Tools & Clamping

Powerful in all steel materials

With the TC120, TC121 and TC122 product range, Walter is presenting three new blind hole taps in the Supreme line specially developed for machining steel materials.

Bridging standards and specials

In addition to a range of around 50,000 standard tools, Sandvik Coromant serves the manufacturing industry with engineered and Tailor Made tools, using a CAPP (computer-aided process planning) system for quotations and order processing. CAPP can be characterized as a part of a design automation system for managing an entire supply chain from quotation all the way to the delivery of the finished product. Johan Hammarlund, manager for rule-based design and design automation at Sandvik Coromant, tells us more.

From 10 to 700 – mixed machining at an unprecedented level

MAPAL has developed ISO indexable inserts for boring the aluminium cast combination that was successfully in use. Now the development has moved a step further due to downsizing. Together with the top half shell made of aluminium, today manufacturers increasingly rely on sintered steel instead of cast iron for the bottom half shell. This steel features a higher strength than cast iron and is therefore more suited for the increased mechanical loads.

First certified industrial gripper for collaborative operation

SCHUNK is building on its advantage when it comes to grippers for collaborative operation: with the SCHUNK Co-act gripper EGP-C, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology is presenting for the first time an inherently safe industrial gripper that is certified and approved for collaborative operation by the German Social Accident Insurance DGUV.

Compensation jaw with centrifugal force and vibration compensation

The hydraulic compensation jaws from SCHUNK, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology, set a new benchmark in hydraulic compensation jaws for low-deformation workpiece clamping. It is the first time that chuck jaws for compensating the workpiece clamping have successfully been combined with centrifugal force compensation, vibration-damping characteristics and micron-precise concentricity.

Contour-accurate finishing in turbine production

Milling cutters with pine-tree design are used for finishing blade root grooves and blade roots of turbines. FRANKEN has reworked their geometry and linked it with the name Pagode.

Silent turning digitally connected

With an advanced solution that enables manufacturing companies to take steps towards digital machining and Industry 4.0, cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant has introduced connectivity capability to its renowned series of Silent Tools™ tool holders. The innovation is offered as part of the company’s CoroPlus® suite of connected solutions for machine shops keen to embrace the rapidly advancing trend of industry digitalisation.

Boost Your Performance And Productivity When Drilling Iso-P Materials

A solid carbide drill optimized for holemaking in steels, Feedmax -P was designed to harness the power and efficiency of modern machine tools to maximize your cutting data across these applications. When increasing cutting speeds while drilling steel, you face unique challenges in terms of chip evacuation, high heat generation and burrs at the hole entrance and exit. Feedmax -P was designed specifically to overcome these issues and allow for substantial productivity gains.
