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.

Passive/Dynamic Vibration Control Technology Boosts Metalcutting Productivity

Uncontrolled vibration creates multiple problems in metalcutting operations. Varying forces in the cutting process cause vibration and tool chatter that degrade part surface quality, quickly wear or break cutting tools and damage machine tool components. Trends in product design can also incite vibration.

Lifelong maintenance-free 24V premium electric gripper with IO-link

SCHUNK further expands its PGN-plus gripper flagship: with the PGN-plus-E IO-link, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology presents the world’s first lifelong maintenance-free 24V premium electric gripper, which completely fulfills the IO-link class B standard.

Slim clamping solutions facilitate accessibility

As a result of the success of complete machining on 5-axis machines, workpiece accessibility is an aspect of growing importance in clamping technology. While in the past it was necessary to use long projecting special tools or multiple setups to machine workpieces over clamping claws or chuck jaws, intelligently designed clamping devices of today allow significantly better access by the tools, in addition to processes that are much more efficient.

DrillMeister features simple and swift drill head indexing due to its unique self-clamping system. Tool replacement is easy: just replace the drill head. There is no need to remove the entire drill body from the toolholder and re-adjust the tool overhang, thus reducing a large amount of tool change time. A drill head can be mounted or removed with small torque and can be done in the machine as needed.
