Flexible lightweight maximizes the field of application of milling/turning machines

It is a combination of the proven lathe chuck of the series ROTA-S plus and ROTA-S plus 2.0 with extended guideways, and transforms them into large, light chucks, which are particularly versatile in use. Compared to conventional lathe chucks used for large clamping diameters, the weight with ROTA-S flex drops down to 60%. At an identical…

Press deburring with new hobbing machine LCH 180 two

Continual loading and press deburring occur in parallel during machining time. Separate machine operations take place on two machine tables, each able to swivel 180 degrees and easily accessible: roughing in two phases, pressing, and finishing. After the blank is locked in and tightened, it is swivelled and the first cut of the gear takes…

Universal Turning in a New Dimension

With the IT600, the INDEX Group opens a new chapter in universal turning. Through the use of field-proven components, the flexible IT600 is designed to manufacture medium and small lot sizes up to batch size 1 of mold making, tooling and prototyping considerably faster and more economically than with conventional universal lathes. By the innovative…

TRIBOS Polygonal Clamping Technology: Now available for the pioneering HSK-E 20 spindle interface

The SCHUNK TRIBOS-Mini HSK-E 20 polygonal chuck is the first standardized precision toolholder for micro machining with the pioneering HSK-E 20 spindle interface. In comparison to conventional short taper interfaces, the HSK-E 20 interface provides an axially flat work surface for the toolholder, ensuring excellent change and positioning accuracy. Also, the narrow tolerances of the…

EMO 2013: Made by Heller

More machines than ever underscore the aim to further intensify the link to real-world practice in Hanover and present “Made by HELLER” end-to-end productivity. H 4500: solid all-rounder in HSK-A 100 range With the H 4500 4-axis machining centre, HELLER will for the first time be presenting a machine concept at EMO 2013 designed for…

Hinges with extra functions

Hinges are anything but low-interest products, considering that quite a bit more is expected of them in many applications than simply be the axis of rotation for flaps or doors. If doors are expected to engage at different opening angles, be fixable in any position, or require a variable operating force, it might be worth taking a look at the…

TENDO hydraulic expansion power also for Ø 16 mm now

This price-optimized precision  mounting opens up new efficiency potentials by downsizing the tools. It has been possible to achieve a high run-out accuracy, torque transmission, and optimum vibration damping, and to some extent a higher time-chip-volume than with a 20 mm diameter shank during trichoid milling. TENDO E compact is the answer to the increasing…

A success story of productive bar and chuck machining

The automatic production lathe INDEX C100 is one of the most successful CNC production lathes. This machine has set industry standards in terms of productivity, damping, rigidity and tool lives. The design of two Y-axes opposite each other has given the user an enormous productivity boost to minimize cycle costs. In particular, the two or…
