Superior Tapping Performance in Multiple Materials from WIDIA™ VariTap™

Manufacturers, especially job shops, know better than most the pressures of ever-increasing customer demands and the equally demanding requirements to control costs. Multi-purpose tools have been one method many shops use to bridge the gap – excellent in certain materials and “good enough” in others to get the job done. Field tests are confirming the…

Kennametal Announces Breakthrough KM4X100™ Spindle Connection

The spindle connection is the “handshake” — the interface between the machine tool´s spindle and toolholder. As such, this vital component has to provide the torque and bending load capacity compatible with the machine-tool´s operating specifications. But when machining high-strength materials like titanium and other alloys, cutting forces generate bending moments that will exceed the…

Porcupine with unyielding spines

After the successful market launch of the F5041 and F5141 shoulder mills, Walter is now launching the F5138 – the first porcupine cutter in a refined Blaxx™ design. Effective performance in this milling category requires the most stable and reliable tool concepts – and it is precisely this requirement that Walter Blaxx™ fulfils. The user…

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…

Hurco to Showcase New “i” Series Machines at EMO

Machines on display include the VMX42i 3-axis mill, the VMX42SRTi 5-axis mill, the VMX24HSi high speed mill, and the mill turn TMX8MYSi multitasking lathe with sub-spindle. All of these “i” series mills include UltiMotionTM, Hurco’s patented motion control system that simultaneously improves surface finish quality while reducing cycle time by up to 30 percent. Additionally,…

New LC 180 hobbing machine combines high chamfer quality with one-cut machining

After hobbing with the usual one-cut strategy, the Chamfer Cut tool additionally generates precise and reproducible chamfers, that are increasingly demanded by the market. The newly developed solution eliminates the former main disadvantage of Chamfer Cut, namely that the chamfering process prolongs machining time. In the past, hobbing and chamfering took too much time at…
