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.
The Hermle company has developed the C 650 to extend its Performance Line series with a major step upwards, and now provides three machine models for economical 3 and 5 axis machining. The Performance Line is positioned below the High Performance Line consisting of models C 12, C 22, C 32, C 42, C 52 and C 62, and it very nearly matches their performance capabilities. The only differences are to be found in the accessory diversity, the price and of course the naming.
Okuma Corporation has developed a large 2-saddle CNC lathe, the SIMUL TURN LU7000EX, for the large, difficult-to-cut parts of heavy industry. The LU7000 EX has a large work envelope that handles super-large diameter, long parts with a maximum turning diameter of ø900 mm and spindle bore diameter of ø560 mm (Optional). It is a 2-Saddle CNC lathe that achieves high productivity, including simultaneous turning with upper and lower turrets and follower rest applications.
Cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant has unveiled a new high-feed version of the CoroMill® 745 face milling cutter, featuring a 25° entering angle for additional productivity gains when milling steel and cast iron workpieces. The new high-feed version facilitates even higher metal removal rates (MRR) in applications with depths of cut up to 2.8 mm (0.110 inch). The new cutter is set to benefit sectors such as die and mould, pump and valve, oil and gas, automotive, power generation and general engineering.
WNT’s latest solid carbide milling development, the Monstermill PCR UNI enables precise, process-secure, ramping/plunge milling at high angles or with extreme chip volumes during full slot milling, providing a new milling solution thanks to its innovative geometry, four flute design and patented centring tip. The design delivers powerful and extremely quiet milling across a range of materials including steel, stainless steels and cast iron.
