cutter family from one that was focused primarily on productivity to a family that can now be used universally.

Micro cutting for everyone!

WJS launched a new unique micro cutting feature for its waterjet machines. To cut narrow incisions in hard materials with high precision requires a specially developed waterjet cutting process. FAWJ stands for Fine Abrasive Water Jet (micro waterjet, finecut), and is a unique and world-class cutting process launched back in 2008 by Water Jet Sweden. Since then, the technique has been applied to a specially developed precision machinery, designed to manufacture micro-components.

Schaeffler relies on DMG MORI machines for additive manufacturing

For many years now Schaeffler and DMG MORI have cooperated closely in a long-term and successful partnership. Most recently DMG MORI honoured Schaeffler Technologies AG & Co. KG as overall winner with the “Partner Award 2017”. The two companies bundle their innovative strengths and contribute to a mutual boost in efficiency and process optimisation. That is why Schaeffler has always relied on future-orientated technologies.

iRex 2017 – The Robot Revolution

The iRex 2017 was held in Tokyo to discuss the topic “The Robot Revolution Has Begun – Toward Heartwarming Society” and showcased the latest developments in the robotics industry with a special focus on subjects such as artificial intelligence, big data, and new communication strategies and networks.

Behind the Scenes: Two Years of Material Science Development and Testing

There are currently two main uses for 3D printing: prototyping and production. The majority of additive manufacturing companies focus only on meeting prototyping needs because the material demands for strong physical properties are less rigorous. 3D Systems excels at both prototyping and production needs because they have put the time and effort into making sure each material delivers the quality expected from each part. In many instances, choosing production-grade materials is more cost efficient than only serving prototyping needs because the parts last longer without failing and that durability over time saves money and effort:

Flow Unveils New Mach 200 Waterjet at FABTECH: A revolutionary combination of value, flexibility, and performance

Flow International Corporation, one of the world’s leading developer and manufacturers of ultrahigh-pressure waterjet solutions for cutting applications, announced the release of the Mach 200, an entirely new waterjet system designed as a practical and flexible waterjet solution. The newest addition to the Flow Mach Series features world-renowned Flow waterjet technology which is backed by industry-leading FlowCare premier service and support. The Mach 200 is specifically engineered to affordably meet waterjet applications from stone to carbon fiber.

Innovative automation and technology portfolio for higher machine tool productivity

Siemens presented at the EMO Hannover 2017 with an array of new hardware and software solutions for its integrated Sinumerik portfolio. The spectrum on offer comprises integrated industrial software and automation technology designed to enable machine tool manufacturers to leverage the full productivity potential of the digital factory.
