Tungaloy announced that its “TCB” counterboring tool series now includes a 10–16 mm-diameter range lineup.
German clamping tool specialist BESSEY is providing an extensive range of information on self-adjusting toggle clamps on its new microsite in 12 languages. Designers, craftsmen and buyers can find technical details and interesting facts about the unique range of accessories as well as exciting excerpts from the history of the range.
With the intelligent SCHUNK EGL PROFINET parallel gripper, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology SCHUNK has been exploiting the potential for highly flexible applications for users in the diverse Industry 4.0 environment. The world’s first PROFINET-certified universal gripper with integrated electronics unites power, diversity and intelligence. Its high-performance PROFINET interface creates the optimum conditions for real-time process regulation and maximum performance.
In order to overcome the challenges of chip formation and evacuation when drilling non-ferrous metals, cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant has unveiled its CoroDrill® 880 CVD diamond-coated insert grades, GCN124 and GCN134. The super-hard properties of the diamond coating provide long tool life and combine with innovative chip breaker and geometry designs to guarantee superior performance when drilling materials such as aluminium.
In many production facilities, Weldon tool holders are used as the standard chuck for solid carbide milling cutters. However, the design of this type of chuck limits its application. Indeed, the tolerances of the fit for the tool adapter are high (at a clamping diameter of 20 mm, the maximum clearance is already 22 µm). This results in a large run-out error that causes imbalance, as well as wear on one side of the tool, creating adverse effects on machining quality.
Constant clamping forces, minimal maintenance costs as well as high energy efficiency, and productivity are assured with the versatile SCHUNK ROTA NCA power lathe chuck. With its large dimensioned through-hole for automated bar loading and its convenient clamping range, the weight-reduced lathe chuck covers an extremely wide range of applications.
To enhance milling performance on ISO S materials, cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant is introducing a series of end mills featuring unique geometries and grades. The CoroMill® Plura HFS (High-Feed Side milling) ISO S cutters deliver reliable and productive results on workpieces made from titanium and nickel-based alloys, bringing benefits to both aerospace engine and frame applications.
In the future, the high-precision SCHUNK TRIBOS polygonal clamping technology will also be used for lathes and automatic revolving transfer machines. SCHUNK, a competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology, has developed special polygonal toolholders with ER cone for this purpose, which can be combined with all commercially available mountings for ER collets and with driven tools in particular.
Finding and managing tool data can be a time consuming task. Making sure different tool items fit together when creating the tool assemblies for CAM programming can be equally difficult. This is why Sandvik Coromant is offering two different solutions for creating tool assemblies – to best suit your needs.
